Coleridge in Wales Festival 2016 is coming to Talgarth Sat 30th July with a few community events to get involved in!
Richard Parry (Coleridge Festival Creative), is currently travelling around Wales for 80 days to find Wales' hidden treasures. Noting a gap in their events route between Builth Wells and Abergavenny, after having met Richard on his travels in Swansea, I thought it would be great to arrange a few activities in Talgarth, as we all know it's our local little gem.
The day runs as follows:
PWLL-Y-WRACH WATERFALL WALK -
9:30am Meet at Talgarth Mill entrance to embark on a family friendly walk orienteered by Talgarth's helpful 'Walkers are Welcome' group. The WAW organise and oversee Talgarth's annual Walking Festival, as well as other events and walks throughout the year. http://www.talgarthwalkingfestival.org
OPEN SPACE SESSIONS - Talks. Readings. Local art. Live Music.
Midday - 2pm The Granary/Yard Talgarth Mill. Talks/Readings/Local Art/Live Music. Coleridge Festival's 80 days traveller Richard Parry will talk travels, Coleridge (writer) and community. In addition there will be talks from external community groups from Newport's 'The Sanctuary Friendship International Group', Dylan Moore and Yohannes Obsi. As well as PenCymru writers from Swansea, plus local artists works on show from; Katherine Sheers, Ann Dierikx and Adam-Tatton-Reid. Music for the session is courtesy of Bob Evans and Mice In A Matchbox.
Integrating with the community united spirit of the Coleridge festival, celebrating 'imagination, creativity, landscape and community', there's the coming together of Coleridge Festival in Talgarth with the....
3pm TALGARTH v UNITY IN DIVERSITY football match at Talgarth Sports. Where we will all attend to cheer the teams on.... Unity in diversity are coming up from Swansea, so it's great to be able to showcase Talgarth's hidden treasures and community spirit in way of ample events on Sat 30th July.
I would like to say thank-you to all people who have agreed to be a part of these free community events, locally and those who are travelling into Talgarth from afar. In light of recent events across the world, community integration and communications is integral to a forward thinking, progressive society.
Thanks, Bethan Groves.
