Llanfyllin Workhouse is a registered charity known as The Llanfyllin Dolydd Building Preservation Trust (charity no.1091097). The building and surrounding land is owned and run by the community for the community both locally and globally, and will strive to be a leading force in the integration of education, arts, entertainment, and employment using a holistic and sustainable approach based upon sound social and environmental principles.
The Workhouse is already home to the highly acclaimed Workhouse Festival and is developing an exciting range of music, theatre, and arts events. The aim is to provide first class entertainment on a regular basis to attract people from the UK and beyond. The entertainment will brought to you by the successful team that creates the annual Workhouse Festival.
Education is an integral part of the new plans for the Workhouse building. We aim to provide valuable learning experiences for all ages and will have a broad spectrum of educational and training courses including permaculture design and music technology.
The restoration of this historic building presents a huge challenge and we cannot do it without the help of our supporters. We are looking for volunteers to help us with many aspects of the development and there are a number of ways to get involved. To receive regular updates about events and restoration please join our mailing list or become a member.
The Llanfyllin Workhouse is set in a beautiful rural location, only 1/4 mile from Llanfyllin and has the added benefit of being within easy access of the M54 and M6 motorways. Visitors will be able to extend their visit and stay in simple bunk house accommodation or the campsite in the grounds.
