Culture & Heritage

Merthyr Tydfil's cultural and heritage scene is vibrant, with many festivals, anniversaries and events being organised and developed to reflect Merthyr's diverse culture and the importance Merthyr Tydfil played in British and Welsh history.

There are many historical groups in Merthyr Tydfil, who have a calendar of talks throughout the year which you maybe interested in attending whilst you are here.  Please note: there maybe a charge to attend some of these lectures.
