Swansea Grand Theatre: a dramatic revival
Swansea Grand Theatre was designed by William Hope and opened in 1897 with an opera performance. It rapidly established itself as a prominent venue for touring theatre, opera and dance companies, and was graced by the likes of Sir Henry Irving. This was the establishment of a grand tradition that continues today, with the world-class events of Swansea Grand Theatre attracting audiences from far and wide. Yet in the 1960s the building was threatened with closure and was narrowly rescued by the local authorities - a move that was followed by extensive renovations and resulted in the theatre enjoying the enormous popularity it does today. With conference facilities, exhibition areas and a studio performance area, Swansea Grand Theatre has become an impressive arts venue and will thrill concert- or theatregoers with the beauty of its architecture and historic atmosphere. From opera to comedy, tribute bands to visiting orchestras, there are Swansea Grand Theatre tickets to suit all tastes and budgets.
