Know your theatre:
Wales’ largest producing theatre opened in 1976 next to County Hall, in a complex
opened by the Queen. The theatre has a proud history of major productions with
star international names. Theatr Clwyd productions are seen throughout the year both in Wales and on UK tours.
Appointed as artistic director in 2023 Kate Wasserberg, formerly artistic director of new-writing company Stockroom and Cardiff's The Other Room, is overseeing an ambitious, £35m redevelopment project to create a large extension at the front, including a new three-storey foyer and restaurant, bar and cafe.
The building has three performing spaces and a multi-purpose function room, and though the redevelopment will massively upgrade facilities, the theatre spaces won't be changed.
The main Anthony Hopkins Theatre is a single-raked tier seating up to 569, with
five wheelchair spaces. The Emlyn Williams Theatre is a flexible studio space for 147-250. Studio 2, built to TV broadcast standards, can hold up to 120 for performance events and is used as a second rehearsal space. The theatre also
has a small cinema (capacity 113) and a large function room used for gigs
