The wait to see the newly refurbished Sherman Cymru building in Cardiff is nearly over and visitors to Wales will be able to see the changes for themselves when the two auditorium venue is open to the public for the first time on Saturday 4 February and the Sherman Cymru team welcomes back audiences to their home for Open House. Why not pop along for a great day out on a rainy day.

Sherman Cymru closed its doors in February 2010 for a major refurbishment that includes a new exterior, totally redesigned foyer space, public areas and access. There are also improvements to rehearsal rooms and backstage areas, new seating for Theatre 1, enhanced electrics and ventilation and a dedicated room for new work and new writing.

The architect for the project is Jonathan Adams from Capita Symonds. Adams also designed the iconic Wales Millennium Centre and WJEC buildings.

Since the closure Sherman Cymru has remained in touch with its audiences by taking productions to other venues but will now have the opportunity of creating drama and taking quality touring productions and events back in their own venue with the opportunities and advantages that the refurbished spaces will bring.

The Open House Day will be the public’s first chance to see Sherman Cymru when it opens its doors at 9.45am on Saturday 4 February. Daytime activities will run until 5pm.
