Vaughan 400th Birthday events – April 2021

With the current pandemic restrictions, it is not possible to hold the normal April memorial event at Llansantffraed Church. In honour of the 400th anniversary of the birth of the Vaughan twins in 1621 – Henry, the poet and physician, and Thomas, the priest and alchemical philosopher – the Vaughan Association is holding an on-line celebration on Sunday 25th April 2021, from 4.00 – 6.00pm GMT.

In addition to this, BBC Radio Wales will broadcast a 30-minute programme on All Things Considered about the Vaughan Brothers on their Sunday 18 April at 9.00am. This will be available subsequently as a podcast on BBC Sounds.
