Theatr Ardudwy

Theatr Ardudwy in Harlech, Wales, has been confirmed as the first post war theatre building in Wales to be granted statutory listing.

This brutalist style theatre was built in 1973 as an arts centre attached to Coleg Harlech.

The college was listed Grade II* in 2001, though the theatre was largely omitted from the list description and was not considered to be part of the listing. Cadw have now reviewed that decision and confirmed that the theatre is already listed by virtue of its physical relationship and interconnection with the layout of the college buildings.

Cadw are currently updated the list description for the college to fully recognise the theatre building.
