Andrew Lamont Gallery

The Andrew Lamont Gallery is a large, contemporary space in Theatr Brycheiniog, Brecon's centre for the arts in the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park.


The Gallery aims to showcase a diverse range of work from local, national and international artists. From 2018, a selection panel will be choosing exhibitions for their excellence, contemporary qualities and past credentials, with the aim to exhibit a broad range of work, ranging from established artists to those at the start of their career. Some exhibitions will feature work for sale, others will be part of community projects with which Theatr Brycheiniog is involved.


As of May 2018 The Andrew Lamont Gallery can offer you the opportunity to buy original works of art and craft through Collectorplan. This is an interest free credit loan scheme managed by Arts Council Wales for loans as small as £50 running to a maximum of £5,000. You need only pay a 10% deposit up front. Please enquire at the theatre box office about the scheme if you wish to purchase anything using Collectorplan. You can read more about the Collectorplan scheme here



The size of the gallery and hanging space allows for the display of large and contemporary works as well as for more traditional exhibitions. The gallery hosts an average of eight exhibitions a year, and it is situated on the second floor of the theatre, which is fully accessible by lift.
