LIVE music, stand-up and cinema fans in Powys can rejoice after Builth Wells’ Wyeside Arts Centre announced it is reopening later this year.

Wyeside are excited to announce they’re reopening on Friday, August 6. They will be provisionally opening their doors three days a week over the summer, on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Wyeside will be showing two films a week, one for adults and one for families. They are currently in the process of finalising their schedule which will be announced online in the coming weeks.

To keep the public safe, Wyeside will only be taking advanced bookings, so customers will need to plan ahead for their cinema trips.

Wyeside will also have a wide variety of live shows scheduled, which will be kicking off in October with the Rheingans Sisters, a folk duo from the Peak District, performing. The sisters are also members of Lady Maisery who have performed at Wyeside previously. As well as live music, they also have stand-up comedy shows planned for next year, including from Mark Watson and Gary Delaney. All tickets for these events and more are available now from the Wyeside website.

Wyeside have also made some changes to their board of trustees recently, and have appointed a new chair, Frank Banks. Frank will replace Maureen Mackenzie, who has served as head of the board for many years and has been a pleasure to work with.

Maureen will continue to serve Wyeside as a trustee. Wyeside are also pleased to welcome Jeremy Andrews, Lewis Roberts and Martha Wooldridge on board as new trustees.

Tickets can be booked 24 hours a day via the website, just visit, or also over the phone during opening hours. Call 01982 552 555 between 2pm-9pm Friday to Sunday (starting August 6).
