Events at this Venue


Bethesda is a 200 year old Grade 2* listed chapel, which, when built, had seating for 3,000 people and it has what we believe to be the largest span of any chapel outside London. It is a work in progress having been partially restored, made weatherproof, a new ceiling and replacement organ.
We have a WW1 Exhibition relating to the men who went to war from Bethesda and tributes to the 39 men who did not return, including a spectacular poppy fall from the pulpit.
There is a small museum of artefacts and another exhibition showing Bethesda's progress and events held since it began to come back to life in 2003 having been closed since 1985.
Our volunteers will be on hand to show people round to tell the story of this wonderful building and answer any questions.
