Work begins on Cardigan Castle restoration project

For years, officials at Wales' 12th century Cardigan Castle have dreamed of raising funding to restore the castle and turn it into a heritage center and site for open-air concerts. The castle is believed to be the birthplace of the eisteddfod,  a festival of poetry and music, dating to the 12th century.

Jann Tucker, chair Cadwgan Buildings Preservation Trust said, "When work on the castle is finished, it will have educational facilities, including for the Welsh language, cultural, crafts, environmental and horticulture studies."
