Theatr Clwyd

Theatr Clwyd runs William Aston Hall.

Theatr Clwyd is Wales’ largest producing theatre and our aim is to make the world a happier place one moment at a time. We do this through transporting people with stories on our stages and by putting the community at the heart of our work – whether that’s at our Flintshire home or in Wrexham at William Aston Hall.

Theatr Clwyd was built in 1976 to provide cultural opportunities for people living in North Wales. Our stages have been graced by Anthony Hopkins, Vanessa Redgrave, Timothy Dalton and Owen Teale among others and in 2018 we were proud to win an Olivier Award for Home, I’m Darling which starred Katherine Parkinson and Richard Harrington.

We are now led by Artistic Director, Tamara Harvey, and Executive Director, Liam Evans-Ford, and deliver a huge amount of work in our building to support people living in our communities. We work with our local health board and health charities to use the arts to support people’s mental and physical health and develop bespoke projects which support some of the most marginalised people in our communities.

Theatr Clwyd is currently going through a major redevelopment, taking our much-loved but incredibly-dated building and ensuring that it is fit-for-purpose to sustain the organisation for the next fifty years of its life. The redevelopment will be complete in 2024, but the theatre will remain open throughout.
