Gwanwyn Dance Night at Dance House May 21

As we wrap up this year’s Gwanwyn we would like to take a moment to say a monumental thank you to everyone who has helped make this year’s festival the biggest and best ever.


Big thanks to all the artists, musicians, dancers, poets, photographers, writers, actors, sculptors, knitters, free-runners, story-tellers, jugglers, stilt-walkers, drummers, saxophonists, ukelele-fiends, ravers, walkers, silk painters, gangster grandparents, puppeteers, quilters, paint-pals, yoga instructors, book binders, yarn-bombers (shhh!), soloists, ensembles, usherettes and projectionists. Thanks everyone! We hope you had a great experience.


Another big thank you to our fabulous army of organizers and volunteers, and to all the amazing people who work with us in venues, who throw open their theatres, galleries, arts centres, church halls and care homes to us each May. For everything you’ve done to make this the most magical Gwawnyn Festival so far – thanks!

Most of all we would like to thank our audiences. We really hope you enjoyed the show. Thanks for coming and we hope we’ll see you all again next year.

There’s still a few projects ongoing – Sharing Stories continues at Hay on Wye Library, Gangster Grandparents has a final couple of sessions to run at Breaking Barriers, and Re-Live Theatre’s play Belonging ends its triumphant national tour with performances at Theatr Brycheiniog, Brecon on 8 June.

We’ll be back soon with more news of our series of artist commissions. Meanwhile, thanks again and have an amazing summer!
