Update - August 19th, 2020

Aberystwyth Arts Centre, which has been closed since March due to Covid-19 restrictions, has been forced to delay its re-opening following flood damage caused by recent heavy rainfall.

Over the past several weeks staff at the Arts Centre had been preparing to reopen some facilities to the public, eagerly anticipating welcoming people back to the building, especially in advance of the new term at Aberystwyth University.

Unfortunately, the Arts Centre suffered considerable damage following the exceptionally heavy rain fall on Monday, 10 August.

The sheer volume of rain overwhelmed the drains in and around the building, with water flowing through parts of the building, including the box office area, the Great Hall foyer, and the bar area and Gallery 2 on the first floor. There is also damage to backstage areas and some of the balcony seating in the Great Hall.

Our original plans for a phased reopening from early September have been put on hold as we assess the damage. Needless to say, water damage can take some time to put right, not least because of the need to dry out the affected areas thoroughly before remedial work can begin.

The work required to repair the damage to the building has begun and will be on-going, while plans are put in place to adjust the opening of forthcoming creative learning classes and exhibition provision. We are extremely proud at Aberystwyth Arts Centre to provide an important focus for the arts in mid Wales, and we very much look forward to welcoming everyone back as soon as we can. Please keep an eye on our social media pages and our website for future updates.

To all our valued friends and supporters,

Aberystwyth Arts Centre will close to visitors from 6pm today (Tuesday 17 March) until further notice. The safety of audiences and staff is of paramount importance in making this decision. We will continue to follow guidance as to when we should recommence our programme.

Our Box Office team are contacting all ticket holders to arrange refunds and advise of rescheduled dates, but please be patient with us as there are many hundreds of people to contact. We will update our website and social media regularly, so please keep checking for the latest updates.

Thank you for your patience, understanding and cooperation. We send our best wishes to everyone in this difficult time and very much appreciate your support. Please stay safe and look after each other.
