Aberystwyth Arts Centre
The award winning Aberystwyth Arts Centre is the largest and busiest arts centre in Wales, with a wide-ranging programme of events and activities across all art forms. It is recognised as a national centre for arts development. It welcomes over 650,000 visitors a year through our doors, including over 98,000 attendances to the unique community arts and education programme.
The Arts Centre is a department of Aberystwyth University, and sits at the heart of the university's campus, with stunning views over the town of Aberystwyth and along the coastline of Cardigan Bay.
In 2000 the Arts Centre completed a major £4.3 million redevelopment project which was largely funded by the National Lottery. With facilities unrivalled throughout much of the UK, it is recognised as a 'national flagship for the arts'.
