Gŵyl 2021, 6 & 7 March 2021


Just to let everyone know we’ve had some information from Tamsin at Theatr Mwldan about what looks to be a really exciting and interesting on-line event planned for 6-7 March. Tamsin writes:

"In 2019 we partnered with the iconic Other Voices festival - which has been running in Dingle, Ireland, for 20 years - to bring a Welsh edition of the festival to Cardigan (which is where we call home).

Year one of Other Voices Cardigan was a roaring success (despite all attempts by the weather), however COVID put paid to our plans for a physical 2020 festival. We put our heads together with some of the other great festivals in Wales, and have developed a Welsh-produced and UK-wide online celebration of music, comedy and conversation: Gŵyl 2021.

It will take place on the weekend of the 6-7 March and we hope will be something to tackle the pandemic blues, bringing a bit of warmth and laughter into our homes.

Gŵyl 2021 is a partnership between Other Voices Cardigan, Festival of Voice, Focus Wales and Aberystwyth Comedy Festival. But more than that, it is a celebration of Wales, our shared diversity and our links beyond our borders.

There’s a really broad range of content and it will be available for free throughout the UK via the BBC Arts Culture In Quarantine digital platform (and later via S4C). Outside the UK the Other Voices Cardigan content will be available via the Other Voices platforms. Please use the hashtag #gŵyl2021"

Here are the links to the trailers for the event, which looks excellent. Something to look forward to in lockdown, hurrah!

What a brilliant idea! Just what we need, also I’m a huge fan of Nadine Shah and it’s great to see her on the bill. I will definitely be trying to figure out the technology to watch this!

Diolch yn Fawr!
