Tafwyl

Tafwyl 2013
Tafwyl is held every year at Cardiff Castle.

We attended Cardiff’s annual Welsh language arts and culture festival, as it visited Cardiff Castle again this year.

Tafwyl ran for nine days in total: a fringe event was held all around the city for seven days, and the festival came to an end with the main event at Cardiff Castle on Saturday 22 and Sunday 23 June.
