Llantrisant Mari Lwyd

I'm loving getting to know the people and interesting things that are going on nearby. One of my favourite discoveries is the Llantrisant Folk Club, a weekly gathering of a fantastic group of people, where everyone gets their turn to entertain, playing folk songs, singing, reciting poems, even playing the spoons! It's such a warm evening, like stepping back in time, not a single iPhone to be seen all evening. 

I joined the group on a Mari Lwyd tour, such a strange and wonderful tradition where a group travel from pub to pub with a dressed up horses skull, singing Welsh folk songs. Our tour took place in pubs in Groes Faen, Llantrisant and Cross Inn. I made this video to show you all, it was such a brilliant way to spend a Sunday!
