Some more info on participants *Welsh Weekend with Cymdeithas yr Iaith in Caernarfon*


Just seen this post today Richard. Where are you travelling from as I’m going to be driving from Hampshire on that day.


I’ll be travelling from Oxford, but as I said, I’ve already got the train ticket - I hadn’t thought people were going to be so forthcoming or sociable about travelling! :slight_smile:


Well I’ll be travelling up the a34 and m40 so can make a stop off at Oxford. I don’t want to impose on you but the offer is there.


Booked! Activities only, don’t need Accommodation as I live about 4 miles from Caernarfon. Fingers crossed nothing turns up that clashes with that weekend …


Haia. Can I check, is this event in 2019 or 2020?


24-26 January 2020


Mae gen i babi newydd. Dwi ddim yn meddwl that I can attend anything all day. Ond dwi’n bye yn Caernarfon a dwi’n dysgu Cymraeg. Do you think that I could attend some of the events?


Wrth gwrs! The timetable will be up shortly I hope @charlotte-3.
Mae’ n bwysig cael pobl lleol i sgwrsio :slight_smile:


WhatsApp group sounds fine although I have no experience of using it. I don’t understand the meaning of ‘DM’ regarding my phone number. I hope to arrive at Bangor station at 13:30 and intend take a taxi to Caernarfon to have an afternoon in the town before the course. I’d be happy to share the taxi if anyone else is arriving around that time.


I should think there are enough buses travelling to Bangor from Caernarfon @elizabethliney. I’ll post a timetable :smile:


If there is someone looking for a place to stay during the Welsh weekend in Caernarfon , Totters is run by Aled ( #4) ‘s friend in Caernarfon and is at the end of the road from where everybody else is staying :slight_smile:

some info:
All three participants have been or are involved with the music scene in Wales
Rhys Mwyn was the lead singer with Anrhefn (chaos) a punk band in the 80s, he’s also the presenter of a 3 hour long programme on Radio Cymru on Monday evenings.
He’s also a well known archeologist and has written many books on the welsh landscape.
He has also written an autobiography called ‘Cam o’r tywyllwch’

Aled Roberts is our most enthusiastic Post card Club sender. He has also been involved with Dau Cefn ( an electro 2 man band) and is currently working on another music project.

Barry Jones is the founder member of the popular band ‘Celt’, they still play but he is no longer a member ( in public)
He has written many great songs and he won Can i Gymru with ‘Un Funud Fach’ sang by Bryn Fon.
He also writes for the comedy series ‘Dim Byd’ and he’s the brains behind ‘R’un Spit’ ( A comedy programme following the steps of a Welsh look alike company based in North Wales )

We’re very lucky to have all three supporting the weekend in Caernarfon :star:
