Any Mari Lwyd dates coming up soon?
Chepstow is the place to be on January 16th http://chepstowwassailmari.co.uk/
Or there is also Llanwrtyd on New Year’s Eve http://www.green-events.co.uk/events.html?id=61
Also on 16th January, starting in the Brigands Inn, Mallwyd at 7.30pm. With Gwilym Bowen Rhys. Last year it finished about 1.00am in Dinas Mawddwy.
I posted this on another thread, but just in case people don’t see it - this is really worth going to: a traditional Welsh folk dance group walking the streets of Canton/Pontcanna in Caerdydd with a Mari Lwyd. Great fun!
Saw this whilst waiting to hear back on a question and was transported back in time to when I first read Susan Cooper’s Silver on the Tree. There’s a part where Will and Bran are riding through the Lost Land and are chased into a cottage by the Mari Llwyd.
