Tabor Hall
Tabor Hall , is our 'home', located in Vaughan Street, Pwllgwaun, Pontypridd, CF37 1HR

As the name suggests, Tabor Hall was originally built as a place of worship, serving the believers of the Methodist faith for many years and the late Lord Tonypandy preached there on many occasions. The demise of the Christian worship at many chapels in the sixties and seventies resulted in the inevitable closure of Tabor Hall as a place of worship.

Tabor Hall is also the home of The Heritage Singers
