  • Venue: The Brangwyn Hall is a concert venue in Swansea. It is named after the artist Frank Brangwyn, whose famous “panels”, originally intended for the House of Lords, are displayed there.
  • History: Sir Frank Brangwyn, R.A. (1867 – 1956) is celebrated as one of Britain’s most prolific and versatile artists. His work is internationally acclaimed and the huge British Empire Panels in Swansea are amongst the most important examples of his decorative work on a large scale. The Panels in the Brangwyn serve as a testament to the creative vision of the artist, but also to the Council for providing a purpose- built municipal environment where this artistic achievement could be enjoyed by the public on a daily basis. Today the building is used as a variety of functions, regularly used by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and Choirs from around the Country.
