WELCOME
TO THE OFFICIAL WEBSITE OF
THE WORSHIPFUL LIVERY COMPANY OF WALES (WLCOW)

Founded in 1993 as the Welsh Livery Guild to promote education, the arts, science and technology in Wales, in 2013 the Guild was presented with a Royal Charter and renamed the Worshipful Livery Company of Wales (WLCOW).
WLCOW is dedicated to helping young people throughout Wales to develop their talents and skills by means of an annual Awards programme of scholarships and bursaries to students in schools, universities and technical colleges, as well as to apprentices and young people in the armed forces.

In 2018, the Company celebrated the Silver Jubilee of its foundation in 1993.

Past Master Bryan Marsh


Past Master Bryan Marsh

 

On behalf of all Liverymen of The Worshipful Livery Company of Wales we offer our deepest condolences to Bryan Marsh’s wife Sandra and his family.
We were all shocked and saddened to hear that Bryan had died suddenly after contracting Covid 19.
As one of our founders he was an enormously strong positive influence in our Livery for many years.
We greatly valued his kind and generous support for our Awards programme and the Silver Jubilee Appeal. His loss is a tragedy all of us will feel.
He will be greatly missed.

His publicity pictures of Sean Connery as James Bond and Jane Fonda as Barbarella are instantly recognised icons. He has worked as photographer with Ken Russel and Dino de Laurentiis amongst other famous names. His Abbey Road series of the Beatles are legendary. More recently he is particularly renowned for his photographs of Wales. He lives in Tintern. He set up the School of Documentary Photography in Newport in 1973 and has supported it ever since.
