Road changes for epic Swansea theatre production

A bold theatrical production will mean changes for access to - and parking on - a small number of Swansea roads from this week.

NowTheHero

Now the Hero is a promenade performance between Swansea Bay and the Brangwyn Hall. Performers and ticket buyers will be standing or walking for much of the time.

There will also be the outdoor setting up of apparatus for the September 25-29 event, part of 14-18 NOW, an arts programme for the First World War centenary. There will be additional activity away from the main Brangwyn performances.

Created by Swansea-born artist Marc Rees, It is the headline piece for the 2018 Swansea International Festival.

The roads affected are Victoria Avenue, Guildhall Road South, St Helens Road.

The temporary measures are:

Roads closed

  • Victoria Avenue. Entire length - Sept 20, 10am-9pm; Sept 22, 9am-2pm; Sept 24-29, 4-9pm.
  • Guildhall Road South. Between the junctions with Francis Street and St Helens Road. Sept 24-29, 7-9pm.
  • St Helens Road. Between the junctions with Rodney Street and Oystermouth Road. Sept 24-29, 6.30-9pm.

No parking

  • Victoria Avenue. Entire length - Sept 20, 10am-9pm; Sept 22, 9am-2pm; Sept 24-29, 4-9pm.

There is increased activity now both inside and outside the Guildhall and Brangwyn Hall as elements of the show are built.

The Guildhall's Rotunda car park, at the front of the building, now has slightly reduced capacity to facilitate the installation of temporary lighting structures.

From September 24-29 the Rotunda car park will be closed to all vehicles from 6-10pm every evening. Any vehicles parked there during the day must be moved to an alternative location by 6pm each evening.
