The King’s Hall, a landmark building in Aberystwyth from its official opening in 1934 to its demolition in 1989, is seen here (exterior only) in its heyday, when it provided amusements and dodgems downstairs and a concert/dance hall upstairs where The Rolling Stones, Paul Tortelier, Led Zeppelin, the Halle Orchestra and Slade all came to play. It started life as the Municipal Hall or Pavilion but from 1937 onwards was known as the King’s Hall.
