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.

I'm afraid I was not happy with my visit to Brecon theatre. I took my grandmother to a Jane Austen lecture. She went in to confirm her online order and receive her tickets. When I joined her I found that she was waiting in a queue as the only person on the desk was on the phone, he did not... More

Hi Charlotte, I am very sorry to hear that your visit to us wasn’t as enjoyable as it could have been. We are working to ensure there are a couple of people on Box Office when there are shows/ events taking place to help with the smooth collection of tickets and a shorter waiting time. Unfortunately the event you attended... More

Can eat here before the theatre or otherwise, although limited opening times. Based on a tapas/small plates to share idea, but plenty of food on the plates and VERY tasty, a really nice change. The theatre itself is a gem, with great access and view points wherever you are seated.

The theater does lovely food and you can eat it inside or out. There is a lovely walk along the canal and you can watch some great shows.

One of the best views for a meal in Beacon, with an outdoor terrace for nice weather. Inside the theatre building.

Lovely meal at Tipple and Tiffin within the theatre, followed by an evening of fun and awesome Eagles music by the live Tallon band. Entertaining evening in an airy spacious theatre. Always a good night here with a varied programme.

Came here to a concert recently and have to say it is a lovely place. Centrally situated, with lots of parking nearby. There is a small bar / coffee shop on site. Staff at the theatre very very helpful and friendly. An absolute little gem

I'm writing this because I can't seem to find an email address to send it directly to the theatre! We went to a concert by calan last night. I had rung for tickets a few weeks ago and asked for seats with good access as I use a mobility scooter. I was told that there were no reserved seats, but... More

I am local so a little biast. I have seen some great professional performances, but also proud of the local theatrical groups who work hard to bring some memorable perfomances It's not the biggest of theaters but works well for the community and being situated on the Brecon canal bash it attracts many visitors

Visited for the pantomime Red Riding Hood which was brilliant. They have a lift and lots of leg room in rows B & C on the first floor. Good parking, friendly staff and always clean and tidy.
