“Good Venue Great Location”
Review of Venue Cymru

Reviewed March 26, 2013

First time we have been to the Venue Cymru, to see a play on national tour. Booking was easy, parking cheap and plenty of spaces. Couldn't get a meal at the restaurant because of "staff shortages" but had nice soup and sandwich and drink in the cafe/bar. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The play was well staged and good fun, but we found the seats a bit uncomfortable and quite restricted legroom on our row (Row O) Bit of a bun-fight getting out of the car park but altogether a good night out. Would definitely return. Llandudno is a great place for a break and take in a show at the Venue.

Many a great shows have been seen here, a Ken Dodd show once going on until 12.45 am, and then a long drive home. The restaurant is also good

Came to see WNO do Madame Butterfly and loved it. We had great seats on the front row and all the staff were very friendly and helpful.

Outstanding 5 Star opera by Welsh National Opera. The Cunning Little Vixen by Janacek on 14th March 2013 was given great , involving performances by the whole cast of singers and dancers , orchestra and great imaginative production. The opera demands and got great versatile acting and singing. 5 Stars for the Welsh National Opera Company. As a THEATRE. the Venue Cymru overall is just average. About 20 years old, seating about 1400 people. It has good sight lines in all positions, except ( like anywhere else) the upper rear circle and at front of balcony where the rails intrude. Our seats in stalls were good, if rather firm. Staff good and welcoming. Disabled access generally good Acoustic was good on this occasion. The design of this theatre is not ideal you have long rather narrow corridors to your seating in the main stalls. AIR conditioning is very chilly ( though not noisy) when switched on. Something they have not sorted over the years. You might need a coat. PARKING is FREE on ROADS after 4 pm. (Check notices in case of seasonal variations). Many roads to park on easily, which is what we and all locals always do. WATCH OUT if you think about parking in the carpark . You will be charged or FINED if you miss the notices. We really think if you are paying for the show (Some tickets can be £40 or more each), any theatre goer should get refund on car parking charges. The Theatre should sort this out.. we dont care if it is managed by a separate company, it is the theatre`s responsibility to sort this out .
