Carmarthenshire County Council has successfully delivered an innovative and forward-thinking theatre and arts centre in the heart of Llanelli’s regenerated cultural quarter. Working within budget, and with significant community benefits, the theatre was the first to be built west of Cardiff in 25 years, and presented considerable challenges – notwithstanding the public reaction who held great affection for the former theatre building.
Through innovation and sustainable project delivery, the theatre building has won hearts and minds. It has been accepted and become loved by townsfolk, and the building itself has become a local landmark. It’s enduring design and environmental features makes it one of the most exciting buildings in Carmarthenshire, and indeed west Wales.
