Exhibition: When War Came to The Rhondda

Tuesday 21st May – Friday 28th June 2024. Drop in any time: 9:30am to 4pm.

War broke out on the 3rd September 1939 when Britain and France declared war on Germany. This led to 6 years of fighting and struggles. Here we tell the story of what happened in the Rhondda during this time. The story of the ordinary people, who joined together during an extraordinary time.

Kindly on loan from the heritage team of the Rhondda Cynon Taf council. Presented in both English and Welsh. This exhibition will take place in our visitor centre. It is FREE for all and no booking is required.
