About Us

The Savoy Theatre & Cinema is operated by The Monmouth Savoy Trust

Registered Charity No.1136359

The aims and objectives are to manage and maintain the theatre as the premiere entertaintment venue for Monmouth & surrounding areas.

The Savoy is privately owned by the MacTaggart family. Grandfather B.T Davies was a collector of cinemas and at one stage owned nineteen around the South West and South Wales. The Savoy is the only one left in the family’s ownership. They lease the building to the Monmouth Savoy Trust which comprises a group of local enthusiasts who have come together to run, maintain and programme the building.

Although the Savoy has predominately been used as a cinema for the last hundred years, it was clearly built as a theatre and therefore the new Trust believe that there should be a healthy mix of films and live entertainment.

The Trust is always looking for more volunteers to help with publicity, marketing, front of house and other essential day to day jobs, so if you feel that you have the time and the interest please contact the Trust through our contact page.

The present members of the Monmouth Savoy Charitable Trust are:

Danny Antebi (Chair), Stephanie Harris, Barbara Spence, Liz Gardiner, Dave Andrews, Stewart Greenwell, Jane Harvey and Lin Waters.

The Savoy Trust employs four permanent staff:

Chris Ryde: Director of the Trust & General Manager

Mike Harrold: Cinema Manager / Projectionist.

Paul Halpin: Technical Manager / Website / Projectionist.

Georgina Peace: Box Office
