Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? If not, don’t panic! Come to The National Library of Wales on Thursday, 5 December to shop, enjoy a feast of activities, eat and listen to live entertainment.

The activities commence at noon when traditional Christmas lunch will be served at Caffi Pen Dinas (one course at £8.00 and two courses at £12.00). The Library Shop will have a range of quality gifts on sale throughout the day, and more than 20 stalls by local artists and artisans in the evening. Come and enjoy live entertainment in the company of Côr y Gen, Iwcadwli, Bwca and Ffion Evans, and take a breather from it all over some festive light refreshments at Caffi Pen Dinas.

The evening has something for all ages!  Youngsters will get a chance to visit Santa's Grotto from 5:00pm onward and a space to get creative or write a letter to Father Christmas.

And if you’re still looking for that perfect and unique Christmas gift, Huw Chiswell will be here signing his brand new book Shwd Ma’i yr Hen Ffrind?

The Library will be full of Christmas cheer on the evening so why not grab this chance to find the perfect gift for your loved ones – or maybe treat yourself?!
