In the shadows of Harlech Castle and backing onto the dunes Theatr Ardudwy (formerly Theatr Harlech) enjoys stunning views of the Snowdonia and Cardigan Bay. A fully accessible building, the theatre presented quality concerts, films and shows to suit all tastes with excellent acoustics and a 256 seat auditorium.
Theatr Ardudwy was built as an arts centre attached to Grade II* listed Coleg Harlech and in 2016 it was determined that the theatre itself should also be included in the listing. The theatre is a radical design with all elements of the building having a clear external expression, and is considered a fine example of refined Brutalism of the period.
February 2018: Both theatre and college are currently closed and the site up for sale. Cadw, in partnership with Snowdonia National Park Authority, has been working closely with Adult Learning Wales, the current owners of the site, to complete a Planning Guidance Note, which provides a planning framework to inform any future development.
Theatres Trust hopes to work with the future owner, Arts Council Wales and Gwynedd Council to find a viable long-term solution for the theatre.
