Theatr Colwyn Conwy - it was more than 120 years ago that the venue now known as Theatr Colwyn first opened its doors to the public.
Back in the 1880s, it was then called a Public Hall – as the stone plaque at the top of the building still testifies – but it’s uses were many, just as they are today – a place of entertainment, for discussions, dances and fundraising events.
Time, taste and technology have all taken giant leaps since then, but the venue and its small group of staff, volunteers and supporters, led by manager Phil Batty, still operate at the very heart of the community, as those in charge of the venue did all those years ago.
Theatr Colwyn is a receiving theatre, seating 379 people (including wheelchair spaces) and hosts a wide variety of performances ranging from dance and drama to rock music concerts, Welsh language shows and a very popular Christmas pantomime.
It has a thriving cinema audience who enjoy not only the latest blockbuster releases on the big screen, but also independent, classic and foreign language films, courtesy of the Rialto Film Night.
The venue is available to hire (please contact Phil Batty for rates), as is the newly installed recording studio and rehearsal room. A bar selling alcohol and soft beverages is available before and during the interval at most live performances.
