The Lost Arc and Old Drill Hall has been an integral part of Rhayader and its community for a couple of hundred years, albeit under different names and with different functions.

We are now asking for your support to bring this amazing building back to life.

Our plans are to return the main hall to one of its former uses as a music venue. There will be a fabulous space with bar and gallery at one end, stage at the other with two practice rooms along one side which if we can meet our funding targets will double as a recording studio.

It is our aim to promote the development of local musical talent, which will in turn bring in more visitors and ultimately benefit the town as a whole. We will also regularly be screening films to give Rhayader a cinema again after so many years of absence – we have met many locals who have such fond memories of The Castle Cinema that we have to try to recreate this for this and future generations.

In order to get The Lost ARC up and running as quickly as possible, following a two year planning application process, we are exploring all possibilities for people/businesses/you to support us. We are thriving on Facebook likes and are making new friends every week. We are registered with Easy Fundraising making it possible for you to shop online and raise money for us at the same time!
