the first EVEnt

The Winter Festival was held on 2 December 2017

The magic started after dark with a Festival procession through the town to the castle. Pipers, the storyteller, the Knights of Ardudwy with flaming torches, children with lanterns, a fire dancer (Meirion) and the Cambrian Choir were all pursued by the fearsome Morfeirch – the giant seahorses.  At the castle, Deuair (Ceri Owen Jones and Elsa Davies), played the ancient bray harp and crwth while Siân Miriam narrated the battle of Meirion and the Morfeirch.
