Swansea Central is a core element of the transformation of Swansea city centre. Phase 1 is seen as a major catalyst for future development and is centered on a new iconic, digitally advanced live entertainment venue and conference centre that can accommodate up to 3,500 people and stage major international travelling productions. The venue will be set in the first urban park created since Victorian times and linked to the city centre via a new dramatic pedestrian bridge. Fundamental to the masterplan is to enhance the connectivity of the city core to the outstanding Swansea Bay.

Ambassador Theatre Group has been secured to operate the venue. Construction of phase 1 will commence mid 2019. Ancillary uses include new apartments and new public parking facilities.
