Oriel Colwyn

Oriel Colwyn is the photographic gallery located above Theatr Colwyn. The Trust applied on the gallery’s behalf to the North Wales Police fund ‘Your Community, Your Choice’ and was awarded £2,909.89 towards the cost of setting up a dark room at the gallery, for use by students, community groups and professional photographers. The dark room was chosen to receive the money after it was put to public vote.
