This year’s Royal Welsh feature county has started the year with two major fundraising events.

A concert in Machynlleth Tabernacl featured Tra Bo Dau – tenors Rhys Meirion and Aled Wyn Davies –supported by the Federation Choir (Glantwymyn, Llanbrynmair a Charno) and young Aria Wyn.

The Radnor Twurzels held centre stage at a fundraising concert at the Cefn Coch Inn, Welshpool, when an auction alone held on the night raised more than £7,500.
