About the competition

Wow Overmonnow photo competition and exhibition are part of the celebrations for the re-opening of  Tŷ Price Community Hall in St Thomas' Square.

After many months of redevelopment, the old St Thomas' Hall is re-opening with a new name: Tŷ Price, St Thomas’ Community Hall. The name change is to reflect the hall's future use as a facility for the whole community. The name comes from the Welsh for house, "tŷ", and the Revd Norman Price a much-loved former vicar of Overmonnow.
