AUSTIN SMITH: LORD IT

  • Comment

The Arts Council of Wales is to give an award of £6.5 million to the Newport Theatre and Arts Centre at a wharf site on the River Usk. Work on the project (which has already received funds of £500,000 from the acw and the local council) will begin early next year, with completion planned for 2002. The centre is designed by Austin-Smith:Lord and will include a 500-seat theatre, a studio theatre, recording studios, workshop spaces and an art gallery. It should attract 70,000 visitors a year.
