Theatr Brycheiniog

Theatr Brycheiniog is a great focus for the town of Brecon, containing an extremely adaptable stage space, and comfortable seating within the auditorium. It holds a good-sized audience, but offers an intimate atmosphere, and you are never too far away from the action on stage!

Theatr Brycheiniog auditorium

The theatre has a pleasant bar area where you may obtain drinks before and after the concerts, and also during the interval where you may pre-book your drinks. There is also an art gallery, where you can browse various exhibitions, many of which feature local talented artists. The theatre has a very pleasant aspect being positioned right on the canal basin, and it is possible to book boat trips on the canal. Also within the theatre complex is the Waterfront Bistro.

Brecon Cathedral originally started life as a Benedictine priory in 1093, and at the dissolution of the monasteries in 1537 became Brecon’s parish church. It only becoming a Cathedral in 1923 with the establishment of the Diocese of Swansea and Brecon. The Cathedral provides an atmospheric setting, particularly for choral concerts.
