Gwanwyn Funding 2019

We are delighted to receive funding again for the Gwanwyn 2019 Festival.

The funding will help support the creation of a new work ‘Time Breaks The Threaded Dances’ choreographed by Caroline Lamb and assisted by Janet Fieldsend.

Initially this work will be shown at the In Full Bloom festival in Bristol in April 2019. The choreographic material created will then be used as part of a new short film to be shot in the Wenallt woods, near Caerphilly.

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 11 sessions.
