The New Theatre
With a history stretching back over a hundred years, the New Theatre is one of Cardiff's most culturally important institutions. The grand theatre hosts great touring productions year-round making it a focal point of the Cardiff arts scene. The New Theatre is only a few doors down from the Parc Hotel, putting excellent theatre within a few steps.
