“Gorgeous Spectacular Colorful Interior”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

Don't be fooled by the dark interior. Inside it's like a birthday cake. It's not just another church to see on holiday. It's late Victorian but not filled with frou-frou. The vibrancy is in the architectural use of colorful native stone. It wasn't open when we happened to pass by. So we went to the male chorus concert which I highly recomend! Concerts are probably only May-September.

“Welsh Male Voice Choir”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

Our host Lesley at Tyn Y Fron B&B asked us what we wanted to do during the 4 days in Betws Y Coed.

One of the things that we wanted to do is perhaps listen to a Welsh Male Voice Choir.
She smiled and said that that weekend at St. Mary's Church, there is one as part of this summer's Gwyl y Corau 2012.

The church is magnificent and serves the religious requirements of the local community.

The particular choir that we listened to was the Cor Melbion Y Foel from Anglesey.

The repertoire was varied which included various well established soloists.

There were quite a number of international visitors and this made the attractiveness of such an event even more pleasant.

A fantastic evening.
