Y Fari Lwyd 2008
Next Meeting Tues 28th Oct 7pm SGF Office, Abercraf

After the success of last year, The Sleeping Giant Foundation and Menter Brycheiniog, are once again taking Y Fari Lwyd around the upper Swansea valley over Christmas and New Year. Traditionally a New Year’s Eve celebration and once seen across most of South Wales, this ritual has seen a growing resurgence in the past few years.

This year the troupe will be visiting venues including pubs and restaurants in Cwmtwrch, Penycae, Abercrave and Ystradgynlais and Pontardawe whilst collecting for local charities.

Y Fari Lwyd troupe meet regularly at the SGF office in Abercraf and anyone who wants to join us is welcome. Remember also that the Mari Lwyd was performed by ordinary people and not by professional performers, so there’s room for all to take part, whatever your ability! For further information please contact The Sleeping Giant Foundation on 01639 731062 or Menter Brycheiniog on 01639 844513.
