Organised Kaos Youth Circus- Cwmamman Church Hall

The Cwmamman Church Hall was in operation during the 19th century and fell out of operation, into a dire state of disrepair. Luckily it was remembered by Nicola Hemsley, the Director of Organised Kaos, a local circus company. Nicola has fond memories of the Church Hall as it was the first stage that she performed on, it was because of this that she decided to take on this building as her company's permanent venue. Bringing the circus to an area which has a lack of resources and saving the building for the community, good for her!

She found the place lacking foundations and discovered that the heat had caused the floor to collapse! Following their agreement on a long lease of 25 years in August 2011, work began to secure the funding needed and plan a hectic restoration project. It has been a labour of love and at present, phases 1-3 are complete; this is including the porch, the kitchen and toilets and she is ideally looking at a Summer completion, lets hope it all goes to plan!
