The National Library of Wales stand will be a hive of activity on Eisteddfod Maes

Aberystwyth National Library promises a busy National Eisteddfod of Wales at Tregaron from 30 July to 6 August.

The library booth will include a unique exhibit and cinema where visitors can relax and admire the treasures of its vast collection of moving images.

An exciting and varied program of events for families and adults will take place at our stand during the week, including concerts with artists such as Parisa Fouladi, Owen Shiers, Mari Mathias, Ynys, Izzy & Eädyth and Plu.

Other sessions will focus on health and well-being, including Clocsffit with Tudur Phillips and a circus workshop.

An event will be organized in partnership with the charity Meddwl and singer Miriam Isaac to raise awareness of the importance of mental well-being.

Literary sessions with partners include a special event on Monday August 1 with chief poet Gwenallt Llwyd Ifan, originally from Tregaron. It will present a sequence of poems, recently commissioned by the library in partnership with Barddas, based and inspired by the current exhibition A Oes Heddwch?

The library will also be present in other regions of the Maes with diverse and fascinating presentations at the stands of the companies, Y Lle Celf and Tŷ Gwerin.

The library shop will launch a series of specially commissioned products by artists Valeriane Leblond and Ruth Jên, as well as unique pieces based on national collections, including some relating to the Tregaron region.

Pedr ap Llwyd, Managing Director and Librarian of the Library, said: “We look forward to seeing people from all over visiting us on the Maes and in the Library building as we host one of the biggest festivals cultures of Europe here in Ceredigion.

“After a long wait, we look forward to a special and memorable occasion and have prepared a varied and exciting program of events, celebrating our language and culture for families, at our stand and in other areas of the Maes in Tregaron.”
