The Met (as it’s known locally) has stood at the heart of the community of Abertillery for over 130 years.
It hosts a programme of both professional and community events involving the many local choirs, drama societies, musicians, dance schools and other groups, who contribute so much to the cultural life and heritage of this South Wales valley town.
The main auditorium was restored to its former Victorian grandeur during a major building refurbishment between 1999 and 2006. It has retained many of its original features such as the original timber roof structures imported from Canada, iron columns and decorative panels. One of the most famous performers to tread the boards at The Met was Charlie Chaplin.
