ABOUT THE REFURBISHMENT PROGRAMME
We are redeveloping quickly and recently benefited from the European Regional Development Fund via the WCVA Social Business Growth Fund, and this scheme has now been joined by the Arts Council of Wales through their capital programmes.
We are investing directly in the visitor experience at the Theatr and want to reinvigorate artistic engagement for audiences and the visitor experience for when people make a trip to the Theatr’s home at the Canal Basin in Brecon.
We are undertaking a significant capital project, investing at least £250,000, that will secure a design team to revolutionise the public spaces at Theatr Brycheiniog.
As part of this project, we’ll deliver a redesigned front of house that meets the expectations of modern audiences and visitors; these plans will include:
- A new café lounge for the ground floor, linking this space to the other areas on the canal side, creating a sustainable catering outlet
- A ticketing centre and shop instead of our box office in the old front of house desk area
- A remodelled and flexible bar area on the 1st floor
- A reimagined 2nd Floor activity space, that continues to engage visitors in the visual arts, but extends our ability to provide hire space, a further hospitality overflow that feels purposeful and a flexible dining location for the frequent sell-out shows.
