SEASONAL STORIES

At the Neuadd Ogwen, Bethesda LL57 3AN

Sunday 11th December 2022

Through the evenings of Winter our ancestors would have gathered around fires to keep warm and tell stories at night.

Before the internet, before the TV, before panto….

Storytelling warmed people’s hearts in the depths of the dark months.
