Astronomy and Art, Welsh Myths and Legends

This sounds like exactly my cup of tea!

According to Sue Hodgetts, of the Cusop History Society:

"Friends of St Mary’s, Cusop present an evening with Martin Griffiths “Astronomy and Art, Welsh Myths and Legends” on Friday February 2nd 2018, 7.30pm at Cusop Church. Tickets £6 (students £4) from Sue & Keith 01497 822523, Celia Cundale 820396 or on the door.
Martin Griffiths, astronomer and science presenter with Dark Sky Wales, former senior lecturer in Astronomy at the University of South Wales, was a founder member of NASA's Astrobiology Science Communication team. He assisted the Brecon Beacon national parks successful campaign to gain International dark sky status and in 2014 became Director of the Brecon Beacon Observatory. He is the local representative for the BAA campaign for Dark Skies.
He is internationally renowned for making astronomy exciting and accessible and in this wonderfully illustrated talk he shows us astronomically interesting art and objects combined with Welsh literature that tells us something of our heritage of the night sky. His latest book is “Dark Land, Dark Skies” published by Seren Books."
