Gregynog Festival 2014: War

Flemish Radio Choir

Gregynog Festival 2014: War explored the impacts of the English Civil War and the First Wolrd War on musicians in Wales and the Borders. 


Events were held for the first time at the National Trust propoerties of Chirk Castle and Powis Castle, uniting music with fitting historic spaces, as well as events taking place in Aberystwyth, Llanfair Caereinion, Llandinam, Cardiff, Montgomery, Shrewsbury, Stokesay, Brampton Bryan, Trawsfynydd and Gregynog itself.


Repertoire included music by distinguished Belgian composers who came to live in Mid Wales as refugees in 1914, thanks to the philanthropy of Festival founders Gwendoline and Margaret Davies. The commemoration formed part of the First Minister's project Cymru'n Cofio | Wales Remembers 1914-1918 and the Festival participated in events in Scotland and Belgium itself.


The concerts at Chirk Castle and Aberystwyth were broadcast live on BBC Radio 3's Live in Concert
