About Us

This iconic building Thomas & Evans Hills Works was once the home of Corona Pop. Now it is the dynamic hub of diverse creative organisations and a hive of community regeneration initiatives. Valleys Kids purchased the building in 2011 and it is now the delivery home for Community Enterprise Network, is the base for our ArtWorks Team and hosts Art in the Attic. It is establishing itself as one of the Rhondda’s premier live music venues. Valleys Kids have ambitious plans for the venue, which was officially opened by First Minister, Carwyn Jones in July 2011.

An excellent place to hold an exhibition. The Rhondda Camera Club recently held an exhibition of members work and the gallery was the ideal place with over 100 images on display. The staff were excellent in assisting and guidance on all aspects. The main room is an ideal function room for various events. Definitely worth visiting.


This little gem of a venue is an awesome place for rock in the Rhondda! Rockers in the valley need to carry out a weekly pilgrimage to this musical oasis
