INTRODUCTION: 16 Medi ‘Dydd Glyndŵr’ is celebrated in communities throughout Wales and the world. We, however, regard the annual gathering of ‘Pobl Glyndŵr in the Gwlad Glyndŵr of Dyffryn Dyfrdwy, on and around this date, as the chief National Patriotic Festival annually held there in form of our autumn break in the north eastern march with priority visits to Llys Glyndyfrdwy, Neuadd Owain Glyndwr in pentre Glyndyfrdwy, Carrog, Ruthin and the colonial castles of the north east which were attacked by Owain Glyndŵr in September 1400. There are, also, other Glyndŵr sites in the area such as ‘Bryn Saith Marchog’ and ‘Ogof Glyndŵr’ at Llanarmon yr Ial which now has a ‘’rubbish dump’’ appearance rather than that of a ‘’Cave of Heroes’’. See photo below we recently took whilst visiting the area; pretty sad state of affairs; do go and see for yourselves and if you get a chance, complain to the owners of the land which the ‘Cave of Heroes’ is situated in.

NB: If you intend to visit the chief Gwlad Glyndŵr of Dyffryn Dyfrdwy do contact Corwen Information Service, based at Town Library, and request two excellent new brochures as follows:

1: ‘Exploring Corwen’ which has a lot of information on Owain Glyndŵr connections.

2: ‘Corwen, Three Circular Walks’ one of which is up to Caerdrewyn.

Long overdue information which now is a ‘must have material’ if visiting Corwen.


1: Sleeping Giant Foundation Abercraf. Excellent Dydd Glyndŵr Dŵy Festival 2nd year running and getting bigger and better (if that was possible). This festival is now a three day event with camping facilities. To see poster and full details of 'everything' in the line up, go to:
www.sgfnet.co.uk for full details. Embassy states...this is the way to do it!

2: Menter Iaith Llanrwst. Have organised an Owain Glyndŵr puppet show which will tour three schools on 15th Sept. First show will commence at 9am at Cerrigydrudion Primary school, 2nd show will be at Llansannan Primary school at and the 3rd will be at Ysgol Gymraeg Glan Morfa, Abergele at .

6: Tafarn Glyndŵr at Gwernymynydd, that’s how it’s advertises but it’s not. It’s up in the hills with a splendid view over to Mold and beyond England, I suggest you check out maps on the internet re the exact location or ask in Gwernymynydd exactly where this Tafarn is. Well worth visiting and, every year, holds a Glyndŵr festival, this year’s event will be on Sunday 17 September and easily arrived at via Hafod Quarry. Activities at this year’s are varied and include a Glyndŵr battle re – enactment. For further details contact Ifor on Mold: 01352 752655.

Yes, there is money out there to hold such events…go and seek it out to hold your annual Dydd Glyndŵr event.

Following 16th Sept annually, we prepare a report on where Glyndŵr Day events took place and where Glyndŵr flags were seen - and we depend on all of you 'Pobl Glyndŵr out there to provide us with this info - and pics where possible. So do keep your eyes open for the flags on such places as the National Assembly of Wales, The Millennium Stadium in Caerdydd, Castles under CADW'S keeping, Council Offices and Civic centres, businesses, hotels, pubs, shops, libraries, holiday parks, farms, private houses and, of course, Glyndŵr Festivals and events...in fact, anywhere! Send us your report and pics and if you can encourage anyone or anywhere to fly the Glyndŵr flag which strongly symbolises the Glyndŵr cry for Welsh Independence, get to work on it.
