Evening event at the Coal Exchange – Tuesday 12 September
Tuesday evening will see a reception hosted at the historic Coal Exchange. Commissioned in 1884 and completed in 1886 by the Cardiff Exchange and Office Company Ltd., the main purpose of this building was to provide a dedicated location for merchants and traders to sell coal. It comprises a large central Trading Hall with suites and offices located off the balcony, and played an important role in the 19th century as the largest coal exchange in the world, where coal owners, ship owners and their agents met daily on the floor of the trading hall.
It was estimated that up to 10,000 people would pass through the building each day and at one time the price of coal the world over was determined here. The trading floor was the where the first ever £1,000,000 deal was agreed.
