If you like Live Music and Comedy then you should definitely check out the newly refurbished Art Deco Neon Venue in Newport.

The old Odeon Cinema in Newport, which has been derelict for many years has recently been refurbished as an Entertainment and Events Venue in Newport and with it’s 3,500 capacity it is now one of the largest Entertainment & Events venues in South Wales.

In keeping with tradition with the roots of the historic building the venue still has a Cinema room and this will be available for public and private screenings and their are also some meeting rooms available for hire and functions but the main purpose of the restored grade 2 listed building is as an Entertainment and Events venue.

As the venue is just 5 minutes walk from both the train station in Newport and the new Friars Walk development the Neon is looking to join with some of the many other new entertainment & nightlife businesses in Newport, to help revive the old historic night and entertainment seen. 

With its 3,500 capacity the venue should quickly* become a go to destination venue for live music and comedy in Newport, as well as the South Wales region in general.

*With some of the comedy & music acts that the Neon in Newport have lined up for February and beyond this should happen soon than later.
