Muni Arts Centre in Pontypridd 'bursting with life' being on at-risk register

15th October 2015

Claire Appleby, Architecture Adviser for The Theatres Trust has been quoted in Wales Online.

The Theatres Trust, established to promote the protection of theatres within the United Kingdom, has recently published a list of public cultural buildings that are at risk of being closed – including the Muni.

However, The Muni Working Group (...) has taken issue with being included on the register, arguing that the iconic Pontypridd venue, closed last year in council cuts, has never been more alive.

In response, Claire Appleby, Architecture Adviser for The Theatres Trust, said: “The Muni Arts Centre was first included in the Theatre Buildings at Risk Register in 2014 due to the approved closure by Rhondda Cynon Taf Council.

“It was considered prudent to include the building on the 2015 register, which was published on September 17, until such time as future sustainable operation of the theatre can be ensured.

“We are pleased that the building has reopened its doors through the hard work of the Muni Working Group which is aiming to create a heart for the community where residents are able to watch live performance and engage with arts and culture.”
