Swansea University annual lecture at the National Eisteddfod of Wales

An annual memorial lecture was launched by Swansea University to commemorate the late Professor Hywel Teifi Edwards at the Babell Lên (Literature Pavillion) at the Ebbw Vale National Eisteddfod 2010. That lecture was delivered by the Welsh historian, Professor Geraint H Jenkins, talking about the history of the 'Gorsedd y Beirdd' (Gorsedd of the Bards).

The annual lecture has become a highlight for Swansea University's program at the Eisteddfod. Academi Hywel Teifi is responsible for organising, coordinating and promoting the lecture in the Babell Lên.
