Discovering Stories is our exciting new local project which has been supported through Heritage Lottery Fund. Leading up to the 2021 Festival we are partnering with local storytellers Ceri Phillips and Phil Okwedy and young people’s groups Mess up the Mess and Operasonic. They will be working with four local schools in Carmarthenshire to create a unique opportunity to share, explore and re-imagine the mythical and historical significance of the NT Dinefwr.
We are working with Ysgol Bro Dinefwr, Ysgol Llandeilo, Ysgol Teilo Sant and Ysgol Ffairfach who will all play an integral part in this year’s festival’s opening event.
Each school group will work with one of our team of storytellers, theatre makers, musicians or opera performers to explore the local history and myths of Dinefwr to create a heritage celebration in response to these stories. We can’t wait for this to be part of our opening ceremony at our new home and be around our theme of Reimagine and Re-Awakening this year.
