Grahame Davies was commissioned by HRH the Prince of Wales to write a poem to celebrate the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod.
The Prince is president of the festival, and wanted to give the event a poem as a gift.
Grahame Davies was commissioned via the Academi and read the poem at a gala concert in the International Pavilion at Llangollen on the night of July 7.
He said he was particularly pleased to have been able to write this poem because the man who first had the idea for the festival, Harold Tudor, came from the same village, Coedpoeth.
Grahame Davies used some of the money from the commission to pay for a plaque to Harold Tudor which is now to be seen on village's the Parish Hall. There's a story about the commission from the News Online website here.
There was an audience of around 3,000 at the event, among whom was Peter Tudor, son of Harold Tudor. There is an amazing coincidence behind his visit.
The concert publicised the work of Prince's Trust, which aims to help young people in Wales.
