BLEDDFA ANNUAL LECTURE
The Trustees of the Bleddfa Centre will not be running the Annual Lecture this year but will be doing so in 2015, bringing to the Centre once again a prominent public figure to talk on the many facets of the relationship between creativity and spirituality. As soon as the speaker and date have been confirmed full information will be posted here. The lecture will take place in the Church of St Mary Magdalene, immediately adjacent to the Centre, with a planned meet-the-speaker and buffet lunch in the Hall Barn.
