Monmouth’s Rolls Hall (now housing the town’s library) was built in 1887 to commemorate the golden jubilee of Queen Victoria. It was a jubilee gift to the town by Lord Llangattock (J.A. Rolls), the father of Charles, one of the founders of Rolls-Royce. Portraits of Lord Llangattock, his wife and son hang in the main library.
A reminiscence session was held in the morning and staff gathered lots of memories and were able to copy a photograph of the first performance held in the Rolls Hall in 1888.
