Review on Food only
Dec 2019 • Family
Food service was appalling- it was really quiet there but the service couldn’t have been slower. Stood at the counter for 10 minutes with only one person in front of me.
Ordered a sandwich and two salads - the salads were fit for the bin - and that’s where they probably ended up as we certainly didn’t risk eating much of them. Cucumber was well past it’s date. Coleslaw was tasteless! Tomatoes were the cheap salad ones - again tasteless.
Learnt a lesson - will never eat there again !

Eating before a film
Dec 2019 • Couples
Taliesin serves food on performance nights- I went with my husband to see a film and planned to have some food before. Arrived 1 hour before the film and most dishes were sold out. My husband got a variation of his third choice and my order was forgotten altogether!
Avoid it on a busy day!!

One of my favourite places
Nov 2019 • Friends
I do enjoy coming here. The programme of events and cinema is excellent. Something to suit many. From jazz concerts to dance to live screenings of ballet and opera. Plus a good selection of foreign language films. Such a pleasant atmosphere where one can have a drink or coffee and a snack beforehand. The drawback is that for popular films/events, you need to book as soon as the programme comes out.

Intimate venue with some great entertainment on offer.
Feb 2017 • Friends
Have been a few times for films, live concerts, Science Festival events in 2016, and have just booked tickets to see a lovely Welsh band called Calan there again next month. The venue is great, nicely laid out, good acoustics and comfortable seating. The bar area is a nice place to chill out or chat to friends before a performance.

An attractive and modern venue ..if you can find it?
Mar 2017 • Solo
This is an attractive and welcoming theatre with nice cafeteria.I saw an excellent flamenco show, so they provided nice tapas beforehand. The place is very difficult to find baring in mind the sat.nav. post code they give you appears non existent to my very up to date machine. Don't rely on local signage to get you to the university - that is non existent as well. Fortunately I did have some local knowledge of where it might be but Swansea has a tortuous road system. If you are not sure set off early, but once there it is a good experience. Access to the disabled is not great I would have thought with lots of stairs to get there once you have found it.

Affordable Culture
Mar 2017
Taliesin offers a diverse programme of movies, live screenings, live performance and exhibitions. The live screenings, from the very best venues in the UK, are made available to us on our own doorstep without costly and time consuming travel. I have also seen some fantastic live music and dance performances at this venue. The range of high quality films offers an eclectic mix of productions, something for everyone, and opportunities to see movies which are not mainstream and might otherwise be missed.

Love this place!
Mar 2017 • Couples
I've heard people complain that Taliesin doesn't show a lot of blockbusters but what you have to remember is that it's an Art Centre, not a chain cinema. I like that they show an eclectic mix of artsy film and international movies as well as their live theatre performances. They also have started offering some very yummy vegan and gluten free cakes in the cafe. Always recommend this place to folks.

Taliesan is great - their sister theatre Great Hall abysmal
Feb 2017 • Couples
We are patrons of Taliesan Theatre and have always had a good experience there. However, their sister Theatre The Great Hall at Swansea Bay Campus was very disappointing. We saw Clare Teal there - who we have seen many times at Taliesan, and the acoustics at Great Hall was so bad we left at half time. Many others also complained about the acoustics. Disappointing evening.

Good atmosphere, good selection of films
Nov 2016 • Couples
The taliesin is a small cinema/theatre that shows various films sometimes not found in the chains at the same time. Parking is ok on the university grounds tho you often have to pay. There is a restaurant and bar which serves a fairly limited range of food and drinks.

Lovely Little Theatre
Oct 2016 • Couples
Visited Taliesin Arts Centre to see Aakash Odedra performing Inked and Murmur, during the Swansea International Festival. This is a lovely small theatre in a beautiful location. It has a nice bar and cafe area and parking is free in the evenings.
If i was local i would return on a regular basis.
