Does Urdd Gobaith Cymruever do the same sort of thing for younger people? It might interest some of our younger members or parents with young people learning.

Well, not sure about advertising but when the Eisteddfod Genedlaethol is in Cardiff, the place there might be of interest to younger folk wanting to go!

Ooooh - ddiddorol Iawn! Rhaid I mi ymarfer mwy…


just seen this, I’m on leave then … is anyone else thinking of going?

I would but I have my daughter visiting from Australia at that time, so busy doing things with her.

I’ve spoken to people that have gone to previous events and they’ve always said it was worthwhile.


The what seems to be annual Cymdeithas yr Iaith weekend in February in Tresaith has been announced again for 9-11th February 2018. The accommodation is the same centre that we use for bwtcamps, so if you want a sneak preview and a weekend immersed in Welsh, here’s your chance!


Just a reminder about this weekend in Welsh organised by Cymdeithas yr Iaith. Some of the highlights will be:

  • A walk with the local Welsh language walking group in the Mwnt area
  • A talk by Kees Huysmans, who came to Ceredigion from the Netherlands, learnt Welsh, established the yummy Tregroes Waffles company, and started singing in local choirs. He recently published a book in Welsh called ‘Dechrau Canu, Dechrau Wafflo’ and is known to be a very entertaining speaker
  • An evening of entertainment
  • A leisurely walk in the Llandudoch area with Terwyn Tomos as your guide

I’ve had an email with more information from the organisers of this weekend.

If you live locally and want to attend but not stay in the accommodation, that’s possible as well. To take part in everything, the charge would be £40, or to just attend for 1 day - £20.

You’d still need to contact Nia though on so she knows you’re coming.

There is a little more information now about this weekend in Tresaith, and it’s beautiful weather today so let’s hope it holds!

There is PDF below with all the details and a map of how to get there, but basically:

Arrive in Tresaith on Friday night between 5 and 6pm, then down to have supper in the Ship Inn, activities throughout Saturday and into Sunday, ending with a visit to Cilgerran Castle. The weekend then officially finishes at 3pm Sunday.
