AN ONLINE competition associated with the Legends of the West app has been launched today (Jun 22) by Discover Ceredigion.
Created as part of Ceredigion and Dyfi Biosphere destination activity celebrating Wales Year of Legends 2017, the app brings together a selection of Ceredigion and the Biosphere’s best loved legends – a combination of old and new.
Ceredigion’s legendary landscapes come alive for visitors through the app with stories, activities and useful information. Using GPS and iBeacon location technology to show relevant content to devices depending on the location, the Legends of the West app enables the user to discover places associated with 12 of Ceredigion’s fascinating legends.
The competition is to win a two night stay for two at a legendary hotel / inn in Ceredigion. To enter the competition, download the Legends of the West app and take a selfie with your favourite legend and post it to Facebook or Twitter with the hashtags #LegendsApp and #Ceredigion.
Councillor Gareth Lloyd, on behalf of the Ceredigion Partnership said, “Ceredigion has a wealth of legends to share and the app is a great tool for visitors to use to discover Ceredigion’s heritage and culture. It’s a combination of historic and present day legends from tales of the sunken forest of Cantre’r Gwaelod to the gripping story lines of Hinterland”.
The project has been co-ordinated by the Ceredigion Tourism Service, Discover Ceredigion, for the Ceredigion and Dyfi Biosphere destinations.
