Access Information:

Theatr Clwyd’s address is: Raikes Lane, Mold, CH7 1YA and it is set on top of a hill overlooking the beautiful market town of Mold. The complex is immediately adjacent to Shire Hall (the administrative offices of the Flintshire County Council) and forms part of the County Civic Centre at Mold (Yr Wyddgrug).

The roads surrounding the theatre have prominent brown and white signs making the theatre very easy to find.

If you are travelling by public transport there is a bus stop outside the theatre on the routes from Mold, Flint and Chester. The nearest train station are Flint (5 miles), Buckley (5 miles) and Chester (11 miles)

If you are driving from the North Wales coast, take the A55 towards Chester, then take the exit signed Flint and turn right towards Mold. Go through the villages of Northop and Sychdyn, and look for a well signposted right hand turn into the theatre.

If you are driving from Chester or North West England, take signs for North Wales and Conway. From the A55, filter left onto the A494 for Mold. As you approach the town, there are well signposted signs to the theatre on your right.

From other directions, go through Mold and take the A494 Queensferry road. The theatre is signposted on the left just after you leave the town.

There is a large undercover car park operated by Flintshire County Council at the front of the building with tunnel access direct to the theatre foyer. Please note that the tunnel entrance has steps. Please be aware that the outside part of the multi-storey car park is currently undergoing some works and therefore is unavailable for parking. Whilst these repair works are ongoing if you do find the covered part of the car park to be full please park in the adjacent tiered car park. Recently the council has introduced charges to use the car park however it is only 50p for a full day, 20p for 2 hours and is pay and display Monday to Saturday from 8am to 5pm.

Theatre Clwyd contains five auditoria: The Anthony Hopkins Theatre with 570 seats; The Emlyn Williams Theatre an adaptable studio space with up to 250 seats; Studio 2 which seats up to 120 people; The Clwyd Room – a multifunction area for up to 300 and a 120 seat Cinema.

The theatre’s bistro restaurant offers a delicious range of meals as well as pastas, soup, sandwiches, salads, cakes and hot & cold drinks. Opening times may change depending on show start times, and we’d recommend booking a table in advance on: 01352 701 533.

The Theatre Bar opens 1 hour before each performance, so if you arrive early you can enjoy a drink and visit the Gift shop or Galleries. Bar staff are also happy to take your interval order.

Theatr Clwyd (Welsh pronunciation: ) is a regional arts centre and producing theatre 1 mile (1.6 km) from Mold, Flintshire, in North East Wales. It opened as Theatr Clwyd in 1976, but was known between 1998 and 2015 as Clwyd Theatr Cymru, before reverting to its original name.

Theatr Clwyd opened in 1976. It forms part of the County Civic Centre at Mold (Yr Wyddgrug), being immediately adjacent to the County Hall (the administrative offices of the former administrative county of Clwyd, now the offices of the Flintshire County Council). It was built at the instigation of the former Flintshire County Council before that was abolished in the local government reorganisation of 1974 and replaced by Clwyd County Council.

The name of the complex was changed to Clwyd Theatr Cymru in 1998 to reflect the reorganisation of local government at that time which abolished Clwyd as a county and brought Flintshire back into existence, although defined by different borders from the original ones. However, in 2015 the complex reverted to its original name.

The complex was opened by Queen Elizabeth II under the artistic direction of George Roman. Toby Robertson was the theatre's artistic director between 1985 and 1992. Robertson introduced several leading actors, including Vanessa Redgrave, Sir Michael Hordern and Timothy Dalton, to the theatre. Robertson was succeeded as artistic director by Helena Kaut-Howson

Terry Hands as artistic director 1997 to 2015 raised the profile and status of the theatre greatly. Hands' productions of classic dramatists, principally Shakespeare, were critically acclaimed. He worked closely with Associate Directors Phillip Breen (directing classic and modern drama) and Kate Wasserberg (directing revivals of modern dramatists including Brian Friel, Terry Johnson, Arthur Miller and Arnold Wesker).

In 2014 Terry Hands directed a revival of "Under Milk Wood" to mark the centenary of the birth of Dylan Thomas. It was critically acclaimed, toured Wales and England to an audience of 44,000.

Hands' successor, Tamara Harvey, was appointed in June 2015. Notable productions included "Uncle Vanya", "Pavilion" and "Home, I'm Darling", a co-production with the National Theatre, which won an Olivier award and starred Katherine Parkinson and Richard Harrington. "Home, I'm Darling" transferred firstly to the National Theatre and then the West End and a UK tour.

Harvey was joined by Executive Director Liam Evans-Ford who together were instrumental in driving the venue's major capital redevelopment. Whilst major building work was taking place in the theatre's building a temporary "pop up" facility was built with foyer, "actor's village" and a temporary theatre called "The Mix".

In 2022 Theatr Clwyd took over the running of Wrexham's William Aston Hall, ensuring that the venue remained open and viable as a community resource.

In 2023 Kate Wasserberg became Theatr Clwyd's sixth Artistic Director, replacing Tamara Harvey who became joint Artistic Director (alongside Daniel Evans) at the Royal Shakespeare Company.

The complex contains five auditoria:
