Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama

In June 2011 the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama’s dream of having its own world-class performance and rehearsal spaces became a reality as it opened its doors to new £22.5 million facilities.

The college now welcomes thousands of public audiences from Cardiff and beyond to a programme of events featuring both performances by the students studying at the college and visiting theatre companies and musicians.
The new buildings incorporate:

The Dora Stoutzker Hall (up to 439 seating capacity)
Richard Burton Theatre (182 seating capacity)
Four state-of-the-art full-sized, double height rehearsal studios
The Linbury Gallery
Cafe bar and terrace overlooking the beautiful Grade I listed Bute Park

These new buildings complement and enhance the college’s existing facilities which include

The Bute Theatre (capacity 150 – 200)
The Caird Studio Theatre (flexible seating capacity)
Sir Geraint Evans Recital Room

plus the Anthony Hopkins Centre - an award-winning restoration of the former castle mews building, which opened in 1999. It houses:

Two modern recital galleries: the Weston Gallery and the Corus Recital Room
S4C Studio Theatre
Professional recording studio
Courtyard performance space
Music practice rooms
