Opening
12th March - 29th October:

Gallery and Gallery Shop open Tuesdays to Saturdays from 11.00am to 4.30pm
The Jen Jones Welsh Quilt Centre opened in Lampeter Town Hall in 2009 to celebrate the Welsh Quilt and to promote a wider understanding of the importance of this regional art form. There you can enjoy stunning exhibitions of Welsh Quilts in the gallery, attend quilt-related courses or just browse the intriguing Welsh Quilt Centre Gallery Shop. Her original cottage shop in Llanybydder also remains open.

2011 Exhibition - "Oh that summer would last forever"

Open from 12 March until 29 October 2011. On show in this third exhibition at the Jen Jones Welsh Quilt Centre is another stunning selection from the Jen Jones Welsh Quilt collection. Many are on show for the first time.

Gallery Shop

Within the Gallery Shop you will find a delectable collection of both vintage and new textiles featuring a selection of antique Welsh quilts and blankets from Jen's well-loved quilt shop, and superb hand-stitched recreations of the flannel geometric patchworks from Jen's private collection. In every nook and cranny you will discover something unexpected; books, jewellery, scarves, cushions made from old quilts, soaps hand-made in Wales, teddy bears made from 19th century Welsh blankets and an astonishing assortment of greetings cards, to name but a few. We accept most major credit cards.

Café-Deli
Town Hall Café Deli is run by husband and wife team Malorie and Arif Saad. Our friendly staff serve Great Taste Award winner Union Hand Roasted Foundation coffee in a relaxed atmosphere in the spectacular Lampeter old Town Hall building.

We offer a wide selection of gourmet sandwiches on fresh baked speciality breads, deli platters, daily specials, homemade soups and cakes. Our deli counter is stocked with a variety of Welsh cheeses, cured meats, olives, anti-pasti and salads. The shelves are crammed full of oils, vinegars, jams, chutneys, chocolates and biscuits and speciality cooking ingredients. Homemade ready-meals to take away are also available.

If you are looking for somewhere to host a dinner party or intimate social event then Town Hall Cafe Deli is perfect for you. The main café space is transformed into a private dining room with tablecloths, candles and waitress service or opened up to host a cocktail party.
