I'm a lady with a wood, two children, a husband, a cat and a bearded dragon. We are a family with imagination and bags of enthusiasm. I have worked in education and tourism for 20 years and have a desire to help families connect with our ancestral nature and the nature around us.
I find myself talking about making life simpler and then my craving for learning and sharing starts to complicate things again as i decide to start a BLOG.
This is an exciting BLOG for me, a way for me to share some of the fabulous stories, tales, supersitions and beliefs in and around North East Wales. I spent many months researching weird and wonderful things to ensure we had enough material to develop a new tourism product called MythFestWales.
In 2016 i shared a crazy idea about an event that i thought would be exciting and new for our region with the members of the Clwydian Range Tourism Group. Their response was amazing, they liked it and encouraged me to explore the idea further.
In 2017, with the backing of the tourism businesses and lots of other important people and agencies i completed the extensive application form for VisitWales TPIF funding. We waited with baited breath for the result, aware that there had been loads of applications. In June 2017 we recieved confirmation that we had been successful and were offered £40,000 towards our project.
In 2018 families can buy tickets and enjoy a 3 hour magical immersive experience in nature. They will become part of our new story based on old; meet some of the characters from North East Wales mythological past; and pledge to be part of the wonderful movement to clean up our streams, rivers and seas.
