Swansea University's Great Hall Auditorium Completed
25th January 2016
Following on from the public opening of Swansea University’s new Bay Campus in September 2015, the turn of the year has seen the completion of the fit out of the first floor of the Great Hall, which features an uninterrupted outlook across Swansea Bay.
Located at the centre of the new £450m Bay Campus, the iconic Great Hall features a state of the art Classical music concert auditorium with the capacity to host events for over 700 people.
Specialist designers were commissioned to ensure that the auditorium’s layout, technical and acoustic design met the high specification required to provide near perfect acoustic qualities. The variable acoustic system allows for modification of the room so that it is appropriate for both orchestral acoustic music and amplified events.
The auditorium is one of the largest of its size in South Wales in terms of the capacity it can house for high-class musical events.
