Aberystwyth Arts Centre has been awarded a grant of £237,920

The fund aims to support national and local theatres and art galleries through the latest issues caused by the pandemic – particularly over the last three months when the Omicron variant led to increased restrictions for venues.

Aberystwyth Arts Centre Director Dafydd Rhys said:

"We are very grateful to the Arts Council for their ongoing support of the Arts Centre throughout the pandemic.  Throughout the COVID-19 crisis, we have worked energetically to maintain key opportunities for public engagement because of our belief in the positive contribution made by creative and cultural activity to public confidence, and wellbeing. Since reopening last June we were so pleased to see audiences returning and enjoying being back in the building, working within COVID guidelines. Sadly Omicron delayed our recovery as we saw shows cancelled again, and in particular it was so sad that the Wardens' panto had to be postponed.   ACW’s support helps us continue to stay open and to begin welcoming audiences back again in the months ahead – and to ensure the show will go on!"

The Arts Centre is now looking forward to the return of live events and performances, and highlights over the next few months include the exhibition Milquetoast by Bedwyr Williams 23.02.22-18.04.22, Cân i Gymru 04.03.22, National Theatre Wales and Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru with August012 present Petula 22-23.03.22, National Dance Company Wales: One Another 07.03.22, The Shires 22.04.22, Saving Grace featuring Robert Plant and Suzi Dian 29.04.22, Al Lewis 07.05.22 and much more.
