Llandudno venue to get £3m refit

8 October 2018

VENUE CYMRU in Llandudno is to benefit from a £3 million refurbishment, funded by Conwy Council, the European Union and Welsh Government.

It is expected to involve the removal of walls in the entrance foyer, new ground-floor “curtain glazing” and entrance doors.

Work on the building will start this month and is scheduled to be completed next summer.

Venue Cymru houses three concert spaces Arena (cap. 2,500 standing), theatre (1,456) and 900-capacity The Hall. All performance spaces can accommodate a range of show formats.

A Conwy Council spokesperson says the investment will be primarily spent on improvements to infrastructure and enhancing the customer experience.

“Venue Cymru is a multi-functional organisation, and in addition to being a receiving house, it is a very busy conference and events centre attracting clients from the UK and internationally,” says the spokesperson.

Concerts at the venue are overseen by artistic programmer Emma Joyce, with upcoming shows featuring Enter Shikari, Ruby Turner and Caro Emerald.
