Theatr Clwyd has launched an accessible shuttle service as a way to help audience members who may struggle to access their temporary site.

Their temporary ‘Theatre Village’, which consists of an outdoor theatre and temporary lounge area to the right of the venue, is in place during the refurbishments that are currently underway.

This is part of their long awaited £42 million redevelopment which is due to be completed by 2024.

The refurbishments are to address a leaking roof, poor disability access and safety issues at the Grade II-listed complex.

The redeveloped building will deliver a much-improved visitor experience within a greener, more efficient, welcoming accessible building.

New specialist facilities and sensory garden will provide fit-for-purpose spaces for health and wellbeing.

The building will use sustainable materials, air source heat pumps, harvested rainwater to flush toilets, and greenery on external walls for insulation and biodiversity.

In March The Welsh Government confirmed up to £22m in additional capital funding to support the redevelopment.

The theatre has launched the shuttle service in response to feedback generously given by visitors, Theatr Clwyd has invested in a full electric six-seater buggy.

The buggy will transport guests with access needs from the car park to the beautiful temporary foyer that now sits beside the Theatre.

In operation 90 minutes before and after each performance to support visitors who might otherwise find accessing the temporary site more challenging the service does not have to be pre-booked and is available on demand.

Theatr Clwyd’s Andrew Roberts said: “We are always looking for ways to enhance our customer experience and make our spaces as accessible as possible.

“The buggy is another step in making sure audiences can continue to enjoy the wonder of theatre”.

The buggy launched last at the opening performance of A Pretty Sh*tty Love which is currently on in Theatr Mix.
