Bryn Williams said: “I am thrilled to be returning home to my native Wales, to work in partnership with Theatr Clwyd, an organisation I have known and loved since being a child growing up locally. I can’t wait to share my culinary passion for our distinct and dynamic region and its produce with my community."


Theatr Clwyd is currently undergoing a major capital redevelopment project which will reimagine the theatre’s public spaces and create a greener, more efficient and sustainable building where world-class art can thrive and social action is rooted for generations to come. 

Liam Evans-Ford, Theatr Clwyd’s Executive Director said: “We are deeply excited to be working in partnership with Bryn on our food and drink offer at Theatr Clwyd - including restaurants, bars, and in all our event and retail spaces.

"We always aim to work with people who are world class at what they do, who share our values, and who have strong links to our locality. Bryn delivers on all these, and we look forward to working with him to make Theatr Clwyd known as a food and drink destination, as well a venue for world-class culture and communities work.”

The new restaurant will open in 2025 in Theatr Clwyd’s building following completion of the vital redevelopment project.
