The Gate is housed in a 100 year old Grade II listed building. Formally the Plasnewydd Presbyterian Church, it is located in Keppoch Street in the Roath area of Cardiff.
The Gate centre was purchased in 2000 and underwent a four year redevelopment with the aid of £1.2M from the Heritage Lottery Fund, £1.2M from a private individual and £400,000 from the Welsh Assembly Government. After four years of planning and refurbishment under the guidance of architect Rob Cruwys, it opened its doors in September 2004.
It is now a modern, multi-functional arts centre with its architectural integrity completely preserved.
