Daring to be different, the Ffwrnes is a new creative and cultural centre for the performing arts, media & community events. It comprises of a state-of-the-art auditorium, specially designed to accommodate a broad range of performances, film screenings, conferences and cabarets, live gigs, “eisteddfodau” or even a traditional Twmpath Dawns or Tea Dance! With an audience capacity of up to 500 and 650 for unseated events, the space can be rearranged to accommodate a number of different seating formats as required. With excellent access facilities for people with disabilities, a centrally located box office and a spacious foyer coupled with modern backstage facilities, the Ffwrnes is one of the best equipped and energy efficient theatres of its kind.
An important additional feature of the Ffwrnes is a cultural & social enterprise centre. Canolfan Sbarc provides accommodation and project partnerships for organisations and practitioners who recognise and promote the performing arts & media as effective tools for social change. As one of Theatrau Sir Gâr’s strategic partners, the University of Wales Trinity St David’s also has a strong presence at the Ffwrnes which clearly symbolises the close links between the community, the cultural sector and Higher & Further Education establishments in the area.
