NEW artists and favourite faces join the line-up in the new decade as Rhosygilwen celebrates 15 years as an entertainment venue.

The man behind the Rhosygilwen venture, Glen Peters said: "It's hard to believe that we've been going for 15 years.

"The new decade will hopefully bring us new audiences and new artists. We'd appreciate your help in telling your friends about us.

"Rhosygilwen is the only rural, zero carbon, independent venue in Wales and we can only exist with your support."

One of its major successes has been the Penfro Book festival, and in a change to the usual format, this year events will run throughout the year rather than over one weekend.

It begins with the launch of a book club series and poetry, short story and radio play competitions will be announced shortly.

The website is also being updated to make it easier to use.

Regulars will have to wait a few weeks before the entertainment gets going in earnest when leading Welsh soprano Gwawr Edwards helps celebrate St David's Day along with voices from Ysgol Gerdd Ceredigion.

The concert is on February 29 at 8pm.

There's more on St David's Day itself with top Welsh folk group Alaw, consisting of Jamie Smith (Mabon), Dylan Fowler and Oliver Wilson Dickson.

The first book club event is on March 13 – Agent Running in the Field by John le Carré – while on St Patrick's night (March 17) there will eb celebrations in the company of Racker Donnelly (UK Slam Poet Champion) and Dublin's Mensshed Choir.

Clare Teal and Jason Rebello present a jazz coincert on March 20 and there's more jazz for Mother's Day on March 22 with live music from Jean Louis' Gypsy Jazz.
