We are delighted to receive funding for the Gwanwyn 2018 Festival.

The funding will help support the creation of a new work, ‘Hiraeth’, choreographed by Caroline Lamb and assisted by Janet Fieldsend, with material contributed from the dancers.

This work will be made into a short film.

The Gwanwyn Festival is supported by the Arts Council of Wales, Age Cymru, the Welsh Government and the National Lottery.


What is the Gwanwyn Festival?

Gwanwyn is a month-long national festival held across Wales in May each year celebrating creativity in older age. The festival began in 2006 and is supported by Arts Council of Wales and Welsh Government.

See www.gwanwyn.org.uk for more information.

Who can be involved in the performance?

The classes are primarily geared to creating work for performance and are designed to appeal to the older dancer (50+). Class members have a broad range of abilities, from those working professionally in the field of community dance, to those who have never danced before.

When are the creative classes and where are they held?

This next set of creative classes runs over 10 sessions. These are divided into TWO blocks of 5.
