Past Events

Below are some of the events that have happened at Plas Brondanw since 2022

Christmas card by Susan Williams-Ellis

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!

Utopias Bach Collaboratory – June 23 2022

The Utopias Bach monthly collaboratory was held at Plas Brondanw in June 2022, with the aim of reconsidering the role of the gallery, and blurring the boundaries between artist and audience. Everyone present on the day was invited to take part in an artistic production, by responding to invitations that had been placed here and there within the house, to write, draw, dress up, perform and collaborate.
