Grand Pavilion boosted by £18 million investment (Levelling Up Fund 2)

Redevelopment of the Grand Pavilion in Porthcawl has been boosted by £18 million of Levelling Up funding. The money will help save the building from further decline and ensure its long-term place in the community 

Saving the building

The Grade II listed building is a key part of the cultural and social heritage of Porthcawl and the wider region. Unfortunately, The Grand Pavilion has deteriorated in recent years and requires significant regeneration. The Levelling Up Fund will support its transformation.

Improvements to the building include:

  • ensuring the venue is fully accessible for visitors, staff and performers
  • ensuring the building is energy efficient
  • creation of a new 150 seat studio theatre
  • creation of a visual arts gallery
  • significant maintenance works

An important part of the community

The Grand Pavilion is at the heart of the community and a key destination for visitors.

These improvements will:

  • celebrate the Grand Pavilion’s iconic architecture by restoring it to its former glory
  • create opportunities for employment, volunteering and training
  • develop the venue as a centre of artistic excellence
