An arts venue with modern conference facilities in a beautiful and historic setting...

A unique blend of the traditional and the ultra modern, The Met (as it is known locally) has stood at the heart of the community of Abertillery for over 100 years. Originally known as the Metropole Theatre and Dance Hall, it has had a significant role in the history of Abertillery since it's construction in 1892, and has always been recognised as a hub in the cultural life of the community.

The Met is recognised as the centre for cultural events, activities and performances in Abertillery, as well as operating as a successful conference and meeting venue.
