TOURS of Bangor University’s art and ceramic collections are being accompanied by poetry

Guided tours of Bangor University’s Art and Ceramic collections will be held in conjunction with English Literature at Bangor University this October and November.

The aim of the tours is to raise awareness of the collections, with highlights including a mural by Edward Povey in Powis Hall, art and ceramics in the university’s Council Chamber Ccrridor and a chance to see and learn about works of arts by other renowned artists such as Kyffin Williams, Brenda Chamberlain, Peter Prendergast and Frederick William Hayes.

The special tours will be led by Dr Sue Niebrzydowski and Professor Helen Wilcox from the School of Languages, Literatures and Linguistics and will include readings of poetry relevant to the paintings as well as new poetry.

The guided tours are part of a joint venture between Gwynedd Council and Bangor University to increase access to Bangor University’s museum collections. This will offer local residents and visitors a chance to enjoy and learn about the vast variety of objects on display.

The guided tours will start from the foyer of the Main Arts Building, College Road, Bangor, from 11am to 12.30pm, Saturday, October 6 and Saturday, November 17.

If you are interested in attending then booking is necessary as there is a maximum of 15 spaces per tour. To book your place, please contact Storiel by phoning 01248 353368 or emailing
