Arts & culture



We’re a creative lot in Mid Wales. Well, we do live in very inspiring surroundings.


You won’t get far in our market towns before you stumble across a theatre, gallery or concert hall. We also host some of Britain’s best-loved arts events including Hay Literary Festival, Brecon Jazz and the Green Man Festival.


But it doesn’t all happen on the dates and in the places that you might expect. Things are far too spontaneous and surprising for that. You’re just as likely to hear music in the back room of a pub as on a festival stage.


And you don’t have to go to the usual sort of theatre if you fancy a bit of Shakespeare. We’ve grown one in living willow which, like so much of our Mid Wales culture, is completely unique.
