what a day it was – a fabulous celebration of all things Welsh and Patagonian!

The community came together to support our joint venture with Ysgol Bro Gwydir’s Dance and Clog Team’s fundraising event called -The BespOAK Clog.

The team who have been invited to perform and teach dance skills to the local community and schools in Patagonia, were not only raising funds to support their trip but also wanted to showcase a slice of Welsh culture ahead of the National Eisteddfod, which takes place in Llanrwst, in the first week of August.

Ok so the weather turned a little drizzly in the afternoon and we had to decamp from the terrace into the drier atmosphere of Y Stable’s stage area. But the Gaucho Grill Chefs continued on under their smoky canopy dishing up authentic style asada cooking!

A fantastic response from visitors and locals alike to seeing an extravaganza of traditional dance and folk music. The dance teams even had a box of spare clogs available for anyone who wanted to have a go and join in!

The day raised just under £400 for the school fund and that was matched by a very benevolent donation a day later which doubled the total! We’re really looking forwards to seeing and hearing about the Team’s experiences in Patagonia – if you’d like to help them on their way you can donate via Just Giving ; Clocswyr Y Bont
