The 24th Sir John Lloyd Memorial Lecture: “A Pretty Castle and as Fair Place”: Tretower Court by Dr David Robinson

The group of medieval buildings at Tretower is one of the most remarkable in all Wales. The late medieval Tretower Court was saved for the nation by the Brecknock Society in 1930 and the twelfth-century castle was taken into the care of the State in 1947. Dr Robinson’s interest in Tretower has developed over several decades and his lecture will look at the conservation work at both buildings, and at the various interpretations placed on them by different generations of historians.

Tickets are free but seats should be booked via Theatr Brycheiniog. There will be a retiring collection in aid of the educational work of the Society.

Theatr Brycheiniog, Brecon’s Centre for the Arts opened in April 1997, as the first wholly-funded Lottery new build arts organisation in the UK. The Arts Centre is probably situated in one of the most picturesque locations of any venue in the UK. Built alongside the canal basin in the heart of Brecon, serving the town and surrounding areas of Powys, Monmouthshire and beyond, it is rooted firmly in the community it serves.
