The Development & Regeneration Scrutiny Panel Members have received a tour of the Arena, and the surrounding landscaped area. Members visited in small groups to take a closer look at the continued progress being made on site. Officers explained that the design of the site will help to better link the City Centre with the waterfront. Councillors were interested to hear about the multi-functional space designed to accommodate smaller events as well as larger shows.  Members heard that the 3,500-capacity Arena aims to stage 160 performances a year across comedy, theatre, live music and gaming, attracting over 230,000 visitors per year.

Councillors were also shown inside the new pavilion restaurant and walked across the new bridge. Senior officers for Physical Regeneration led the tour of the site, ahead of handover to the Ambassador Theatre Group.

Panel Members were grateful to staff at Buckingham Group Contractors and Swansea Council for facilitating this tour.
