Professional theatre production by award-winning Welsh company Buddug James Jones Collective, followed by a ‘Twmpath’ (a Welsh Ceilidh). “Desperate to leave, Bud wrestles with the knowledge that her departure sounds the death knell for the family farm. Leaving five generations of tradition behind her, she sets out alone on an adventure into the big smoke…” With live music and welsh cakes, award-winning ‘Hiraeth’ explores the decline of Welsh tradition and identity through one young woman’s struggle to escape and let go. ‘Hiraeth’ is a Welsh word with no direct translation. It’s a mixture of homesickness and an intense form of longing or nostalgia. Winner of ‘Best Production in the English Language’ at the Wales Theatre Awards 2015. Winner of the IdeasTap Underbelly Award 2014. Show starts at 7.30 p.m., doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets £10 (includes post-show ’Twmpath’). Bar.
