I don't think so. There's not one in the Canolfan (where we stay), and I don't recall one in the pub.

surely, if there had been one last july, john would have been playing it (and that would have been something to remember!)

No piano? Oh dear - I was hoping I wouldn't have to bring an instrument with me: my options are either flute (portable, but my flute-playing is very rusty) or double bass (not very portable - I have taken it on buses before, but the drivers tended to :roll: at me). I've got a digeridoo… not great for accompanying singing though! :lol:
Chaiff y chwyldro mo'i ddangos ar S4/C,
Ddim hyd yn oed wysnos ar ôl iddo ymddangos ar Sianel 4
efo cyflwyniad gan Melvyn Bragg…
Achos fydd y chwyldro ddim ar y teledu, gyfaill.

You think the bus is bad, try an airplane! :lol:

YES, YES, YES!!!!!!!!!!!

There will be a keyboard! Aran and I have aquired two good, large second hand keyboards over the last few months in our quest to get one for tha children, we are keeping one and after a brief convo with Heledd, we are donating the other to the ganolfan for general use!
Northern course female voice. Raised in Pen Llŷn, fled when 18. Spent my 20s discovering the wider world. A qualified teacher (English & art), worked in marketing with small local businesses - gave it all up to become a Mam! A creative soul who inherited my family's artistic gene, love drawing, being behind the lens of a camera and being creative with food. Movies, red wine, dark chocolate help me relax. Always here to help!

Diolch! We were given one by a music teacher friend which we are keeping, the other a heavier one is from a household auction and will hopefully serve the ganolfan well! :)
