Talk by Julie Brominicks: The Edge of Cymru: A Journey

Part of our Wednesday Evening History Talks

Venue: Hay Castle Clore Learning Space

When Julie Brominicks embarked on her journey around the edge of Cymru by Wales Coast Path and Offa’s Dyke Path in 2012, she intended her walk only to be a break between careers – between her job as a sustainability teacher at the Centre for Alternative Technology and her ambition to become a writer.

In reality her walk was the catalyst that led to more journeys. A quest to examine her identity as an English incomer. A subsequent research journey into Cymru’s language and history. An environmental pilgrimage as she considers how we arrived at this state of environmental crisis – and how we can best respond.

What emerges in form of a book, is a homage – to Cymru, its past, present and potential future, and to its peoples, land, language and biodiversity.

Join Julie for an evening of journeying with particular relevance to Y Gelli - Hay, and its place on the edge of Cymru.

Julie Brominicks is author of The Edge of Cymru published by Seren Books, and is a frequent contributor to BBC Countryfile Magazine. She will be signing books after the talk.
