A Statement on behalf of the Theatr Gwynedd Management Board     

A Statement on behalf of the Theatr Gwynedd Management Board The Theatr Gwynedd Ltd company will come to an end on 31 October 2008, on the day that the Theatr’s home, owned by Bangor University, will close its doors for the last time.

Janet Roberts, Chairman of the Theatr Gwynedd Management Board, said, “In the face of the difficult economic environment, with the increased financial pressures on local government, and on the arts in general, the Theatr Gwynedd Management Board has decided, after detailed and serious discussion, that the only option was to bring the Theatr’s activities to an end.

“The last day will be a sad day for the Theatr’s staff, the members of the present Management Board, and everyone who has been involved with Theatr Gwynedd over the years. I would like to thank those who have financed us, The Arts Council of Wales, Gwynedd Council, Isle of Anglesey County Council and Bangor City Council, for their support which has enabled us to offer a varied, high quality programme until the end of October this year. Our last season will include a number of not- to- be-missed productions, including the new musical, Llyfr Mawr y Plant, based on the iconic children’s book, which is a co-production with Theatr Bara Caws and Galeri.”

Dafydd Thomas, Theatr Gwynedd Director, said, “I would like to thank the staff, who will all unfortunately be losing their jobs, for their dedication and loyalty, and indeed everyone who has contributed to Theatr Gwynedd’s success over the years. I hope that theatre in the city of Bangor and surrounding area will flourish in the future, and that the exciting plans being discussed by Bangor University to create a high quality arts centre in the city will bear fruit.”
