Croeso i’n tymor newydd!

Welcome to our new season!

Gyda thymor yr haf, mae ein gŵyl ddawns flynyddol am ddim, Diwrnodau Dawns, yn dychwelyd. Ymunwch â llu o grwpiau dawns, yng nghanol dinas Abertawe ac yn yr ardal forol ddydd Sadwrn 8 a dydd Sul 9 Gorffennaf am benwythnos o adloniant dawns am ddim, pan fydd sêr rhyngwladol yn perfformio ochr yn ochr â chwmnïau lleol.

The summer season sees the return of our free annual dance festival, Dance Days. Join a host of dance groups, in and around Swansea city centre and around Swansea Marina on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th July for a free weekend of dance entertainment, where international stars perform alongside local companies.

Un o uchafbwyntiau'r tymor, heb os nac oni bai, fydd yr ymweliad cyntaf â Thaliesin gan frenhinoedd cerddoriaeth Cajwn, y Savoy Family Cajun Band, ym mis Gorffennaf.

A highlight of the season will surely be in July, when the first family of Cajun music, Savoy Family Cajun Band, pay their first visit to Taliesin.

Bydd y gwaith o ailddatblygu llawr gwaelod Taliesin yn parhau drwy gydol y tymor, ond byddwn yn dal i ddarparu rhaglen amrywiol o ddigwyddiadau byw, darllediadau byw ac, wrth gwrs, y ffilmiau diweddaraf er eich pleser.

The re-development of the ground floor of Taliesin will continue throughout the season, but we are still providing for your enjoyment a varied programme of live events, live stream broadcasts, and of course the latest films.

Ni fydd unrhyw ddigwyddiadau yn cael eu cynnal yn y Neuadd Fawr yn ystod y tymor, ond mae'n bleser gennym gyhoeddi y bydd Cerddorfa Opera Cenedlaethol Cymru yn perfformio ym mis Tachwedd fel rhan o raglen yr hydref a bydd ar werth ar ddechrau'r tymor. Cynllun y Cyfeillion: Mae gennym nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd ar gael ar gynllun y Cyfeillion. Bydd y rhain ar werth drwy'r swyddfa docynnau ddydd Sadwrn 24 Mehefin.

While there are no events scheduled for the Great Hall during the season, we are pleased to announce that Welsh National Opera Orchestra will perform in November as part of the autumn programme and will be on sale at the start of the season. Friends’ scheme: We currently have a limited number of places available on our Friends’ scheme. These will go on sale through the box office on Saturday 24 June.

Savoy Family Cajun Band The first family of Cajun music Marc and Ann Savoy and their two sons Joel and Wilson are the first family of Cajun music, fame and fancy titles are not their thing. Despite having played on some of the biggest stages in the world, they know that Cajun’s true spirit is more likely to be found at the jam sessions back at the famous Savoy Music Centre in Los Angeles. And yet, that spirit really does inspire the family’s performances and soaks through their raw, sensual, and expert renditions of some of the best Cajun music you are ever likely to hear. At home, the Savoy Family have played at major events, such as the Newport Folk Festival, and also at festivals and venues all over the world, including the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London. Ann Savoy has appeared alongside her sons in Hollywood films, and has made Grammy nominated albums, with among others, Linda Ronstadt, Nick Lowe, and John Fogerty.

Not About Heroes By Stephen MacDonald

Winner of an Edinburgh Fringe First, and "Best Actor" in the Wales Theatre Awards 2015.

In 1917, two of the Great War poets, Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon, were patients in an Edinburgh hospital. Owen was suffering from shell-shock and Sassoon, a decorated war hero, was now a public dissenter, totally disillusioned by the futility of war. Sassoon survived the war. Owen was killed just one week before the Armistice in November 1918. The play tells of Owen’s journey to become a war poet through his relationship with Sassoon, their mutual hatred of war and belief in the power of poetry.

Final Portrait (cert tbc)

Dir: Christopher Nolan Netherlands/UK/France/USA 2017 2hrs Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh, Cillian Murphy

Dir: Stanley Tucci UK 2017 1hr 30mins Geoffrey Rush, Armie Hammer, Clémence Poésy

In May 1940, Germany advanced into France, trapping Allied troops on the beaches of Dunkirk. Under air and ground cover from British and French forces, troops were slowly and methodically evacuated from the beach using every serviceable naval and civilian vessel that could be found. At the end of this heroic mission, 330,000 French, British, Belgian and Dutch soldiers were safely evacuated.

Paris, 1964. Alberto Giacometti, the famous artist, bumps into his old friend, the American critic, James Lord, and begs that he sits for a portrait because he has an interesting face. Lord is flattered, and as the days turn into weeks, seemingly with no end in sight, he realises his entire life has been hijacked by this erratic genius. The portrait continues to ebb and flow. Veering between frustration and joy, Lord ultimately sees logic in the artist’s chaotic mind and together we witness a genius complete one of his last masterpieces. ‘a highly entertaining portrait of the two men, and Tucci’s own directorial brush strokes are bold and invigorating’ THE GUARDIAN

Margaret Hastings How Fallen, How Changed ‘Rust is the very embodiment of beauty created out of dissolution and decay. Thus I find rust to be the perfect medium for subjects where time is an agent of destruction or transformation. I am fascinated by myth and magic, alchemy and archetype, and in this exhibition I portray ancient gods, forgotten monsters, a fallen angel, and the ephemeral nature of youthful beauty. All of these, time has turned to rust.’ Margaret studied Illustration at Swansea College of Art as a mature student, graduating in 2014; this is her first solo exhibition.

26 gallery 01792 60 28 67


Swansea University’s programme of campus investment will include the redevelopment of the ground floor within Taliesin Arts Centre. This will be developed into learning and creative spaces for students and others. Consequently, Oriel Ceri Richards Gallery will close in mid-August. We welcome you to the Margaret Hastings exhibition; How Fallen, How Changed, which will be the final exhibition in the gallery. The redevelopment will necessarily lead to the relocation of the Taliesin box office to the first floor. Further information on the development work will be made available to customers as and when it is confirmed.
