We look forward to welcoming you to
Unforgettable choral music experiences for everyone in the heart of Wales
Brecon is situated in Bannau Brycheiniog (The Brecon Beacons!) National Park.
We put beautiful spaces at the heart of the experience from Brecon Cathedral, to ancient Friaries and iconic Welsh chapels.
Christ College Brecon will host our 2024 lunchtime concert on
Saturday 20th July 2024 with Continuum.
The magnificent Cathedral Church of St John the Evangelist is hosting two of our concerts in 2024.
Brecon Cathedral started life in 1093 as the Benedictine Priory of St John the Evangelist, built by the Normans on the site of an earlier Celtic church. At the dissolution of the monasteries in 1537 it became Brecon's Parish Church. It became a Cathedral only in 1923, on the establishment of the Diocese of Swansea and Brecon.
The cathedral has a charming Close with a cafe and bookshop on site. There is a small pay and display car park. If you require disabled access to the venue please let us know.
The Plough, tucked away in Lion Street is the venue for our Cymanfa Ganu on the final evening of the 2024 Festival.
The first chapel on the current site was a meeting room in a building also used as a pub called The Plough, which stood there in the 17th century.
The existing chapel was built in 1841 in classical style, on the former chapel garden. Major rebuilding work was undertaken in 1892 by Benjamin Jenkins, local builder. A balcony round all four sides of chapel is supported on fluted iron columns.
There is no parking at The Plough.
