We are quickly approaching the birthday and anniversary of death of our very own famous Flintshire writer, Daniel Owen. This can only mean one thing: the return of the Daniel Owen Festival!
All week there will be lots of different events in celebration including a Stories and Treasure Hunt at Mold Museum on Saturday 20th, the annual Memorial Lecture on Monday 22nd in Bethesda Chapel presented by Dr Haydn Edwards entitled ‘Daniel Owen the Politician’ (given in Welsh with an English translation), as well as an evening in Mold library accompanied by Dr Goronwy Wynne: the winner of the non-fiction 2018 Welsh Book of the Year!
The week will be filled with language, literature, culture and the arts and is the perfect way to learn more about Flintshire’s history and heritage.
In Nia Wyn Jones’ words: “It’s lovely to see the festival banners around town now that the arrangements have been made for the week long festival that offers a wide range of activities.”
Pop into Mold library to see the wonderful display set up by the librarians which showcases some of Daniel Owen’s works – whilst you’re there why not pick up a programme to see a full list of all events taking place through the week.
