Derelict land next to the Zion Chapel in Llanelli, Carmarthenshire, is set to be transformed under plans for the development of a new £14.6m cultural and creative centre.

The Works, which will boast a multi-purpose, 500-seat auditorium with an orchestra pit and a stage, is set to provide the town with an entertainment and cultural venue, as well as new skills and employment opportunities. Two Grade II-listed buildings - the chapel and the adjacent Old School - will be renovated alongside the new-build of The Works as part of plans, which are being led by Carmarthenshire County Council (CCC).

Workshops, an exhibition area, a café and social enterprise incubation and meeting rooms also form part of the proposals, which will provide a home for Trinity University College's [email protected] Works initiative. It is also anticipated that The Works will become the first Welsh theatre to offer wheelchair users access to the fly-tower, in order to create training and employment opportunities as lighting and backstage technicians.

The European Regional Development Fund is providing £5.1m towards the project along with £5.1m Targeted Match Funding through the Welsh Assembly Government. CCC and other key partners will contribute the remaining funds. Welsh First Minister Carwyn Jones said: "The Works will play a major role in the regeneration of Llanelli and the wider South West region, bringing new employment and training opportunities.

"It will reflect the unique heritage of the area, providing cultural and community activities to encourage greater social interaction and attract visitors who can also benefit from a rich programme of events."
