The Aberconwy Centre opened to the west of the Arcadia theatre in 1982. The conference venue had space for over 1,000 conference attendees. It also featured squash courts, sun beds and badminton courts.

The Centre was redeveloped in 1994, and it was renamed the North Wales Theatre and Conference Centre. It hosted a 1,500-seat auditorium/theatre, as well as a 700 square metres (7,500 sq ft) conference hall with capacity for 800 seated, or 1,000 standing, people.

In July 2005 the Arcadia theatre was demolished to make way for an atrium and meeting and conference rooms adjoining with the North Wales Theatre and Conference Centre. The building was also extended to the west. After the redevelopment, the venue hosted a new 1,550 square metres (16,700 sq ft) arena, capable of hosting 1,800 seated, or 2,500 standing people, increasing the overall capacity of the venue to over 5,000 people. The western extension incorporated a café, restaurant and a box office, as well as office space.

Conwy’s Cabinet Member for Economic Development, Cllr Louise Emery added:
“We are delighted the Welsh Government has recognised the importance of this exciting project. Venue Cymru already contributes more than £33m per annum to the North Wales economy supporting hundreds of jobs. This development will help us build on this, further growing Conwy’s valuable business tourism and events offer.”


I appreciate the above, however it would be good to see VC make a profit or break even, rather than the one million plus loss per annum, especially as they quoted .........

mondie, I bought mine at the box office.

As a Premier Card holder, that way I also avoid the £3 admin charge.

I am there Monday evening and all day Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

A tip - take a cushion because those seats in the Arena become uncomfortable after a while.

You won’t miss me when I walk in with my cushion in a plastic bag.

Wow almost a year between posts on this thread! To top it all the post is for a gin festival not even a music act. What an absolute waste of space that arena is! I would say the people who run it couldn't organise a p!ss up in a brewery but clearly they can manage a p!ss up in a supposed music arena!

Major redevelopment works are underway at Venue Cymru.

The project, costing around £3million, is set to increase the flexibility of the conference spaces at the Llandudno venue making the facilities more appropriate for holding large national and international events.

While Hugo has been walking in the hills and enjoying the sunshine, I have spent the last couple of days inside Venue Cymru Arena watching the snooker currently being shownt live on ITV4 until Sunday’s Final.

All four sessions were virtually sold out.

Good publicity for Llandudno and a boost for local hotels and guest houses.  $good$

That must be a sign of a misspent youth Bri, but I'm pleased that you enjoyed the snooker      ;D

Must be the perfect night out for insomniacs! Mind you, hopefully you don't wake up with a stiff neck from an awkward sleeping position.
