What is Chapter?

We’re a hub for the production and presentation of world-class, inventive and compelling work. Our gallery commissions and produces exhibitions of the very best in national and international art. Our theatre spaces are a platform for experimental and thought-provoking plays, dance, music, live art plus so much more. Our cinemas offer independent and challenging films alongside a range of unique festivals and events, and we bring more films, to more people, in more places through Film Hub Wales.

Alongside our core programme, we’re also home to more than 50 artists and creative companies who are based in our studios. From award-winning animators and film production companies to artists, designers and photographers, and bespoke art framers, print and recording studios, our creative community are at the heart of everything we do.

Our programme and community come together in our award-winning caffi bar that seats around 120 people and is a great place to meet up with friends, find a quiet spot to work away from home, or tuck in to our freshly prepared, locally sourced food and drink.

Outdoors, we’re proud to work with Canton Community Gardeners who nurture our green spaces and share their knowledge through outreach work with schools and our local communities. They also look after our beautiful bees!

Many people visit us to attend the range of exciting classes, workshops and events that are brought to you by different local businesses every day. Try your hand at printmaking, Lindy Hop, Tae Kwando, ballet, tap, music for babies, youth orchestra and so much more, in the inclusive atmosphere of our relaxed venue. We also offer a range of unique, low-cost spaces for hire if you’re looking for an unusual film location, accessible venue for a conference or meeting, or somewhere to celebrate a special occasion.

Everyone’s welcome! Croeso i bawb!
