Mari Lwyd 2018

Friday 12th January at 7.00pm

FREE EVENT

 

Ymunwch â ni i ddathlu’r flwyddyn newydd gyda digwyddiad Mari Lwyd traddodiadol Cymreig!  Byddem yn teithio efo Mari (penglog addurniedig ceffyl) o amgylch tafarndai cyfagos cyn gorffen yng Nghanolfan Cymry Llundain dan ganu a dawnsio twmpath.  Mae’r noson yn agored i bawb – does dim rhaid bod yn hyderus mewn siariad Cymraeg neu mewn canu.  Digwyddiad rhad ac am ddim. 

Join us for the third London ‘Mari Lwyd’ (Grey Mare) New Year’s celebration!

Originally Mari (a decorated horse’s skull) and her party would tour an area gaining access to houses by winning witty improvised sing-offs with local families who would then offer the party food, drink and best wishes for the new year.  Our event will follow the 21st century tradition of visiting pubs instead of houses and song-sheets will be provided.  The pubs will be confirmed soon, but we will finish the evning at the London Welsh Centre with more singing and some Welsh twmpath (ceilidh) dancing.

Parts of the evening will take place in Welsh but the event is suitable for everyone regardless of your fluency in Welsh or confidence in singing.  The event is free of charge.
