The Great Hall

The Great Hall is Cardiff Union's largest venue with a capacity of 1500 and can be accessed from the entrance on Senghennydd Road. One of the oldest Live Music venues in Cardiff, The Great Hall has played host to some of the biggest acts in the world.  

Y Plas

As a live music venue Y Plas has a capacity of 1000 or 1200. It can be accessed via the steps at the front of the Union on Park Place. It is also where our clubnights take place with the addition of two other rooms. Y Plas has one large bar in the main room, a smaller bar on the mezzanine balcony and two bars in the other adjoining rooms. There is also a cloakroom in the back room.

The Taf

Open 7 days a week, the Taf is the first stop (or last) for any night out or perfect for grabbing a cheeky drink between lectures. The Taf offers a full menu of pub food during the day and filling platters at night to share with your friends.

Accessibility Information

We operate a bookable balcony for all shows, however it is purely on a first come, first served basis due to capacity limitations. It is often the case that we are unable to facilitate requests made on the night, but we will always aim to do what we can. Due to capacity restrictions we can only reserve spaces for 1 user and 1 carer - if your requirements surpass this please let us know. 

We can offer a complimentary carer ticket when requested in advance. You will need to provide proof of purchase of an advance ticket in order to request a carer ticket. These tickets are subject to availability and capacity.
