Updates: Current Restrictions | September 2021

Hafren auditorium is closed to the public for the remainder of 2021. We appreciate that this will disappoint our customers, however, due to the Covid Pandemic, indoor venues must follow Welsh Government guidelines in terms of fresh air flow.

Public and staff safety will always be our priority here at Hafren.

Investment has been made into a state-of-the-art Air Handling Unit and new heating system. This investment of £250,000 by NPTC Group of Colleges will ensure that our customers will only breathe fresh air and be at a comfortable temperature while sat in our auditorium. With various issues, mainly contractor and new equipment availability / lead in times, this work is now due to start imminently, and won't be completed until the end of this year.

Our Box Office will reopen to public for face-to-face contact from Monday 4th October 2021. The new public opening times are as follows:

Day Opening Times

* If travelling in specifically to visit the Box Office, please double check that it is open. We hope that we won't see disruption, but Hafren staff are subject to Covid restrictions and should anyone have been identified as a direct Covid Contact and / or test positive, they will not be attending work. This may mean that we will be required to close at short notice.

A new telephone system is due to be installed by the end of October. Our current system is unable to take messages at the moment so please contact us during our opening hours with your enquiries.

This schedule of opening is in place until Friday 17th December 2021. A revised schedule will be made public after this advising about opening times in 2022. Our newly designed website is of course available and customers can secure tickets through this, in addition to calling into the Box Office. When visiting the Box Office, we ask that all visitors wear a mask, use the hand sanitiser provided and respect a social distance between each other. As the Box Office is located by the main doors, this remains the easy point of Entry and Exit. Please be advised that College students have returned to site, and if you wish to use the toilets there is a possibility of having to queue.

Hafren is delighted that it is able to reopen its newly refurbished Conference Suite. Covid secure improvements include new furniture and flooring, along with enhanced cleaning protocols. We have also invested in new refreshment machines which offer a wider selection of drinks than were previously available, and are easy to use. If you are interested in booking this facility for a meeting from 5, up to 50 people, please email to discuss your requirements further.

We will be posting updates on the refurbishment work as it progresses, please keep an eye on our Website and Social Media. We can't wait to welcome you all back in 2022, we've really missed you! The 2022 programme will contain lots of exciting surprises, watch this space.
