The Grand Pavilion was opened in 1932 and is well known for its octagonal dome and striking frontage on the Porthcawl seafront. Originally intended as a Palm Court for hosting tea dances, balls and civic functions, the Pavilion is a multifunctional venue, hosting a wide variety of events throughout the year including live theatre, concerts, ballroom dancing, conferences, dances, and culminating in the ever-popular Christmas pantomime.
The Grand Pavilion is also a versatile and unique conference venue, hosting many corporate and charity conferences and meetings, and is a popular location for civil wedding ceremonies, receptions and parties. Visitors to the Grand Pavilion’s café bar enjoy panoramic south facing views across the Bristol Channel.
The café bar hosts its own series of events including jazz, literary talks and an art forum. The Grand Pavilion is run by a team dedicated to making your visit a memorable one.
