History

Built in the old building of an old tram depot, Grangetown tram depot was one of six in Cardiff and was the main depot which was the terminus for all trams coming to the west of the city, from 1902 to 1946 .The building was then used for the trolley bus service which was used in Cardiff until 1953. Following this, the building was then used as a maintenance workshop for Cardiff Council’s vehicles and then in 2002 and 2003, the building was proposed to be used as a site for an arts centre, as part of Cardiff’s bid to become European Capital of Culture in 2008. However, after Cardiff did not succeed in their bid, the arts centre was not used and it continued to be the council’s vehicle maintenance centre until 2013.  

 

While it was heavily negotiated what the building could be used for, the architects Ellis Williams Architects proposed building the 1000 capacity venue, which it is today. A popular haunt amongst students and locals alike, Tramshed always has an exciting schedule coming up with an array of different forms of live entertainment.
