Hwfa Môn

Archdruid, poet and adjudicator – Hwfa Môn from Rhostrehwfa near Llangefni was one of the most prominent characters of the National Eisteddfod. Everything about him was large – his physique, his voice and his self-confidence. He won six Eisteddfod chairs and made an impression on everyone who met him. According to Hywel Teifi Edwards, this was a man ‘who had been created to fill immensities’. Text by Bedwyr Rees for the Lle Hanes exhibition, National Eisteddfod 2017.
