ACOUSTIC TRIANGLE 2005 TOUR
THE TABERNACLE, MACHYNLLETH
Andrew Lambert bought the Tabernacle, a former Wesleyan Chapel, in 1984.
He set up a Charitable Company, The Machynlleth Tabernacle Trust, to run
it and, after extensive renovation, The Tabernacle re-opened as a centre
for the performing arts on 11th October 1986; a very beautiful
Auditorium with perfect acoustics but no ancillary services. In the same
year the Trust, with the help of a generous loan, bought Harvey House
which was converted into Art Galleries. The building was renamed the
Ellis Building after Tom Ellis of Bala (who had expressed the hope that
chapels would become centres of culture and not just places of Sunday
Worship) and the first art exhibition was held in May 1992. The
Machynlleth Festival is regarded as one of the most prestigious in the
classical music calendar. This is Acoustic Triangle's second visit to
The Tabernacle, the first being during the 2002 festival.
We are grateful for the support of Dr. and Mrs. Ian Rabey, Mrs. Ruth
Lambert and colleagues.
