November 1st 7pm

Welcome in the first day of winter -Calan Gaeaf.

On this night we will gather at The Source, our 15th Century Cruck Frame Barn. We will share a delicious seasonal supper and be regaled with tales of myth and legend from a time long ago by Huw Davies, master story teller.

“A liminal period between the fading of the light and the onset of winter. 
Death of the old year, birth of the new. 

But the new year is born out of that death. 

Comes into existence as darkness pushes in at the windows and the air chills the hair on ones spine. 
With the passing of the old year the hidden people are able to cross from their realm to ours, and we to theirs. 
 
We are nothing if we do not heed the wisdom of the past. If we are deaf to the land we tread. 
Wales, this small corner of Wales, is bristling with the half forgotten wisdom of the past. The bare bones of stories that need re fleshing and passing on to another generation ere they crumble into dust.” Huw Davies
