Council response to future of St David’s Hall

November 17, 2022 by

Cardiff Council response to Arts Scene Wales’ news story that St David’s Hall is about to be handed over to the organisation that runs Cardiff International Arena

The hall hosts a range of events including classical concerts, comedy, pop. the TV talent show BBC Cardiff Singer of the World and the Welsh Proms.

A spokesperson for the cash-strapped  council said: “Cardiff Council can confirm it has received a proposal from the Academy Music Group (AMG), regarding St David’s Hall. This proposal has no status and will be given consideration by the Council’s Cabinet at a future meeting.

“There is undeniably a need to secure investment into St David’s Hall, but safeguarding jobs at the venue and retaining its status as the National Concert Hall of Wales, with due access to Classical and Community groups would be an absolute imperative for the administration, under any proposal.”
