Covid-19 Update

We have fully reopened!

In response to the recent announcement by the Welsh Government the following changes will be implemented at the Pontardawe Arts Centre:

From Monday 9th of August our doors will be open to the general public during box office hours (currently 11am – 2pm Monday to Friday).

We will still ask that you sign in upon entering the building in order to gather the pre-requisite track, trace and protect information.

However, any queries made at the box office reception desk will be exempt from this as long as you refrain from going further into the building.

Mask wearing is still a condition upon entry to the building (unless you are exempt) and members of staff will continue to wear them for the foreseeable future.

Please bear in mind that the above is subject to change dependent upon subsequent Government guidance.

Our box office is currently operating on reduced hours, but if you have any questions please contact our box office (01792 863722 or Pontardawe.boxoffice@npt.gov.uk) to leave us a message.

Missing Audience Survey

It has been wonderful to be able to welcome lots of you back to the Arts Centre since we reopened in August. However, we know that after the last 18 months, some of you don’t feel ready to return to cultural experiences yet or just haven’t had the chance since things reopened. 

We’re interested to understand any concerns you may have so that we can make sure we’re reaching all those who used to attend, and rebuild our audiences and visitor numbers over the next few months.

We have worked with our partners Indigo, Baker Richards and One Further to develop a short survey which we would be very grateful if you could complete.

We want to hear from you if you haven’t yet returned to a cultural event or venue since Covid – but also if you have been attending but just haven’t been back to see us yet. The survey should take around 10 minutes to complete.

Your responses are anonymous – they will be used to inform our own planning as well as being added to responses from all over the UK to help produce a national picture. Our partners will only have access to your responses for analysis and will not be able to see any of your personal information.

Thank you for your help and we hope to welcome you back again soon.
