A slightly different look to the Esedhvos this year with some events in Bude and others
going online.

A video giving the results of the Holyer an Gof awards will be available later this month
on the Gorsedh website.


The Gorsedh conference will be held as an online conference in the Autumn. The date

ing at a distance to attend.
