The Light of Winter / Goleuni’r Gaeaf

A celebration of light and song in the heart of Cardiff. The harmonious sounds of the Welsh Folk song Ar Lan y Môr will fill the gardens whilst you’re immersed in a rippling calm light display with colourful waves of light.

In place from 25 Nov – 11 Feb and open daily from 8am-9pm, the FREE installation is located at St John’s Garden near Cardiff Market.

Best enjoyed at dusk and after dark, the installation, which is a new addition to Cardiff’s winter attractions from FOR Cardiff, is inspired by the ancient Welsh Midwinter celebration. The traditional feast, held on the shortest day of the year, was known as ‘Goleuni’r Gaeaf (The Light of Winter)’, and was a time to celebrate community and welcome longer, brighter days.

In addition to the installation, there will be free family storytelling and art workshops in January ’23, hosted by local author and illustrator Jack Skivens. Click here to find out more and book.
