About us

A little bit about THE ORGANISERS & WHY

 

Hi there!

We are Llanwddyn Events Social Group . A small team of people who fancied organising some social events for both local people and visitors to enjoy while in the area. The main event being our Weekend of Folk & Acoustic Music held every September. We all live in and around the village of Llanwddyn, Lake Vyrnwy, Powys and are fortunate to be situated in one of the most stunning and picturesque parts of Wales. 

This web site is used by all of the community, we just manage and look after it so it doesn't break!

Llanwddyn is a small village has no more than 200 residents, one shop (Dafarn Newedd Store & Petrol Station), and is approx 1 mile away from Lake Vyrnwy - a man made lake and dam that feeds water through to Liverpool. 

Up and around the Lake you will find gift & craft shops, including the RSPB Visitors Centre and shop There are two cafe's, including Artisans Cafe & Gift Shop who are great supporters in everything we do,  a Hotel, B&B's and Self Catering accommodation. Spend some time at Lake Vyrnwy and enjoy the peace and tranquillity that the lake and the surrounding area have to offer, with breathtaking scenery, great walking, outdoor activities, or for the less energetic, just have a mooch or stop off for a hot chocolate at one of the cafes.  It's a great experience for everyone. Go to the official Lake Vyrnwy tourist web site to find out more.

Llanwddyn has a lovely community centre that is ideal for holding events like the ones we run and is available for hire to the public. In many ways, it's the heartbeat of our village and we would despair if it should close, which we are afraid of.  It is a vital asset to the village and is used for many a coffee morning and social gathering. Activities in the hall include things like, fitness classes, line dancing and indoor bowls on a regular basis. As villagers we have a responsibility to look after our Community Centre/Village Hall, so keeping it used regularly is a must.  It has fabulous stage and can be used for so many things, like concerts, wedding receptions, parties, meetings, conferences,  plays and so on, so if you do need a venue...why not try ours.. 

The community centre is now a registered charity and is in the care of a committee all living in and around Llanwddyn. They have a right old job on there hands Keeping the place going and we do what ever we can to support them.

The intention whilst having a great time organising and putting on events, is to raise money to fund further events and also give a little extra support to our community projects. Like our flower fund, improving facilities at the hall.  So although none profit making we do intend to invest in future events and our village in general. 

So there you have it, nothing complicated just people trying to do their bit for their community.

Your support is vital. Please keep visiting the web site to see what else we have to offer over the coming months in and around Llanwddyn, Lake Vyrnwy.
