Gregynog Festival’s Borders season celebrates our location in Montgomeryshire and the Marches as well as boundaries of many other kinds, both literal and metaphorical. As ever, our programming brings the finest musicians and speakers together to interpret repertoire and narratives that are both universal yet strongly rooted in Mid Wales.
Women feature prominently – whether as composers, performers, artists, patronesses or saints – to mark 100 years since the Representation of the People Act 1918.
2018 also marks the centenary of the death of the iconic Welsh musician Morfydd Owen, who died three weeks before her twenty-seventh birthday on 7 September 1918. Gregynog Festival’s Artistic Director is the leading authority on the composer, the subject of her Doctorate and pictorial biography Never So Pure a Sight, and she has devised a special sequence of events in locations associated with Morfydd on resonant dates in September and October 2018 (notably the anniversaries of her birth, death and funeral).
Full details will be available in March.
