The purpose of the A Far Old Line Project by Cwmni Theatr Arad Goch was to celebrate Ceredigion's culture through a series of exciting, high quality arts performances and events at venues across the town; many of them outdoors. Over a period of ten months, Cwmni Theatr Arad Goch worked closely with the local community - schools, businesses, clubs, and societies - to create and organize an innovative and inclusive festival.
One of the main aims of the festival, inspired by the stories of the area including the story of Cantre'r Gwaelod, was to bring the community of Aberystwyth and the surrounding area together by offering a range of opportunities to participate in.
A public evening was held in November 2016 to invite members of the local community to offer suggestions on how to demonstrate and portray elements of the tale of Cantre'r Gwaelod.
The project has boosted Aberystwyth town’s profile as an interesting and creative place to live and visit whilst boosting the town’s tourism industry and risen the profile of the Welsh language. Throughout the project over 150 individual events were held which saw over 6900 people participating or watching.
