A weekend of Welsh language and literature in Snowdonia - book now for 2019 events


Thanks Alan. Yes, if people go direct to then they can find it by scrolling down under “courses” I think. Thanks for all your help!


Thanks Ronald! I hope you enjoy your granddaughter’s wedding. I’m sure there will hopefully be more courses next year so I’ll try to remember to let you know. Thanks very much for your interest. And yes, I’d love to turn it into a book someday!


Just bumping this up as a reminder that this fascinating course will be running again on 21 - 23 September. Harriet is a brilliant tutor and if you have an interest in the topic, you’ll really enjoy the weekend.


Yes, indeed - highly recommended! :slight_smile:


Just noticed that Harriet’s brilliant course will be running twice this year at Plas Tan Y Bwlch:


I can’t recommend this highly enough. I thoroughly enjoyed the weekend I attended and would happily go back again. Beautiful location and very interesting and knowledgable tutor!


Thanks so much, Dee and John.

I’ve just heard that we need a few more people for this About Welsh course in June to run, so I’d been going to post it up again here anyway.

The course is open to everyone from complete beginners to fluent Welsh speakers and will give a total overview of the history of Welsh literature (and music!) from earliest times to the present day. It will also compare Welsh with other languages around the world. Maybe Welsh and English are closer than you think? :wink: If anyone who came last time wants to come back then let me know and I’ll make sure we look at different extracts.

It’d be great if a couple more people were free to come in June (June 14th-16th). It’s a lovely residential centre in Snowdonia with nice food in a fantastic setting! Fingers crossed some of you might be interested! More details on the link above


It’s taken me a couple of days :roll_eyes:, but the penny has just dropped that this particular weekend is perfect for me as I’ll be in NW Wales anyway the following week, so I’ve decided to register for the course :slightly_smiling_face:


That’s wonderful! Thanks so much John!



I’d like to come.


PS yes I am the Lynne Edwards who turns up to harp stuff.


@HarrietEaris - I’d like info on weekends in the 2nd half of the year, please. I’ll be in Wales July thru most of December. My email is Diolch yn fawr iawn.


@HarrietEaris - Sorry, unable to access the link to further info. It tells me I don’t have permission to access Squizz Max, whatever that is.


If you do a Google search for “Plas Tan Y Bwlch” you should find a link to the study centre and be able to access info on the “About Welsh” course that way


That’s brilliant Lynne! Thanks so much. We only need 3 more people now for the course to run if you book it soon. See you in June!


Here’s a link Bronwen. It’d be great if you can come! Oops. Hang on, this is the later course in November too

Sorry! Answering too quickly! Hope to see you in the Nov course Bronwen


It’d be so nice to have you on the course Lynne!


Diolch yn fawr iawn, @HarrietEaris. Looks fabulous. But unfortunately I’m unable to attend in November either as I will be at another fascinating course at the National Lit. of Wales centre at Ty Newydd in Llanyrstumdwy that weekend. Please let me know if there are any other talks you’ll be giving either online at any time, or in person in Wales in the second half of the year.
Hwyl fawr


No worries. I hope you have a lovely time at your course too!
