We are looking for volunteers in every street. Can you help your self-isolating neighbours with shopping and collecting medicines? And just being there for a friendly chat?

Now is the time for the Rhondda’s community spirit to come alive. Please - get involved.

If you are fit and healthy, you can register as a volunteer here (tick to receive e mails so we can keep you up to date) -


Sign up to the GELLI & YSTRAD group on Facebook here:


Occasionally we will shout out in this group to ask for a volunteer to help someone who has asked for it.

For the scheme to work, we need at least one person taking charge of their street. All you need now is access to a printer to print off enough forms to put out in your street. And you are ready to go!

Who wants to get involved?

The Rhondda need you ✊

Those on the tour to Berlin may remember
Ystrad Rhondda RFC were the 1st rugby team to cross over and play a team in Eastern Germany..what a game & trip that was. Mr Murphy I got another great photo album of this tour I'll pop it in.

Double Or Nothing - Live Showreel 03/10/2021

Double Or Nothing - Live Showreel

It was a pleasure to mix this band for the first time and also one of the very bands who all use my in-ear monitors. What a great bunch to work with. As usual, better if you listen through headphones and HD settings on Youtube. Enjoy.

Double Or Nothing - Live Showreel D.O.N. are a dynamic four-piece covers band from South Wales. They bring you two sets of songs that differ from the usual cover bands repertoire. Highly reco...


Happy Staff 😁

Jason Dale - Live Elvis Showreel 02/10/2021

Jason Dale - Live Elvis Showreel

And here it is, tag and share away folks. Thank you to Jason Dale and Julie Pomeroy and all who came out for another fantastic night at the club! It is a must to listen through headphones for that full sound immersion and to set Youtube settings to HD. Enjoy

Jason Dale - Live Elvis Showreel Recorded at Ystrad Rhondda RFC on Friday 1st October 2021. Jason is an accomplished tribute to the late, great, king of Rock N Roll, Elvis Presley. Jason als...


A taster of last night before Elvis (Jason Dale) performed. The audio is of Jason. Full video to follow at some stage today. Don't forget tonight, we have a first time band, Double Or Nothing, FREE entry

[09/30/21]   If your a tribute band, who's guitarist happens to look like Slash, then good luck when large venues and theatres book you for the fee you told them, as tickets sales will and should cover the 'top of the food chain' in bands costs. However, dont expect to ask a small 120 max venue to pay the same as a 500 to 1,000 seater or standing venue on a one size fits all fee as ticket sales wont cover the cost. Cut your cloth, even if one of your band menbers does look like Freddie. You're just a covers band that plays one bands songs all night plus VAT. A mere observation and not a rant. 😁

Shaken & Stirred - Live Showreel 26/09/2021

Shaken & Stirred - Live Showreel

Another legendary day and night at the club, Shaken & Stirred were brilliant. Enjoy!

Shaken & Stirred - Live Showreel A showreel of Shaken & Stirred, who are an accomplished trio of musicians, that play a fantastic 2 sets of popular songs. Check them out for your venue.

Rocking the look, fair play

[09/10/21]   If you are picking up tickets for any event, you need to pay, 2 years ago was a nightmare with the amount of IOU slips I had to go through. Hope you understand. πŸ‘β€

[09/07/21]   Tickets are in for Devious 11th December Β£5.00. Boxing Night, Mr Hate Β£5.00 and NYD Β£8.00 for The Big Guy and The Strip Lights. You will note prices have not gone up and we are one of the least expensive venues if not thee least expensive for that time of year for entertainment. Don't leave buying them until the last minute (you know who you are) the last minute brigade. This year once sold out thats it, no favours. ❀🀘

Rachel Stephens - Showreel - Live at Ystrad Rhondda RFC

Last night was a quiet night at the club because of warm weather, bank holiday, caravans, festivals and of course saving money for today, however, Rachel entertained those who did come out with an amazing performance. Enjoy.

Our Story

The branding will belong to Ystrad Rhondda Rugby Club. All people are welcome at our venue, there is no exclusiveness as we try to set ourselves apart from the rest.

Bands that wish to play this venue, please bear in mind that under our licence there is a STRICT restriction on the use of external PA systems used by bands because of non controllable dB levels by the manager/licencee. This will be reviewed by RCT in future providing we have no complaints about noise pollution. This was strictly enforced by the HSO at RCT, a copy of which can be seen on request, this was due to complaints from some neighbours in the past.

However, you will be pleased to know that we have an in-house dedicated band PA system with a very experienced sound man who will mic up vocals, drums, back-line amps, line out for keyboards, click and backing tracks, any other instrument is catered for. We have FOH set up of 2 JBL PRX800 3 way active tops lopped to 2 Mackie 2 wayβ€˜15" speakers. Behringer X32 digital desk with 18 ins and 8 sends. We have seven stage monitors if needed plus the use of Sennheiser top of the range in-ear monitors, 12 ceiling speakers around the venue plugged into desk. Shure mics, AKG clip on mics, overhead mics, DI boxes, mic stands, lights, lasers and haze machine. This in house PA service is NOT optional but compulsory as we wish to keep our licence, so if we book you or you request to book a gig, bear this in mind. If you read all the reviews from bands you will see that we have a great sound and set up notwithstanding that we know the sound acoustics of the venue better than gigging bands.

We have a discretionary budget for cover bands and anything over Β£250 has to go through the committee as we are a free to enter venue and do not charge our patrons. Tribute bands we will have now and again and because of their hierarchy of fees in the food chain, they will have to be approved and ticket only if approved. Bands always get a very good welcome from the promoter and club. These are the terms and can be updated once certain restrictions are removed, so please don't insist on bringing your own.

Please enjoy the venue and respect us and our neighbours as we aim to make your experience a good one. Feedback is always welcome.
