Last December we went to the Messiah at the Brangwyn, the acoustics were absolutely first class. The Orchestra were brilliant with the Swansea Short Choir? What a revelation We shall certainly go to see them again! Brilliant!!!

Parking close by (pay and display). All the staff were welcoming and friendly. Room was laid out to make the most of the space. Bar staff were friendly and drinks were being served quickly. Food was very good.
