venue policy The theatre is a scaled down, living version of the Globe in London - being a third of its size - made entirely of living willow. We believe it is one of the largest willow constructions in the country and almost certainly the only one in use as a theatre in the world.

The Living Willow Theatre has an audience capacity of around 150 and hosts events from April to September - from syllabus Shakespeare for schools through community productions and professional tours. This is a venue for an eclectic mix of music, Shakespeare, festivals and other arts happenings. If the weather is bad, performances take place under cover in the Black Barn.

Along with the barns and out buildings the Living Willow Theatre is the heart of the Mid-Wales Shakespeare Centre. This is a place to work, play, and study - a focus for all aspects of performance, research and exploration. We have a Shakespeare and Celtic literature Library available for education, reference and research, a costume store and much much more!
