Standing majestically overlooking the high street, Pontio is Bangor University’s brand new arts and innovation centre.
The Grimshaw-designed building is home to a flexible mid-scale theatre 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.
Pontio offers an eclectic mix of entertainment seven days a week, from the latest film releases to music and drama, gigs, contemporary circus and aerial theatre, cabaret shows and more. . It also offers food and drink at Bar Ffynnon, Gorad restaurant, food kiosk Copa and Cegin café.
But the arts and entertainment don’t stop there, just across the road in Storiel, our museum and art gallery. Wonder down the high street and you will find occasional cinemas, gig nights and poetry evenings, dance schools and host of other offers to keep the cultural juices flowing.
