organisers will be able to hold events in a Welsh Victorian-style village in
early 2010 after a recent £5m investment by the Nant Gwrtheyrn Trust.
Gwrtheyrn is a refurbished former quarrying village located in a 250-acre
valley overlooking its own private beach on the northern coast of the LlÅ·n
“The Nant, in its new form, will provide work for 32
local people within one of the most Welsh-speaking areas of Wales and an
area where job opportunities are scarce,” says chair of the Trust, Jeff
new conference facilities will be able to hold 350 delegates theatre-style and the
main space divides into several smaller meeting spaces.
There are also
further meeting rooms available including the Chapel Heritage Centre, which
holds up to 60 delegates theatre-style and the Plas Education Centre.
The investment plan has six phases and already £3.5m
worth of grants from the European Union and the Welsh Assembly Government were
secured before the Trust made a public appeal in March.
