A lovely opportunity to sing traditional Welsh songs accompanied by the guitar, mandolin or banjo and part of The Gwanwyn Festival supported by Age Cymru.
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. Particularly good fun for Welsh learners.
There will be homemade soup and artisan bread at £3.50 per person for those that book in advance. Please contact Small World Theatre.
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, Robin Ashton, Financial Advocacy Officer at Age Concern and Lawrence Martin, Fair Trading Officer will be joining the audience. There will also be helpful information from the Bobby van scheme, a scheme that provides a home security service for the elderly and vulnerable throughout Ceredigion. Jig-so, CredCer Credit Union and Citizen's Advice Bureau will have a stall and a representative available. After the play there will be time to chat, have some tea and coffee and listen to their advice and up to date information on some of the issues surrounding bogus callers and ways of keeping safe in the community.
Gwanwyn Festival goers who would like to attend both events are able to do so free of charge and participants are advised to contact the Box Office to arrange their tickets ahead of the event.
