The Brangwyn is one of the principal cultural locations in Swansea, housing the Brangwyn Hall panels, also known as the British Empire Panels.   

It is regularly used for weddings, functions, award ceremonies and events and concerts - you can buy your tickets online for many events (a small booking fee applies). 

The Guildhall was opened on 23 October 1934, and has played a central role in the lives of the people of Swansea ever since.  It has functioned as the focal point of local government and justice and is the centre of civic ceremony. 

The Brangwyn is a series of restored period meeting rooms and a major conference, event and meeting venue, providing accessible first class facilities for all communities and business sectors. Sustaining its reputation as one of the flagship cultural venues for South West Wales. The planned music programme enhances the facility and provides new offers and audiences dove-tailing into the alternative private/third sector music provision, that already exists.
