A470 on the road day 5 National Library of Wales Videos

Nowhere near the A470 of course, but such a prestigeous venue!

And such lovely people, Pedr ap Llwyd, the librarian (National Librarian, I suppose!), said

it was an amazing, warm, friendly, enriching event and the book is a treasure trove of excellent verse.

and then there was such a gorgeous view over the town and the sea!

at this point I realised I was running out of space on the camera, so things got a bit hairy…

Jeremy Dixon and Siôn Aled (sorry, I clipped the beginning)

Lowri Williams (Just in Welsh as the camera ground to a halt)

Did you hear the coverage on the book on Classic FM and on BBC6 Music?

And see the coverage in the Guardian?
