The Tabernacle was converted in the mid-1980s from a Wesleyan chapel into a centre for the performing arts. The Auditorium of Y Tabernacle has perfect acoustics and pitch-pine pews to seat 350 people. It is ideal for chamber and choral music, drama, lectures and conferences. A fine Steinway grand piano has been purchased. Translation booths, recording facilities and a cinema-screen have been installed; the oak-beamed Foyer has a bar; and extensive access for the disabled has been made possible by a lift.
The centre can be hired for performances, rehearsals and gatherings. Ty Llyfnant houses music teaching rooms and an art studio while the Green Room doubles as a lecture room where Lifelong Learning classes are held. Superb self-catering accommodation for up to four people can be found at walking distance in the New Barn within Royal House.
