Gwybodaeth

Untitled User
Blackwood Miners’ Institute (The ‘Stute) is a vibrant and professional theatre, and one of the busiest in the South Wales Valleys; it is also the only professional theatre in Caerphilly County Borough.

Originally the building opened as a snooker hall that was owned by the Coal Industry and the Social Welfare Organisation. The first stones were laid in 1925 and it was paid for out of the Oakdale Miners’ wages at 3d a week. Original events staged in the building included tea dances, snooker/billiards, reading groups, rehearsals and union meetings for local miners.

After falling into disrepair in the 1970’s-1980’s and following many of the local pit closures, the building was conveyed as a charitable trust in 1990 to Islwyn Council. It was refurbished and reopened in February 1992 as a community arts and entertainment venue thanks to funding from Islwyn Borough Council and the Welsh Office. The history alone gives the building a place at the heart of the community.

In 2011/2012 a total revamp of the Blackwood Miners’ Institute commenced, with Caerphilly County Borough Council's Cabinet approving a three year programme of repairs to give the theatre a new bill of health.

Today, The ‘Stute offers a wide range of events, including drama, dance, live music, opera, children’s literature and comedy, as well as providing a wide range of opportunities for people from all sectors of the community to take part in creative activities.
Blackwood Miners’ Institute is part of Caerphilly County Borough Council and has recently been awarded Arts Portfolio status by Arts Council Wales.
