Arthur and Welsh Mythology

22 July 2017 - 16 December 2017

Part of the 'Arthur and Welsh Mythology' exhibition in the Hengwrt Gallery has been closed due to unforeseen circumstances. Apologies for any inconvenience.

There is in Wales a long and rich tradition of storytelling. The Mabinogion, folk legends and local myths and tales have formed a part of our cultural inheritance from very early times to the present day.

In our exhibition, 'Arthur and Welsh Mythology', we will meet some of the most colourful characters from our mythology, and present their stories on the pages of manuscripts, on the canvases of artworks and through our vast screen and sound archive.
