Llandinam Local History Fairs
2013 & 14

The Village Hall Centenary Restoration project involved not only much-meeded repairs and renovations to teh fabric of the building, but also a project to understand the history of the building and the activities that had taken place there over the past one hundred years.

The story was not one that could be understood in isolation. That is why the project eventually included three interpretation panels: one on the village of Llandinam; one on the Davies family of Llandinam, whose wealth made the hall possible; and one on the design, layout and building of the hall.

That approach was further developed by holding two History Fairs to which individual reseatchers, neighbouring museums, and public bodies contributed.

From the Saturday 27th September 2014 History Fair Programme

"The day will include an oportunity to scan any documents or photographs into our archive (and have a copy to show your friends), a session on identifying 'finds' from the archaelogists at Clywyd-Powys (bring a photograph or an item along for them to see) and some new material from Llandinam.

There will be a small exhibition of documents from the wartime evacuation of Gordonstounn school to Plas Dinam and Broneirion, archive film footage from Girl Guides at Broneirion in 1940s and 1950s, and a chance to tour Llandinam Village Hall, with its new interpretive panels.
