LLANGAIN & DISTRICT MEMORIAL HALL was built in 1963 at a cost of £7,000 (just over £100,000 in today’s money in 2018), on land donated by Mr Tom Roberts of Penycoed (Farm). The architect was Berwyn Thomas & Partners of Cardiff and the builder was D.Geo Lewis & Son of Priory Street, Carmarthen.
The hall was officially opened on Friday, 3 April, 1964. The unveiling of the memorial plaque containing the names of those who died in both World Wars was performed by Mrs May Davies, sister to Lce-Cpl Willie Davies of Green Castle who died of wounds received 23 March, 1918, aged 20.
The building was recently extended and refurbished to include access for the disabled thanks to a grant from the National Lotteries Charity Board and other benefactors. In addition the Hall has a sound system grant-aided by NLCB. An extension has been built to store equipment for the Llangain Youth Club, and a new stage lighting system has been installed, thanks to grant assistance from Carmarthenshire County Council and the Arts Council of Wales respectively.
