We hold cultural and artistic activities at Plas Brondanw in order to promote the arts in the area, and to offer opportunities for people of all ages to socialize and express themselves creatively. We hold a program of talks, workshops, courses and events throughout the year. Keep an eye on these pages or on our accounts on social media to find out what is coming up.

For more details, or to reserve a place at an event contact us on 01766770590 or There is no need to reserve a place at exhibition openings, but places are limited for talks and workshops, so please reserve a place for these events, even when they are free to attend.

Fee Reduction or Waiver Form

We have decided to set a theme each year, going forwards. Items from the Susan Williams-Ellis archive will be curated according to the theme for the year, and this will also be the theme for the open and young open exhibitions. We invite artists who wish to have solo or group shows to consider responding to the theme, if they feel inspired to do so, although this is not a requirement. Events will also be curated to respond to the theme, where appropriate. The themes are deliberately broad and may be interpreted in any way that the artist feels is appropriate. The themes for the next five years are outlined below:

2023: Airbourne
2024: Transformation
2025: Space
2026: Animal / Vegetable / Mineral
2027: Disturbance
2028: The Sea

Plas Party

29 December 2023 at 3pm

You are invited to celebrate the holidays at Plas Brondanw, with music by Twm Morys and Gwyneth Glyn, and a chance to socialize and enjoy the warmth of the Plas at the end of the year. We are very grateful to the Clough Williams-Ellis Foundation for their generous contribution to the costs of hosting the party, which is free to attend. Everyone is welcome, whether you are an old friend or have never crossed the threshold before.

We will be providing some drinks and light refreshments, but if you could bring something to share, we would be very grateful. If you would like to bring an instrument to jam after the official musicians have finished their set, that would be lovely. We now have a piano in the library, which is also available for playing

We look forward to seeing you there!
