REDHOUSE is a new arts complex situated in the Old Town Hall — a magnificent Grade II* listed building — in the heart of Merthyr Tydfil. REDHOUSE opened to the public on St. David's Day 2014, following an extensive £8M capital redevelopment programme supported by the Welsh Government, European Regional Development Fund, Heritage Lottery Fund & Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council in association with Miller Argent
Emerging in an environment which has suffered years of economic decline, REDHOUSE will become a catalyst for cultural regeneration: awakening the spirit of creative enterprise that was once a hallmark of a venerable town at the centre of the industrial revolution in Great Britain.
Monday to Saturday 8:30am — 5.30pm
These will be extended to cover performances and events

About The Redhouse Brand
The short animation below sets out some of the creative thinking behind the REDHOUSE brand and our attempts to harness the industrial and political story of Merthyr Tydfil in the Old Town Hall’s new guise as a flagship cultural and social enterprise.
WITNESS THE BEGINNINGS OF THE TRANSFORMATION
From 19th c. Magistrates Court, Holding Cells & Civic Centre to 21st c. Creative Industries Hub, REDHOUSE will provide a kaleidoscope of public arts facilities and opportunities: including a 120 seat theatre; a bespoke art gallery; dance studio; multi-purpose glazed auditorium; café bar; music/recording & creative business studios; and a wealth of heritage features and interpretation stories — as well as housing the media and performing arts faculties of the College Merthyr Tydfil.
