Exhibition - Hedd Wyn

Hedd WynBangor University Archives & Special Collections is commemorating the centenary of the death of Hedd Wyn with an exhibition celebrating the life, work and legacy of the Welsh poet and soldier who died on the first day of the Battle of Passchendaele on 31 July 1917.

On display are some of his pieces including a draft of the ode “Yr Arwr” which he planned to enter for the Chair Competition of the National Eisteddfod to be held in Birkenhead, 1917.

Also on display is Hedd Wyn’s letter “Rhiwle yn Ffrainc,” which was written about 5 weeks before the National Eisteddfod in Birkenhead, in which he describes life "behind the lines" of the Western Front.

The exhibition is on display from June 5th until December 15th 2017 in the Council Chamber Corridor of the Main Arts Building.

We will also be promoting the exhibition at the Bangor University tent on Friday the 11th August at the National Eisteddfod 2017
