Owain Glyndŵr - The Rebel Prince of Wales by Eleri Twynog

Gwion Aled Williams Actor - Gwion Aled Williams

After years of oppression by the Marcher Lords and the English crown, one brave Welshman decided enough was enough. He dreamed of an independent Wales, and in 1400 proclaimed himself Prince of Wales. He led a twelve year rebellion against the English rule in Wales, and although initially successful, in the end, Owain Glyndŵr was forced to retreat.

Meet the rebel Prince of Wales in an interactive performance aimed at children aged 6 - 11 years of age. What caused the rebellion; what happened during those twelve years in battle, and why do we still remember Owain Glyndŵr as one of the greatest Welsh heroes of all time ?
