We’re privileged and delighted to have support from some wonderful organisations. Without them, it’s fair to say that none of this would be possible and we’d like to take a little time to acknowledge their help in bringing the Tredegar House Folk Festival to life. If you’d like to know more about any of these organisations, just click on the logos below and you’ll go straight to their websites. In a world where too few organisations spare time or resources for the arts, these organisations are beacons of hope for excellence and creativity, and we thank them all.
The funding that the Arts Council for Wales distributes comes from both the Welsh Government and The National Lottery. Most of the funding goes to artists and arts organisations - such as this festival - carrying out programmes of work across Wales. These can include theatres, cinemas, galleries and projects for all ages…you name it. Sometimes the Council also runs its own projects, especially where these explore new areas of arts activity, or help to persuade other organisations to take an interest in the arts.

Ty Cerdd is an organisation that exists to promote, champion and celebrate the music of Wales. Besides being a resource centre and a hub for help and advice to creative musical talents, it distributes Lottery funding in the form of grants across specific areas that go to the heart of Welsh music making. These include funding for new music commissions and youth funding (responsible in 2020 for bring the brilliant Avanc Welsh Folk Ensemble to Tredegar House Folk Festival). Ty Cerdd, based in Cardiff’s Millennium Centre, also has a fine library of Welsh and choral music for hire, plus a recording studio, available for hire, and used by stars such as Cerys Matthews, Bryn Terfel, Amy Wadge and many more.

The Tredegar House Folk Festival Singer-Songwriter Competition is co-sponsored by Greg and Lindsay Rowlands who say: “We’re delighted to be part of this initiative. We support live music and want to encourage songwriters and singers to give us new material in live music venues.”
We are also hugely grateful to the following organisations who have generously supported us this year and in the past. Once again, we thank you all from the bottom of our hearts. To find out more about any of them, just click on the individual logos.
