Entertainment in Brecon Beacons National Park

  • Entertainment in Hay-on-Wye (Y Gelli Gandryll)

    Globe at Hay

    Run by the Institute of Art and Ideas, the people behind Hay's HowTheLightGetsIn festival of philosophy and music, this converted Methodist chapel wears many hats: cafe (mains £12 to £14), bar, live-music venue, theatre, club and all-round community hub. It's a wonderfully intimate place to watch a band, catch a comedian or listen to a tub-thumping political debate.

  • Entertainment in Talgarth


    What happens when Creation Records boss Alan McGee, the man who unleashed Oasis on the world, decides to renovate an 1837 Baptist chapel in your little town? You get a gorgeous, intimate venue with a roster of top-league musicians dropping by to play. It only holds a hundred people, so check the website and book ahead.

    Brecon & District Male Choir

    For booming harmonies, head to the practice sessions of the local male choir; visitors are most welcome. Since its formation in 1937, the choir has performed at London's Royal Albert Hall 10 times and has even released its own CD.

    Coliseum Cinema

    Dating from 1925, the two-screen Coliseum is a wonderful combination of high-tech comfort – digital screening and Italian chairs – and glamorous vintage touches, with old-style usherettes, plush curtain drapes and deco doorhandles. In addition to its mainstream offerings, the local film society shows art-house films on the first Monday of the month.

    Theatr Brycheiniog

    This attractive canalside theatre complex is the town's main venue for drama, dance, comedy and music. It's worth checking what's on, as it sometimes hosts surprisingly big-name touring acts. The Brecon Jazz Club hosts a night here each month.
