Hen Calan - St Tysul Church, Llandysul


Hen Galan is a Welsh festival celebrating the New Year and it is held each January on the second Saturday of the month, having been celebrated annually at Llandysul for nearly 200 years. There is a special church service with readings from the Welsh Bible, in which each of the churches in the local group take a half-hour slot throughout the day. In the villages of the area during the day children call at the houses, singing in return for sweets and money while in the evening the whole community gets together for traditional Welsh food and a good old sing-song.

Children welcome
