With breathtaking views over the city centre and Cardiff Bay, it really does have the wow factor. The Theatre provides the perfect setting for a theatrical performance or conference, while the Cinema is ideal for video screenings. With studios available for recording and performing, a boardroom with video conferencing facilities and plenty of general meeting rooms – there are plenty of spaces available to suit any event.

The main reception space is a versatile area where registration, catering and exhibitions can take place.
