Children's Festival of Welsh History 2016

Dafydd ap Gwilym – the stories of Newport by Aneirin Karadog

Meilyr Sion Actor - Meilyr Sion

Dafydd ap Gwilym, the greatest poet Wales has ever seen, (or so he says!) leads his audience on a fantasty tour of Wales. Due to troubles relating to matters of the heart he has to escape Ceredigion, and what better place to go than to the court of his sponsor, Ifor Hael, in Gwent. On his way, he learns about the history of some of the areas’ historical and mythological characters, such as Caradog, Teyrnon, Maches and Gwenllian.

This show will ignite the imagination, present our history in an exciting manner and introduce the audience to some of Dafydd ap Gwilym’s poetry ..after all he is Wales’ greatest poet!
