Traditional Welsh Singalong

Small World Theatre is hosting a fun, entertaining and informative day to celebrate The Gwanwyn Festival 2011 supported by Age Cymru. The Gwanwyn Festival is a month long national festival held across Wales every May to celebrate creativity in older age.  These two events happening on 20th May in Cardigan will give people the opportunity to meet up in a friendly, comfortable venue, join in with a traditional Welsh sing-along, enjoy a tasty lunch and get involved with ‘Bogus’, an interactive play by Small World Theatre.

Mansel Kedward and Roland Emmanuel make up Ric-a-do.  They have the wonderful ability to make audiences relax, participate and enjoy the special experience of singing along together accompanied by the guitar, banjo and mandolin. Join in a traditional Welsh sing-along from 10.30am – 12.30pm and find out more about our heritage and language through Welsh folk music.

There will be homemade soup and artisan bread at £3.50 per person for those that book in advance. Please contact Small World Theatre.

Bogus

Small World Theatre will perform ‘Bogus’ from 2.00pm. ‘Bogus’ is an interactive play that uses actors and masked performers to take a humorous look at bogus callers.  The audience is sensitively invited to join the actors on stage to rehearse different ways to outwit the hustlers with hilarious results. Originally commissioned by South Wales Police and Trading Standards, audiences across South Wales have enjoyed the experience of creatively solving a shared problem through the drama.  The Gwanwyn Festival is the perfect opportunity to bring ‘Bogus’ home to Cardigan.

Gwyneth Jones, Director of Age Concern Ceredigion and Lawrence Martin from Trading Standards in Ceredigion, will be joining the audience after the play, offering advice and up to date information on some of the issues surrounding bogus callers and ways of keeping safe in the community.

Tickets to both events are being sold separately through whatevertheweatherwales.co.uk.  Gwanwyn Festival goers who would like to attend both events are advised to contact the Box Office to arrange a discounted day ticket of £5 per person.
