The award winning Aberystwyth Arts Centre is Wales’ largest arts centre and recognised as a 'national flagship for the arts'. It has a wide-ranging artistic programme, both producing and presenting, across all art forms including drama, dance, music, visual arts, applied arts, film, new media, and community arts and is recognised as a national centre for arts development.

The main concert hall at the Arts Centre is called the Great Hall and it seats over 900 people. Built in 1970, it is a very adaptable space which can be used for events as varied as live bands, sympnomy orchestra concerts, and top stand-by comedy acts, as well as conferences and for the University's examinations and Graduation Ceremonies.

It is the main venue for concerts during the annual Musicfest - Aberystwyth International Music Festival.

The Great Hall's facilities are easily adapted for conferences, lectures, and trade fairs.

The Art's Centre is a department of Aberystwyth University, and sits at the heart of the university's campus, with stunning views over the town of Aberystwyth and along the coastline of Cardigan Bay.
