Llanwrtyd & District Heritage and Arts Centre

The centre is an interactive history of the town and it's surroundings which includes information panels, interactive maps and recorded memories of residents and visitors to the town. The centre is housed in a sympathetically restored congregational chapel which is easily accessible by wheelchair or to those with limited mobility. A disabled toilet is available within the building and a lift provides access to most parts of the centres' exhibition space.


Impelo is a charitable organisation that seeks to share the transformational power of dance as far and wide as possible, connecting people of all ages and ways of life in joyful expression.
