Dafydd ap Siencyn Festival

 

Dros 500 mlynedd yn ôl bu Llanwst a chaer goedwig Gwydyr yn Nyffryn Conwy yn gartref i wrthryfelwr, uchelwr, a bardd y mae ei gampau, boed yn wir neu beidio, wedi ennill iddo’r teitl o Robin Hood Cymru: Dafydd ap Siencyn.

Mae’n bleser gan Gyngor Tref Llanrwst eich gwahodd i ddilyn yn ôl traed y gwrthryfelwr lliwgar a Ilwyddiannus hwn, mewn gŵyl sy’n dathlu pobl, natur, diwylliant a hanes ein cymuned falch. O ailberfformiadau canoloesol i gorau o wŷr llawen, dyma benwythnos anturus wedi’i drefnu ar eich cyfer.

 

Over 500 years ago Llanrwst and the forest fortress of Gwydyr 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 medieval re-enactments to choirs of merrymen, here is an adventurous weekend scheduled for you.
