WHAT WE DO
The Bleddfa Centre enables, encourages and inspires creativity. We run a diverse range of events, exhibitions, classes, workshops, performances and talks. Through these, visitors can enjoy connecting with their own creative spirit, and engage with others through a wide variety of experiences and occasions.
We offer inspirational opportunities for people to explore how the creative arts, together with philosophical and spiritual traditions, can illuminate and enrich life with joyfulness and meaning. Meditation, storytelling, arts and music all aim to bring greater self-awareness, confidence and understanding within a beautiful and nurturing environment.
We hold art exhibitions throughout the year in the School House gallery, these often feature local artists as well as those from further afield. Many of our gallery shows are 'selling' exhibitions and popular with collectors and art-fans alike.
We host music concerts in Hall Barn and the adjoining Church of St Mary Magdalene. We’ve welcomed performances from string quartets, acoustic singer-songwriters, classical musicians, folk groups and blues groups.
Storytelling has been a part of Bleddfa for 22 years, and is an increasingly popular way of supporting people from all over the world to delve deeper into the realm of orally derived stories and their own creativity.
BODY, MIND & SPIRIT
We run weekly yoga sessions on Monday mornings in Hall Barn. The classes are open to all abilities, and consist of gentle stretching and simple postures, breathing techniques, relaxation and meditation.
THE WRITTEN WORD
From poetry readings to practical workshops, The Bleddfa Centre runs regular events for both readers and writers, focusing on the written word in all its forms.
There is a tradition of an annual Bleddfa walk in the spring; a moderately-challenging circular walk starting at the Centre, following footpaths to explore the local countryside, and ending up back at the Centre to a well-earned cup of coffee and some cake.
