On 16 March 2020 we received the news that theatres across the UK had to close their doors due to the situation caused by Covid-19. To mark this milestone we are taking a moment to reflect on a year unlike any other and to extend our thanks for all the support we have received this year.

This year wasn’t the year we expected or wanted, but we knew we had to find new ways to continue entertaining our audiences, supporting Welsh / Wales-based artists, connecting with our communities and developing our young people. Our Annual Review tells the story of our work to do all of this throughout the year. You can read our Annual Review here.



Our work is full of heart, it’s all about feeling and meaning for the people of Cardiff.

We sit at the centre of this city, not just geographically but emotionally, artistically and as a community. We are our city, through and through. We are the heart of Cardiff.
