What is it?

Conwy Culture Centre is an innovative co-location project that will feature:

  • A new area library for Conwy, Deganwy and Llandudno Junction
  • A new home for Conwy Archive
  • An arts and heritage hub with interactive interpretation and historic collections on display
  • A programme of accredited training opportunities for all ages
  • Volunteer support and development opportunities for people all over the county


What stage is the project at?

The funding package for the project has now been finalised and planning permission is in place. Following a tender process Wynne Construction have been formally appointed and the Centre is currently scheduled to open in the Autumn of 2019.


What will it look like?

The design shows a contemporary single storey building offering stunning views towards Conwy Castle and Walls. The green roof will blend into Bodlondeb Park’s leafy surroundings and its landscaped grounds will feature an external reading court and garden.


What’s on offer?

The Centre will be a gateway to the story of Conwy, staffed by an experienced and friendly team. Visitors can browse the library and heritage collections, explore the exhibitions; research local history; or simply enjoy a coffee against the stunning backdrop of Conwy Castle.

From one-off arts and heritage taster sessions through to accredited volunteering for all ages, there will be lots of opportunities to take part. We will also take the project ‘on the road’ bringing exhibitions and activities to communities across Conwy County.
