Eisteddfod Poetry Event at Abergavenny Library


Eisteddfod Event in Abergavenny Library

Abergavenny Library was the venue for An Evening in the company of Manon Rhys and T James Jones.

Manon and Jim are two of Wales most loved and respected writers and we were very privileged that they accepted our invitation to Abergavenny.

Manon won the crown in the last Eisteddfod and has also won the prose medal.  Jim has won two crowns and a chair.

The crowning and chairing ceremonies are amongst the highlights of the Eisteddfod week and the award of a crown or chair for poetry is a great honour.  Jim also had the honour of being selected to be the archdruid from 2009 to 2012.  Eisteddfod Event in Abergavenny Library

The evening was organised by the local branch of Merched Y Wawr and the proceeds are being used to sponsor prizes at the National Eisteddfod to be held in Abergavenny in August 2016.

We extend our thanks to Abergavenny Library for allowing us to use such an appropriate setting for the visit of two Welsh bards.
