History of the Brangwyn Hall Panels

The story of the Brangwyn Panels and the preparatory drawings coming to Swansea is one of triumph over disaster.

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 full history of the panels can be found on the right hand side.

The Brangwyn Hall at the Guildhall, Swansea is renowned as a major concert hall and conference centre, and is enhanced by these unique magnificent panels.

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.
