The beautifully illuminated Biblical Manuscript belonged to the religious community founded by St. Teilo in Llandeilo Fawr between the 8th and 10th centuries. Records made in the margins at that time are the earliest surviving examples of written Welsh and are a fascinating insight into Medieval Wales.

The Tywi Valley Open Studios Arts Trail
This has become a very successful annual event, during which various artists and craftspeople will be opening their studios and homes to the public, free of charge. In addition there will be an Art Exhibition on the 21st July - 11 August, at Fountain Fine Art, Rhosmaen Street, which will showcase the work contributed by the various artists.
WNO are pleased to be taking part in the Llandeilo Music Festival for the first time this summer, working with year 5 and 6 pupils from 3 primary schools in the area; Ysgol Ffairfach, Ysgol Teilo Sant and Llandeilo Primary school. WNO’s schools program provides workshops and opportunities for young people across Wales and England, giving them the opportunity to experience the genre for the first time. Throughout our 2017/18 season we worked with over 100 schools and 3000 young people to introduce opera in interactive experiences, performances and workshops. Our sessions at the festival will duplicate the work we continue in schools by introducing popular characters and stories from opera inspiring them to explore this powerful genre in the classroom and at home. Director of Engagement and Partnerships, Emma Flatley says, “WNO’s school work is designed to offer young people the chance to engage with an art form they may never have seen before. It’s a chance to see how opera is relevant, engaging and fun, where you can work with professional singers and orchestral players to push the boundaries of what’s possible with music and art.”
