Christ College is hosting the Brecon Choir Festival for a third year and looks forward to welcoming the panel discussion with Dr Rowan Williams, the Saturday lunchtime concert with Continuum and the Sunday lunchtime concert with the Solstice Choral Ensemble. Both of these concerts will be in their chapel. The Brecon Choir Festival is very grateful to Christ College for the reduced fees that they offer us.


The Chapel at Christ College is an integral and important part of daily life at Christ College with services on most days for different year groups at the school.  Christ College is fortunate to have its own 50 strong choir made up of pupils at the school.


The Chapel at Christ College Brecon dates from the  thirteenth century when it was the chapel of the Dominican Friary of St Nicholas (est. c1250). After the dissolution of the friary (1538), it became the chapel for the College of Christ at Brecknock founded by Henry VIII (1541).    

The original chapel, comprising a choir, chancel and nave, was much larger. The roof was destroyed at the end of the Civil War and reparations were made to the choir and chancel. The nave, however, was left roofless. The Chapel was further restored (1863) under the instruction of diocesan architects Pritchard and Seddon, who also designed School House (1863). The East window of the Chapel is by Clayton and Bell to designs by Seddon.
