Dafydd ap Siencyn Festival

Over 500 years ago Llanrwst and the forest fortress of Gwydir in the Conwy Valley were home to a rebel, nobleman and bard, whose exploits, real or otherwise, have earned him the title of the Welsh Robin Hood: Dafydd ap Siencyn. Llanrwst Town Council are delighted to invite you to follow in the footsteps of this colourful and successful rebel, in a festival which celebrates the people, nature, culture and history of our proud community. From mediaeval re-enactments to choirs of merrymen, here is an adventurous weekend scheduled for you.
