EVENTS - 2018

The 2018 Annnual General meeting was held at 2.30pm on Sunday August 5th in Craft in the Bay on the maes of the Cardiff National Eisteddfod.

St David's Day this year was a disaster because of the snow storms which arrived on the morning of March 1st following a few very cold days. St David's Day Parades across Wales were cancelled because of the transport problems that arose as a result of the snowfall.

The bad weather passed and on March 24th, Clera's South Wales Tune Clubs gave two one-hour performances in the new entrance Atrium Hall at St Fagans National Museum of History.


Clera is a partner every year in Tŷ Gwerin in the National Eisteddfod which this year was held in Cardiff Bay from Saturday, August 4th to Saturday August 11th. We shall be in Llanrwst next year for the Conway County National Eisteddfod from Saturday, August 3rd to Saturday August 10th.
Workshop/sessions are held in each day and we have a stand in Y Bwthyn alongside Tŷ Gwerin.
There are the folk instrumental and folk group competitions during the week: see www.eisteddfod.wales for further information.

It was formed in 2006 to celebrate Clera's 10th anniversary.
Y Glerorfa played to large audiences in the Welsh-led Lorient Inter Celtique festival in 2008
and has played in many concerts across Wales since then.

Y Glerorfa performed four concerts in 2015, the first in Tŷ Siamas Concert in Dolgellau on January 24th.
Our 2015 Summer tour at the end of June included a concert arranged by Cyfeillion Ellis Wynne at Ysgol Ardudwy in Harlech and an open-air performance at Plas Glyn-y-weddw in Llanbedrog, near Pwllheli. We also held a concert in Neuadd Ogwen, Bethesda on Saturday October 3rd.
