Cardiff Bay Arts Centre

The new Arts Centre will be a high quality multi-purpose building providing facilities not yet available in the proximity and therefore o¬ffering the public a wider range of entertainment in the developing area. The new building will be located in Cardi¬ff Bay, on the plot available between the KPMG building and the Atradius building on Britannia Quay. The centre will spread the dynamic feel already perceptible in the waterfront area to the side facing Roath Basin, until now used mainly as office location.

Facilities incorporated in the building include a small theatre designed for small school performances, dance rooms, music room, two exhibition areas, a cafe’ serving also small meals and refreshments, two areas designated to teaching and a small installation workshop. All rooms are provided with high sound insulating glass as they will all be ‘open’ to the public dwelling in other spaces and could cause considerable noise levels.
