What’s the cost of water? Learn the harrowing story of the drowning of the Tryweryn Valley.
Ysgol Celyn, in the hamlet of Capel Celyn, was a small lively school, with wonderful pupils. However, in July 1963, Martha Roberts, the school’s Headteacher, locked the school door for the last time.
Martha will tell the story about the journey from the Tryweryn Valley to Liverpool; about the large machinery that shattered the walls of the school, and about the courageous efforts of local residents to save their homes. And although their efforts to save Capel Celyn were futile, hope comes at the end of the show as Martha encourages the audience to hold on tight to the story, just as she held on to the key of the school’s door.
This show is suitable for Key Stage 2 learners.
