The 2020 Nos Galan Countdown

Follow the Countdown! Cyfrifwch i lawr gyda ni!

 

Since 1958 the Nos Galan Road Races have occurred in Mountain Ash on New Year’s Eve. However, this year the event will be a little different. Nos Galan will take place throughout December, allowing participants to complete the 5km in their own time and post the results online.

To celebrate this year’s virtual Nos Galan, we have a daily digital Nos Galan countdown, showcasing the objects in our collection that relate to this local event throughout the years!
