For the last several years the Friends of St Julitta’s have presented a summer exhibition in Capel Curig, basically looking at different aspects of local history in the immediate area and wider in the Snowdonia National Park. The exhibitions aim at bringing to light previously unknown or neglected aspects of local culture, history and the environment. Research for the exhibition is undertaken as a communal activity, which has helped increase awareness of the rich local environment. The exhibitions are bilingual.

An available resource:

In 2007 we changed the format of the exhibitions, using a more expensive computer generated digital reproduction system.  This does make them easily transportable and available to a wider public. We now seek to outreach our exhibitions to other galleries and centres. Each exhibition consists of 12 A1 panels which can be simply mounted on standard commercial display systems. An additional panel explains a little about the Friends of St Julitta’s.

Listed below are the exhibitions which are available to loan:

Dyffryn Mymbyr – Portrait of a Valley

The Slate Quarries & Mines of Capel Curig

Church and Chapels in Capel Curig

There is no fixed charge for loaning the exhibitions but the Friends would be more than happy to receive a small donation for the loan.
