Saundersfoot harbour in Pembrokeshire, which has been operating since 1954, is set to become a major marine destination after opening The National Events Deck, a 20,000 sq ft multi-purpose decking area.
The National Events Deck is due to open this month and will be used as an events space at Saundersfoot Harbour for up to 4,000 people. The space will include an amphitheatre that can be used for local and national-scale events, ranging from theatrical and musical performances to food and craft festivals.
The National Events Deck marks the beginning of the second phase of the ongoing multi-million regeneration project of the Wales International Coastal Centre, which is due to complete in March 2020.
To celebrate the completion of the National Events Deck, the harbour will host an inaugural event, which will be open to the public, on 15 September 2018, including live performance of popular sea-themed movie scores by the Cardiff Philharmonic Orchestra, coinciding with the Year of the Sea.
The first phase of the project saw new outside mooring and racking facilities, redevelopment of a pontoon and enhanced disabled access to the area.
Saundersfoot is a pretty little fishing village with some excellent restaurants including The Stone Crab on the harbour, The Mulberry and, of course, the fabulous Coast round in the next bay.
Bradley Davies, Commercial Manager of Saundersfoot Harbour, said: “We’ve seen a huge increase in footfall to the area since the completion of the project’s first phase, so we look forward to bringing something completely new and different to visitors and locals alike.
