The stage is set for business leaders in North Wales to go behind the scenes at one of the UKs leading theatres.

Theatr Clwyd opens doors for behind the scenes tour with the IoD


Mold-based Theatr Clwyd will host an Institute of Directors (IoD) North Wales event, where guests will be able to network and learn about the artistic hub.  

The theatre, which is one of Wales’ major drama-producing companies, works with the local community, schools, and colleges to provide all with an experience of the arts.

In the past 12 months, more than 200,000 people saw a Theatr Clwyd-produced show in the UK, and ticket sales made £1.6 million.

The tour will take delegates front and back stage, including a viewing of the 570-seater Anthony Hopkins auditorium, named after the Oscar-winning, Wales-born actor.

Theatr Clwyd artistic director Tamara Harvey will then deliver a talk on the theatre’s plans to develop its in-house production, work more closely with the community, and create new art spaces in the community.

And attendees can take in a show after the event, with tickets to comedy ‘whodunit’ play The 39 Steps available at a 10 per cent discount when quoting ‘IoD’ upon booking.

The behind-the-scenes event, which is free to IoD members and non-members, takes place on Wednesday 19 September from 5pm to 7:15pm.

Helen Watson, IoD North Wales Ambassador and board member of Theatr Clwyd said: “We can’t wait to tour this fantastic theatre and find out about the plans it has to stay at the forefront of the industry.

“Tamara has overseen a number of successful projects since her arrival, including turning an old Mold pub into a 1920s mansion for a production of the Great Gatsby.

“Delegates will be able to take inspiration from the theatre’s creative approach to business for their own organisations, and network with like-minded business people.”
