Poetry is the theme of a Half Term Open Day at Gregynog Hall, Tregynon, near Newtown, which is free to attend from 12 noon to 3pm tomorrow (Wednesday), October 27.
Some of the rare and beautiful books of poetry published by the Gregynog Press will be on display, including works by John Ceiriog Hughes, Dylan Thomas, George Herbert and Walt Whitman.
Librarian Mary Oldham will be sharing poems written about Gregynog over the centuries and inviting visitors to share their favourites.
The poetry theme is particularly fitting as Gregynog’s woodlands are looking at their spectacular best this autumn. John Keats’s poem ‘To Autumn’ perfectly describes it as the ‘Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness…’.
A free woodland trail is available for children of all ages during half term. Car parking is £2.50 per day but free for Friends of Gregynog.
The Courtyard Café will be open from 11am to 5pm, serving drinks, homemade cakes and soup with cheese scone.
‘The Celebrated Romance of the Stealing of the Mare’, translated from Arabic by Lady Anne Blunt, a verse drama published by the Gregynog Press in 1930.
