Gwyl Fama Highlights(By Nia Lynn Jones)

This year’s Gŵyl Fama – Music and Arts festival has been hailed a huge success with people from communities across the area joining events held between 3rd and 11th October. Twenty four events were staged over a period of ten days in towns and villages around Moel Famau in Flintshire and Denbighshire. The events included classical concerts, a poetry evening, community art events, a photography exhibition, folk evenings, a music cafe for primary aged musicians, a youth music and arts village, scriptwriting workshops and fun-filled Jamborees.

“As a committee we are delighted with the response and grateful to people for supporting the events” said Keith Redfern-Humphreys, Chair of Gwyl Fama. “This year’s programme offered something for everyone. It included professional musicians and has also provided a platform for local talent. We have also succeeded in our aim of including more communities in the festivities and bringing more volunteers on board”

Mold Camera Club staged an exhibition of the National Eisteddfod Project at St Marys’ Church Hall in Mold and also held an exhibition of members’ work at The Northern Aisle, St Mary’s Church, Cilcain. Club members also joined all of the events to create a photographic record of this year’s Gwyl Fama.

“Gwyl Fama has always worked in partnership with the Mold Camera Club and this year saw a number of exciting projects coming to fruition as a result of this positive partnership” said Keith “Our thanks go to all the members who gave their time and creative talents to create a record of the spectrum of cultural activities that brought a wonderful buzz to the communities around Moel Fama at the beginning of October”. The Gwyl Fama festival committee were successful in attracting funding from the Rural Development Plan which is funded by the European Union and Welsh Assembly Government to assist with staging this year’s ten day event. Friends' Supper will be held on Tuesday, 24th November to discuss the festival and start planning the 2010 event. If any Camera Club members would like to come along, please contact the festival office on: 01352 754212

Below are some of the images taken by club members during the festival.
