The Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama has submitted plans to Cardiff Council to redevelop part of its existing site on Cardiff's North Road to build a suite of world class training and performance facilities for musicians, actors, theatre designers and stage managers.
The Royal Welsh College is the National Conservatoire of Wales and a leading UK provider of high quality education, training and
performance in music and drama. This ambitious development will enable the College to significantly raise the quality and profile of its provision for Wales and the UK, and to attract the best international students to study in Cardiff.
The development will complement the College's existing high quality, small-scale performance and rehearsal facilities with an
acoustically excellent 450-capacity recital hall, a 160-seat theatre, purpose-built drama rehearsal spaces and a handsome new arcade to exhibit the College's award-winning design activity – a 21st century addition to Cardiff's historic city centre arcades.
Principal of the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama, Hilary Boulding said “These new facilities will allow us to offer our future
students the highest quality training environment and to bring their work to many more people.”
