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!
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.
