With a programme that’s featured everything from Eddie Izzard to The Supremes and Barbara Dickson to Rob Brydon, The Grand Pavilion punches above its weight when it comes to bringing the very best live theatre and music to this small seaside town. Alongside its professional programme is an extensive range of participatory activities including the legendary Tea Dances and a very popular programme of art classes. It also plays host to one of the country’s leading youth arts companies, Bridgend Youth Theatre and of course, presents an amazing spectacle each year with its annual Christmas pantomime. 

When we’re not busy entertaining through our own programme, we’re proud to play host to a great number of local choirs, drama groups and schools. We also offer a versatile and unique venue choice for conferences, weddings and a whole host of private functions. All this complemented by a café-bar with panoramic south facing views across the Bristol Channel which hosts its own series of free events including Jazz Sudays and Lunchtime Classics.
