About the Memo

Newbridge Memo Ltd (the Memo) is important to everyone who lives and works in Newbridge and the surrounding districts. From heritage and culture to a range of events from concerts with James Dean Bradfield and local high-profile male voice choirs, to large business conferences, weddings, private parties and afternoon tea with princesses for the children, the Memo has something for everyone.

It’s history is rich and speaks for itself; it is a memorial to the men of Newbridge who gave their lives in WW1, and is a place of huge significance to the miners and their families even now long after the last  colliery  was closed. It was a place renowned throughout the valleys as “The Place to Go” for a good night out.

The current small team of employees and volunteers are determined to do everything they can to re-establish Newbridge Memo as a venue that everyone is talking about and where everyone wants to go.

Interviews will be on Monday 3rd June.
