Event listings

The people of Mid Wales are a friendly and gregarious lot. We know how lucky we are to live here and we don’t want to keep it to ourselves. We want to share the joy. So we like to put on events, lots of them...and they do seem to have caught on.

 

The Hay Festival, for example, and the Royal Welsh Show Green Man Festival, Brecon Jazz Festival and Machynlleth Comedy Festival. The sort of events that people organise their year around. Like the Wales Rally GB or the Tour of Britain cycle race, to which Mid Wales devotes its fastest forest tracks and most spectacular ascents. Because there’s no point doing things by halves. Whatever you like to do, whenever you want to come, you’ll find an event that does it your way.

 

 Indoor events and outdoor events, adventurous events and agricultural events, arty and crafty events, foodie events and quirky events (bog snorkelling a speciality). Better narrow it down a bit.

The Magic Flute - Mid Wales Opera Theatre Hafren

Mozart's The Magic Flute owes more than a nodding debt to the art of pantomime, a surreal world of heroes and villains, myth and magic : high drama, high art, high notes and high camp mix in a blaze of colour, comedy and puppetry as we enter the ever inventive battleground of Mozart's imagination where the forces of good pursue victory over the evil Queen of the night.
