Abduction and Enchantment with Guto Dafis

On Friday 7th June we bring you stories from Welsh folklore and legend, brought to life by master storyteller and musician Guto Dafis.

Stories from South Wales and an age when ploughing a field that had never been ploughed before could lead to dire consequences that would last generations, and a door left carelessly open could result in a child being exchanged for a stubbornly alien fairy creature. As if that isn't enough he will also share the ancient tale of Manawydan, the Third Branch of the Mabinogi that deals with exile and homecoming, problems patiently born and an unexpected solution.
Guto Dafis tells with warmth, humour and vivid sense of place, punctuating and bringing magic to his performances with music and song.

Come and join us for what promises to be a fabulous night of Welsh tales.
