About Theatr Brycheiniog
Theatr Brycheiniog, Brecon’s Centre for the Arts opened in April 1997, as the first wholly funded Lottery new build arts organisation in the UK. The Arts Centre is probably situated in one of the most picturesque locations of any venue in the UK. Built alongside the canal basin in the heart of Brecon, serving the town and surrounding areas of Powys, Monmouthshire and beyond, it is rooted firmly in the community it serves. The venue currently provides a varied programme of theatre, dance, music and entertainment in its purpose built 477 seat auditorium and 120-seat studio/rehearsal space. It also hosts an exhibition programme in the Gallery.
The Arts Centre serves not only its community through an outstanding programme of quality professional English and Welsh language productions. It is home to the Brecon Baroque Festival and Brecon Jazz Futures, which both attract audiences and visitors nationally and internationally. The Gallery exhibits local, national and international artists, with spaces for hire for community and commercial use and our Waterfront Bar serves a varied Taste of Wales menu, of locally sourced and produced snacks.
