Swansea Palace Theatre in the News

Our refurbishment and adaptation of the historic Palace Theatre in Swansea has been featured on ITV and BBC news. The Grade-II listed Palace Theatre in Swansea has been empty since it closed as a nightclub in 2006 and on the Theatres Trust risk register due to its deteriorating condition. In 2016, Swansea council part-funded urgent repairs, before buying it in 2020 to turn into office space. The BBC reports:

The Theatres Trust – an advisory body which safeguards theatres across the UK – said while its “preferred outcome” would be for the building to be used for live performances, “it has been evident that there is not the demand in the city to make another theatre viable”.

“This is a much better outcome than allowing the building to sit empty and risk severe deterioration and potential structural decay,” it said. The project is being funded by the European Regional Development Fund, the Welsh government and Swansea council.
