Guided tours of Bangor University’s Art and Ceramic Collections will be held between February and May. The aim is to raise awareness of these important collections, with highlights including a mural by Edward Povey in Powis Hall, art and ceramics in the University’s Council Chamber Corridor and a chance to see and learn about works of arts by other renowned artists such as Kyffin Williams, Brenda Chamberlain, Peter Prendergast and Frederick William Hayes.

 

As well as the general tours that will be held there will be an opportunity to attend tours led by specialist guest tour leaders. In May David Roberts, the former registrar of the University will lead tours on “A Lasting Monument”: the design and history of the University’s Main Building’.

 

The guided tours are part of a joint venture between Gwynedd Council and Bangor University to increase access to Bangor University’s museum collections. This will offer local residents and visitors a chance to enjoy and learn about the vast variety of objects on display.

 

The guided tours will start from the foyer of the Main Arts Building, College Road, Bangor on Saturdays 10t February, 17 March, 21 April and 5May. English tours will be held 11.00am-12.00pm and Welsh tours 12:30pm-1:30pm on these days.
