About our Venue

The Albert Hall is a beautiful Victorian theatre in Llandrindod Wells. Originally built as a church hall, 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: The 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
 commercial touring productions and tribute bands.

The committee is keen to host interesting and varied productions and events, at the venue. The committee has put on multiple events in recent years:
– Bingo’s
– Children’s Productions (The Addams Family Young@Part)
– Musical Revues (All Together Now! & Here We Go Again!)
– Murder Mysteries
– Christmas Productions (Jesus, Mary and Joseph & Scrooge!)
– Quizzes
– Christmas Singalongs
– Talent Nights
– Musicals (The Addams Family, and Little Shop of Horrors)

In early 2023, The Albert Hall went back to it’s 1923 roots (learn more on our History page) and relaunched a Cinema. The Albert Hall Accessible Cinema is designed to provide relaxed film screenings, that are affordable, and have a comfortable sound level, with the lights kept on low.

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:
 film shows
– ceremonies,
– conferences (theatre-style) and
– meetings.

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

The Albert Hall is a registered charity (charity number 524464). Our income is derived from hire fees and fund-raising. We rely on the support of our community, users and volunteers to keep the theatre open and up to date. The management committee put on regular fundraising events throughout the year.

We also have an Albert Hall group of friends – AhFriends. They also contribute to the fundraising efforts of the committee. Learn more about the Ah Friends.
