Gŵyl CRIME CYMRU Festival 2022: April 27-29 and May 2-4: Free

Gŵyl CRIME CYMRU Festival 2022 will be online, free to viewers, and include well-known national and international crime writers as well as featuring Welsh authors to cater to a range of tastes.

At the festival, stars of the crime fiction firmament include Ann Cleeves, Lilja Sigurðardóttir, Mari Hannah, Vaseem Khan, Elly Griffiths, Chris Lloyd, B E Jones, Cathy Ace, Philip Gwynne Jones, Mark Billingham, and Abir Mukjerjee.

For true-crime fans, there's a rare opportunity to learn about one of the UK’s most notorious murders, the axe-killing of private investigator Daniel Morgan. Daniel’s brother Alastair and investigative journalist Peter Jukes will reveal all.

Events take place in two three-evening blocks: 27–29 of April and 2–4 of May 2022.

For those wondering, gŵyl is the Welsh word for festival, and one of the aims of the festival is to introduce more readers to the great fiction of Wales, historical and contemporary in English and in Welsh.  We are also proud to be able to provide events in Welsh as well as English.

The Crime Close Up program offers short readings prior to each panel and will introduce viewers to new Welsh talent.

The program offers something for everyone:

For the second year in a row, due to the generous support of Aberystwyth Town Council and Literature Wales, all tickets are free of charge.
