This weekend sees the third annual storytelling festival where once again great yarns, puppets and tales of yore take centre stage in Aberystwyth.
I've been directing Coming Home for three series now and it’s still a real honour to be a part of bringing someone’s ancestral past to life.
A fascinating exhibition of recent work by the Montgomeryshire-based artist Stephen West is set to open at Oriel Mwldan in Cardigan. Draw Breath features a fresh selection of Stephen's particular unique blend of drawings created in his studio in Llangadfan.
A new exhibition at Oriel y Parc in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park aims to celebrate Wales’ status as the 'land of castles' during what was the golden age of landscape painting in Britain. The wide sweep of images included depicts castles from all over Wales, including Carew, Cilgerran, Pembroke...
The next few days will be much drier and more settled with high pressure nearby over Ireland bringing variable cloud, sunny spells and overnight frost.
Gwyn Alf Williams was – and probably still is – one of the most renowned, admired, even loved, historians of the last 100 years. It is unusual for academics to gain popular public appeal but that was something Gwyn Alf certainly did. He attracted a following of academics and lay people alike...
I don't have a very strong stomach. Even the mere thought of curdled milk can leave me feeling queasy. So during the interview with Alastair Low of Cardiff Scientific Services, I could immediately feel my tummy starting to churn. Insects.
Ask anyone to name a famous Welsh artist and the chances are they would respond with Augustus John. The wild, bohemian painter cut a swathe hrough British art and social circles in the 1920s and 30s and was widely regarded as the country's premier living artist.
Tonight sees us back in St David's Hall where we will be joined by violinist Tasmin Little in a performance of Szymanowski's Violin Concerto No 2.
The early signs are that it will turn colder by Tuesday, 19 November with Arctic winds bringing a real drop in temperatures.
Chirk Castle sits south of the River Dee, not far from Wrexham, in a quiet and secluded part of north Wales. It was not always so, as this was the area where the Romans made their first incursions into Wales. The castle itself was one of the massive fortresses created by Edward I for his conquest...
Anatomy may on the face of it seem like something best left to doctors, particularly as the grisly process of carving up cadavers is a rite of passage in their training.
the weather remains in a very changeable mood. A cold front will move south east later tomorrow bringing a little rain followed by colder north-westerly winds and showers.
When the Mostyn in Llandudno opened in 1901, it heralded a landmark in the history of female art. Spearheaded by Lady Augusta Mostyn, it was the first venue in the world specifically designed to exhibit the work of female artists, who were at that time excluded from the wider art scene.
We had just about everything thrown at us last weekend. Rain, showers, hail, frost, fog, sunshine and even a dusting of snow on the mountains
The ancient myths of the Mabinogion are firmly rooted in the Welsh national identity, offering a mystical glimpse of the medieval Celtic myth cycle and how life in this land may once have been for our ancestors.
Back in the hazy summer days of August in between reuniting bibles and wedding veils with their original families something in The Hereford Times caught my eye.
There is a belief held by many Americans that Jack Daniel, the founder of the company that produces the great Jack Daniel's bourbon, was Welsh. More specifically, people say he was from Dale in Pembrokeshire. Well, the answer to that one is yes – and no.
Wales may have missed the worst of the St Jude's storm of 27-28 October 2013 but it was a different story this weekend when another area of low pressure brought strong to severe gale force winds.
