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.
Llanvihangel Court is a Grade 1 listed 16th century manor house and a loved family home. Set in 100 acres of formal gardens and meadow land it is a place of unusual beauty.
King Arthur's Labyrinth
Found deep beneath the mountains of Southern Snowdonia in the village of Corris, King Arthur's Labyrinth is one of the most mysterious visitor attractions in Mid Wales.
Ynyshir nature reserve
Ynys-hir mixes Welsh oak woodland with wet grassland and saltmarshes.
In the spring, the ground is carpeted in flowers, and birdsong fills the air. You might see flycatchers and redstarts emerging from the nestboxes.
