A470: Poems for the Road / Cerddi’r Ffordd

A470: Poems for the Road / Cerddi’r Ffordd is a bilingual collection of original poems by Welsh poets, all written in response to the 186 mile road which runs the length of Wales – from shore to shore and north to south.

From the seashore to slate quarries, from nuclear power stations and fighter plane flypasts to forests, mountains and the capital city, the poems included in this anthology take us on a journey through memory, myth, love and grief.

Join us for an afternoon of bilingual poetry readings and conversation with several of the poets included in the book.
