About The Venue.
The Welfare is an arts and community centre situated in the Swansea Valley. A versatile venue offering conference and private hire facilities as well as popular entertainment.
We provide live music from around the globe, live theatre performances, regular cinema, live streamings of opera, ballet and theatre from the National Theatre London, The Royal Opera House and The Royal Shakespeare Company, specialist film screenings and weekly community events. We also play host to a range of community and voluntary groups.
Audio induction loop (hearing loop) and audio description equipment are available for cinema screenings. Please ask at the box office.
The whole of the ground floor is wheel chair accessible but unfortunately our meeting room (Herman Room) on the second floor is only accessible via a flight of stairs.
If you would like to familiarise yourself with the building before attending an event please contact the box office to arrange a guided tour.
Please inform a member of staff if you have any particular requirements and we will be happy to help!
