Details

The Albert Hall is a period Victorian theatre in Llandrindod Wells in Powys, Wales. Originally built as a church hall in 1896, it became a theatre in 1922, with the addition of an art-deco foyer. The exterior of the building, foyer and auditorium remain to this day much as they were then.

The town bought the theatre as a community space in 1961. It was Grade II listed in 1985.

The theatre is currently managed by a small committee: Albert Hall Management Committee. It consists of volunteers and members of local organisations.

There are many users of the Albert Hall, including: local amateur dramatic groups, Young Farmers clubs, local performers, clubs, schools, touring productions, and shows.

But the Albert Hall is a community space. Anyone can hire it for their own performance or show. Whilst it is mainly used for theatre productions, it can also accommodate: concerts, eisteddfods, film shows, ceremonies, conferences (theatre-style), and meetings.

As well as the auditorium and balcony, there is a small meeting room downstairs. Known as the Lesser Hall, this room is available for small parties, rehearsals or meetings. It is also used as a dressing room space for productions with a large cast.
