Event series celebrates Wales


The cultural diversity of Wales through the spoken word, theatre and song is being celebrated by Glyndŵr University over a themed fortnight.

The university has organised a series of events across its Wrexham campus, all on a Welsh theme or delivered through the Welsh language.

The first in the series, LLanast by Theatr Bara Caws, which received two nominations for The Theatre Critics in Wales Awards, kicked off the celebration on Saturday 16 November.

Another six will be held over the coming weeks, concluding on Friday 29 November.

Lynda Powell, director of campus management and commercial services, said: “Glyndŵr University has a vital community role and theatre and the arts offers one of the biggest outlets for us to fulfil this.

“We’re proud of our Welsh heritage and hope that this mini-showcase provides everyone with a flavour of the country’s culture and heritage.”

The full line-up of events is:

Tuesday 19 November - O Groesffordd i groesffordd: A Welsh language public lecture by Mr Meirion Prys Jones, former chief executive of the Welsh Language Board
