The Green Rooms is South Wales’ loudest best-kept secret. This grassroots venue is located at Treforest Industrial Estate, was established in 2009. Current Managing Director Jonny Foxhall has been running it since 2018.
This music venue is unique because it is the only place in South Wales that can offer rehearsal space to stage in the same facility. The Green Rooms offers creative spaces, stage hire, affordable venue hire, a licensed bar, and free parking on the doorstep. Add a friendly face in Jonny, who is always happy to help, making this MetalTalk Venue very special.
The Green Rooms has beaten the odds stacked against it. It has endured a flood, a pandemic, monstrous rental inflation, and a near explosion more recently in the area. But thanks to the sacrifices and dedication of Jonny, his team, and some help from the community, much like a true Metalhead, the venue is still here, fighting for what it stands for.
The Green Rooms’ mantra will always be that it is the home for original, grassroots bands and artists.
2024 is TGR’s fifteenth anniversary, and after everything she has been through, Johnny and his team are making sure this year is her big reawakening. The phoenix is rising from the ashes.
The Green Rooms has hosted South Wales Metal 2 The Masses for four years, showing its vital Metal background. Support grassroots venues. They are vital to the future of music.
