April 2014

We have finally heard from the BBC that our episode of BBC Antique Roadshow that was filmed at the Hall last July, will now be shown on 27th April – busy day for us as it’s the same day as our Wedding Fair!  

On Thursday the 4th July 2013, Gregynog Hall opened its grounds to host the Antiques Roadshow.

BBC One’s ever popular Sunday evening programme Antiques Roadshow were filming for its 36th series at the venue, which was recently named as Wales newest National Nature Reserve for the rich mosaic of parkland and ancient woodlands in the Hall’s grounds.

March 2014

There’s lots going on at Y Talbot! March has proved to be a very strong month for our rooms, restaurant and pub so hopefully that augurs well for the summer.

We have launched our new spring/summer menu and customer feedback has been really good. New dishes include Y Talbot scotch eggs and Pantysgawn goats cheese tortellini for starters, confit duck leg with white bean and chorizo cassoulet and braised neck of Cambrian lamb for mains, whilst desserts include iced nougatine parfait and carpaccio of pineapple.

We have also nearly completed the landscaping of our south facing rear gardens with a view to opening for Easter. The landscaping includes three tiered terraced seating areas for eating and al fresco dining whilst the slopes are planted with heathers and flowering shrubs, we look forward to seeing everything in full bloom this summer.

Powys County Council is helping to build a brighter future by supporting WWF’s Earth Hour, a spectacular and symbolic lights out event that focuses the world’s attention on our planet, and the need to protect it.

On 29 March, at 8.30pm, thousands of iconic landmarks, businesses and schools will show their support for our brilliant world. Earth Hour’s unique display of darkness has become a global phenomenon with millions of individuals coming together each year. 2013 saw a record-breaking 154 countries join the world’s biggest celebration under the stars.

Last year in Wales over 250 schools, half of Welsh councils and 30 Assembly Members from all parties supported Earth Hour.

Many iconic Welsh buildings joined in, including Conwy Castle, Castell Coach, Caernarfon Castle, Caerphilly Castle, Conwy Castle; Bangor and Aberystwyth Universities, Wales Millennium Centre, The Oval, the Senedd, St David's Hotel, the National Library in Wales and more.

Cllr Steve Davies, Cabinet Member responsible for Sustainability, said: “‘We are proud to support Earth Hour, which is such a great and inspiring event. Everyone can make a difference to help protect our planet and we all have a key role to play.”

Everyone can sign up for WWF’s Earth Hour 2014. For more information and to sign up please visit www.wwf.org.uk/earthhour.
