The award winning Aberystwyth Arts Centre is the largest and busiest arts centre in Wales, with a wide-ranging programme of events and activities across all art forms. It is recognised as a national centre for arts development. We welcome over 500,000 visitors a year through our doors, including over 72,000 attendances to our unique community arts and education programme.

The Arts Centre is a department of the University of Wales Aberystwyth, and sits at the heart of the university's campus, with stunning views over the town of Aberystwyth and along the coastline of Cardigan Bay.

In 2000 the Arts Centre completed a major £4.3 million redevelopment project which was largely funded by the National Lottery. We now have facilities unrivalled throughout much of the UK - and are recognised as a 'national flagship for the arts'.

Merch Yr Eog

Performance: Merch Yr Eog / Merc’h An Eog

  • 29 October 2016 From 7:30pm

Mair is called home to a funeral in Wales, and feelings of guilt and responsibility are brought to the surface. She starts to question her values and the happiness she thought she’d found with her partner Loeiza, and Brittany has never felt so far from West Wales. But can a friendly neighbour, who brings a strange gift to her door, calm her troubled mind?

A new, contemporary and multilingual play, that explores the close relationship between Wales and Brittany and some of the issues facing young people in rural communities.

This perfromance takes place at Theatre Genedlaethol, Teatr Piba, Aberystwyth Arts Centre.

The play is performed in Welsh, Breton and French, with English translation available via the Sibrwd app. Please download the Sibrwd before arriving at the theatre. Sibrwd is a smartphone app that whispers a translation in your ear during the performance. Please see www.sibrwd.com for further details or download from the App Store and Google Play.
