Congratulations to all the winners at the A&B Cymru Awards 2019 which was held at the Wales Millenium Centre last week.

Celebrating Creativity and Excellence in Partnership – for over a quarter of a century, A&B Cymru have encouraged, acknowledged and celebrated exemplary and innovative partnerships between the private sector and the arts that benefit communities across the country. 

The team works across Wales with a range of arts professionals, from individual practitioners to flagship organisations, and the private sector from micro businesses through to multi national corporations.

A&B Cymru’s work has proven value in the current economic climate of Wales. The impact it has can be felt on children, people in the workplace, communities large and small.

A&B Cymru role is to support business and the arts to work together in truly mutual partnership, both become stronger with the results benefiting our society in far reaching and tangible ways.

Back in 2003 our first project with A&B Cymru was sponsoring a young artist named Shelly Hocknell to establish her art practice and a gallery in Betws-y-Coed.

Over the years we’ve mentored and worked with a host of organisations and individuals through the A&B Cymru programmes, including the Ruthin Craft Centre, Pontio– Arts & Innovation Centre, The National Writing Centre of Wales – Tŷ Newydd, and the Snowdonia Arts Festival. Our Business Development Manager was also a guest judge for the 2017 awards

Coming up in 2020 very excited about a new arts project in the hotel itself develpoed via A&B’s CultureStep programme … watch this space!
