    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Llantrisant Guildhall Restoration Project is more than just the refurbishment of one of the town’s oldest landmark buildings. It is a major investment in Llantisant by creating a heritage and visitors’ centre which will help drive further economic benefits to this unique hilltop town by telling the remarkable story of a 1,500 year-old community.

    For more than six years Llantrisant Town Trust have worked tirelessly to breathe new life into this beautiful building which was a centre of power for almost 700 years.

    Llantrisant Guildhall will tell a remarkable story. Famous for its Freemen and the role their “Black Army” played in the Battle of Crecy, Llantrisant played a pivotal role in the revolts of the Welsh against the early Norman overlords. Llantrisant Castle was an overnight prison for King Edward II while the eccentric Dr William Price’s actions in the town led to the passing of the Cremation Act in the UK.

    The new visitors’ centre will house state-of-the-art exhibition space, research and IT suite for genealogy studies, interactive exhibitions to, historic artefacts, documentation and photographs. With a rolling programme of events, workshops and exhibitions, the Guildhall will also provide a location for weddings, a varied guest speaker programme and landmark events while its neighbouring Castle Green will become a new focus for community activities. The project will help bring more visitors into Rhondda Cynon Taf while also providing a first-class facility for people in the area.

    The two-storey Guildhall is capable of permanently housing the solid silver 1633 Town Mace , the Loving Cup, copies of the 1424 Charter, the bound Freemans Rolls along with a large archive of local history. This fine building will provide education facilities for schoolchildren and act as a resource for family historians.

    With the exterior work almost completed, we now need to raise a further £200,00 to complete the internal fit out and additional works. Please help!
