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.

The Plough Chapel
Located on Lion Street near the centre of Brecon, The Plough is described as having “one of the finest of the grand chapel interiors … a triumph of the carpenter’s art” (T. J. Hughes: Wales’s Best One Hundred Churches). It also has an excellent acoustic for chamber music. While The Plough had one of the earliest independent chapel congregations in mid-Wales, dating back to 1699, the present chapel was built in 1841.
