Award-winning Aberystwyth Arts Centre

January 2019

Located on Aberystwyth University’s Penglais Campus with views along the coastline of Cardigan Bay, the Aberystwyth Arts Centre is Wales’ largest arts centre and is recognised as a national flagship.

The award-winning enterprise has a wide-ranging artistic programme and houses a theatre, concert hall, studio and cinema, as well as gallery space, cafes, bars and shops.

Originally opening as a concert hall in 1970, the building expanded in 1972 to house the theatre – Theatr y Werin – which translates as ‘theatre of the people’.

The theatre has 311 seats and showcases both professional and community productions. The programme includes a range of theatre, dance, opera, comedy, musicals and family events, with a family show at Christmas, and a traditional pantomime.

The team in charge of the most recent renovation at the theatre chose Ferco’s market-leading Primera Beaufort.

Designed to complement modern theatres and auditorium, the Beaufort has clean lines and a contemporary aesthetic.

Theatr y Werin took advantage of its customisable features and chose a wooden back with reveal, matching wooden aisle ends and wooden armrests teamed with a plush red velour fabric.
