Tamar Eluned Williams

We are very excited to have Tamar this year at Towersey Festival. Tamar is an award-winning storyteller who tells stories in Welsh and English. She collects stories from around the world and has shared them on beaches, in forests, festival tents, schools, theatres, and (the strangest place to date) on the top deck of the number 45 bus in Birmingham. Previous performances include Lakefest, Green Man Festival, Whitby Folk Week, Eisteddfod Genedlaethol Cymru, Birmingham Book Festival and In The Woods Festival. Most recently, she created "The Girl Who Came in from the Sea/Y Fenyw Ddaeth i Fewn o'r Môr" for the National Centre for Folk Arts at Halsway Manor. She was awarded Young Storyteller of the Year in 2013 and the Gwobr Esyllt Harker Award by Beyond the Border International Storytelling Festival in 2016.
