In the spring of 2020, Swansea Museum in collaboration with the Calon Lân Centre in Swansea, will be hosting a museum exhibition to commemorate the centenary of the death of local and Welsh poet, Daniel James (Gwyrosydd), author of the famous Welsh anthem, “Calon Lân”.

Great news! Calon Lan Centre has recently been awarded £44,530 for the renovation of the grounds surrounding Calon Lan Centre. These grounds bear great local and national historical significance yet have required significant work in order to sustain such a natural environment. Now, thanks to the Landfill Disposals Tax Communities Grant Scheme, we are now able to restore much of the beauty of the landscape.

In April 2019 the Morriston Orpheus Choir held a number of its rehearsals at Mynyddbach Chapel in Swansea. The Chapel hosts the Calon Lân Centre in recognition of Daniel James, who wrote the words of Calon Lân, and who is buried in the Chapel graveyard.The Choir took the opportunity to film this short tribute (with thanks to Colin Rees and David Hammond-Williams for producing the video)
