Split over six levels, Pontio is Bangor University’s new arts and innovation centre that opened in 2015 – this new building is part of the regeneration of Bangor’s city centre. Pontio offers an eclectic mix of entertainment seven days a week, from the latest film releases and independent films to music and drama, gigs, contemporary circus and aerial theatre, cabaret shows and more.

The Grimshaw-designed building in the centre of Bangor is home to a flexible mid-scale theatre (450seats) named after the world-famous bass-baritone Bryn Terfel, a studio theatre which holds up to 120 people, a  200-seater digital cinema, a cutting-edge Innovation Centre and a wide range of facilities for students, including a new home for the Students’ Union and numerous learning and teaching spaces.
