Grand Theatre

Swansea Grand Theatre is located on Singleton Street in the heart of the city of Swansea, Wales. This performing arts venue stages a host of plays, pantomimes, operas, stand-up performances and offerings from touring companies.

Even if you’re not particularly interested in the performing arts, the rich history of the Grand Theatre and its flamboyant architectural style mark it out as well worth a visit. The theatre was opened on 26 July 1897 by the then extremely famous opera diva, Madame Adelina Patti. During its early years it played host to touring companies from around the world and some of the most famous names of the day. Stars to tread its boards during this period included Ivor Novello, Forbes Robertson, Jesse Matthews and Sir Henry Irving.

After a period of neglect during the 60s and 70s, the Grand Theatre underwent a multimillion pound refurbishment between 1983 and 1987. The result was a 1,000-seat auditorium with traditional proscenium arch and, in 1999, the addition of a new Arts Wing.

The Arts Wing boasts two exhibition spaces, a rooftop café and bar and a performance space that plays host to a huge range of performances and shows. Whether you want to relax over a snack in the café, book a ticket for the international stars who appear on the main stage, or take in a comedy night, a burlesque show or some contemporary lunchtime theatre in the Arts Wing, the Grand Theatre is bound to have something you’ll want to see.
