Award winning Aberystwyth Arts Centre is Wales’ largest arts centre and recognised as a 'national flagship for the arts'. It has a wide-ranging artistic programme, both producing and presenting, across all art forms including drama, dance, music, visual arts, applied arts, film, new media, and community arts and is recognised as a national centre for arts development.
We welcome over 750,000 visitors a year, including over 100,000 attendances for performing arts and events featuring local, national and international work, 236,000 for exhibitions and over 100,000 for our unique community arts and education programme.
In 2000 the Arts Centre completed a major £4.3 million redevelopment. In 2009 it undertook an additional £1.75 million development which added an artists and creative industries studios complex, and acts as the base for a major artists in residence programme. This gives Aberystwyth Arts Centre a range of facilities unrivalled throughout much of the UK.
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.
