Llwyn Celyn Open Days – 13th – 16th September

Roedd yn hyfryd cael gweld cynifer o gyfeillion Llwyn Celyn yn ystod ein dyddiau agored diwethaf ar ddechrau mis Mehefin. Diolch o galon am eich holl gefnogaeth!

Mae gennym lu o ddigwyddiadau gwych ar y gweill ar gyfer y dyddiau agored nesaf yn Llwyn Celyn, a bydd y dirwedd a bwyd yn thema iddynt. Os nad ydych chi wedi ymweld â ni eto felly, dewch draw i fwynhau’r adeiladau arobryn, prydferthwch Dyffryn Ewias a’r holl ddigwyddiadau fydd ar gael. Cofiwch y bydd angen drefnu’ch lle ymlaen llaw ar gyfer rhai digwyddiadau, gan ddefnyddio’r linciau isod. Peidiwch oedi felly, rhagarchebwch eich lle nawr.
It was great to see so many friends of the Llwyn Celyn project at our last open days at the beginning of June. Thanks for all your support!
We have many fabulous events planned for the next open days at Llwyn Celyn, with a landscape and food theme. So if you haven’t visited us yet, then come along and enjoy the award winning buildings, the wonderful Llanthony Valley and the events on offer. Please note that some events require prior booking via the links below, so don’t leave it too late to reserve your place:

Artist Diana Heeks will be exhibiting a selection of her works Landscape and Story inspired by Raymond Williams’ novel People of the Black Mountains. This work is the culmination of four week-long visits to the Black Mountains during 2015, funded by an Arts Council of Wales Research and Development grant and supported by Peak.

Her work builds on several themes which arose during the period of research: the perception of “archetypes” of the Black Mountains landscape, meaning its inherently characteristic shapes, colours and textures; reflections on the stories themselves, the characters’ human predicaments and crises and their resonance with the problems of today; the lyricism of the writing; and the expression, as witnessed by the wealth of archaeological remains, of a sweeping 23,000-year history of human existence and struggle in this part of the Welsh borderland.

I have witnessed Diana’s work developing … and I am continually struck by the vitality of colour and form in her paintings. The work she has produced while resident in the Black Mountains (and further developed in her studio in West Wales) stands alone as an artist’s abstract response to landscape. An understanding of Raymond Williams’ PoBM novels is certainly of interest but not essential in appreciating this new work.”
– Rebecca Spooner, Peak, November 2015

This event will take place throughout the day on the 13th – 16th September and is free.

Diana will be holding a Private View of her work on Thursday 12th September. If you would like to attend, then please email us on: llwyncelyn@landmarktrust.org.uk

From the ‘People’s Farm’ to the National Park (and beyond): Land and Landscape in the British Political Imagination, a public lecture by Dr. Martin Wright, Senior Lecturer in History, Cardiff University. 7pm, Friday 13th September
Using the inspiration of Raymond Williams’ unfinished novel People of the Black Mountains as a starting point, Martin Wright will explore what land and landscape have meant in the British political imagination over the last two centuries. What is the nature of the relationship between land, landscape, political idealism, popular movements and practical politics? How do these influences relate to our complex and conflicted ideas of nationhood? How might an understanding of the relationship between land, landscape and imagination help us to shape a more positive future?
A suggested donation of £2.50 per person to cover the cost of refreshments and can be made on the evening.
To reserve your place please email us on: llwyncelyn@landmarktrust.org.uk
