Annual Lecture 2020 (Auction 16/11/2019)

The 2020 Annual Cymdeithas Waldo Lecture will be held at Bethel Chapel, Mynachlog-ddu on Friday, September 25. The guest lecturer will be Professor Menna Elfyn. Crymych Mixed Choir will take part as well. More details to follow.

However on Saturday, November 16 at Ysgol y Frenni, Crymych, an auction ‘Llên a Chelf a Llun a Chân’ will be held. Paintings and manuscripts have been donated by some of Wales’ foremost artists, poets and composers – a total of 150 items.

The intention is to raise funds to enable Cymdeithas Waldo to carry on with its work. In the past a bronze bust of Waldo was commissioned from John Meirion Jones, a new edition of Cerddi’r Plant as well as a number of plaques.  Also, the leaflet The Waldo Tour has been distributed widely.

If you wish to place a bid prior to the auction or require further information please contact  alunifans@hotmail.com 01437 532603. The auction will start at ten o’clock but admission will be at nine o’clock. There might well be further additions to the CATALOGUE:
