Extra Info:This colourful gathering will be the climax of Lampeter’s ‘Summer of Herbs & Folk’ in which the community and the University have come together in a celebration of traditional folk medicine and traditional folk music.

Community events, talks, herb-walks and demonstrations are spread throughout the Summer. The Town Museum offers a display on local herb lore, including recipes and recollections provided by local people. Antique herbals from the original library dating back to the very foundation of the University almost exactly two hundred years ago, are being displayed in our Founders’ Library - with postcards available of some of their most striking and charming botanical illustrations and frontispieces.

The folk music programme, headlined by Catrin Finch & Seckou Keita and the iconic Martin Carthy, will conclude with the Twmpath and folk music concert on the final evening of the conference featuring local singers, musicians, and dancers.

The conference itself is being presented by the University and its Harmony Institute in conjunction with the National Institute of Medical Herbalists, Britain’s oldest professional body of herbal medicine practitioners.

The conference is open to all with a personal or professional interest in herbs, health, and healing. Please come! The more the merrier!
