Mid Border Arts (MBA), was founded in 1983 to encourage and promote arts-based activities in the Presteigne area of Mid Wales. With the help of a Lottery grant, the Assembly Rooms in Broad Street, Presteigne, was completely refurbished. MBA now runs this historic building as an arts venue and promotes music, drama, talks and art exhibitions. The Assembly rooms are suitable for presentations, exhibitions, lectures, workshops and as a performance or rehearsal space. It is centrally located, on the corner of Broad Street and the High Street, and is therefore in a prime position as a marketing venue or for consultations and meetings. There are facilities for refreshments and a lift and toilet suitable for wheelchair users.
