A new arts venue opens in Llanelli on Friday - the first of its kind to be built west of Cardiff in more than 25 years.

Ffwrnes is a £16m development and will host its first event this evening - a performance of the pantomime, Aladdin.

Theatre manager Carwyn Matera-Rogers spoke to Bethan Rhys Roberts on BBC Radio Wales.
