Test events go down a storm at the Arena

Test Events are bringing fantastic feedback: The Copr Bay Arena opened it’s doors on Friday and Saturday to the public who were invited to help test the venue ahead of formal opening later in March. Those arriving were able to experience, for the first time, the new bridge crossing Oystermouth Road and then the pure ‘magic’ of the LED light display which cloaks the building. Inside the WOW factor continued within the foyer, a triple height space which is defined by the glittering, gold, feature ceiling and sweeping spiral stair which connects the different levels.
Local bands took to the stage and brought a taste of what is to come for Swansea, as an enthusiastic audience were treated to the amazing sound system and could stand in awe of the full splendour that is the 3,500 capacity auditorium. An amazing team effort from all concerned to get to this pivotal moment !

City & County of Swansea are developing Copr Bay and it is part-funded by the £1.3bn Swansea Bay City Deal. The new bridge over Oystermouth Road is part-funded by the Welsh Government through the Active Travel initiative.
