History of Centre Cultural Sala Galà

From 1911 to1969: a dance hall
In 1910 Narcís Abellí i Dalmau, baker of Cassà de la Selva, bought three plots in Mel and Molí streets in order to build a dance hall. From 1911 to 1969 there were always dances.

From 1969: Sir Thoma’s
In 1963, Secundina Abellí i Bota, the owner of the building, sold it to Tomàs Grau i Balamaña. In the same year, the town voted in order to change the name Sala Galà into Sir Thoma’s. 1969 was the first year of the famous disco Sir Thoma’s.

From 1998: Centre Cultural Sala Galà
In 1998 the town hall of Cassà bought the building in order to transform it into the Centre Cultural Sala Galà (a cultural place). It was opened in 2003 and incorporated the library, the music school and the Josep Lloveras School of Art..
