Funded by the Welsh Government, the Winter of Wellbeing initiative is to support the social, emotional, and physical wellbeing of all children and young people.
Cadw have supported Winter of Wellbeing, through a partnership with TWO WOMEN: Creative Producer Deborah Dickinson and Writer/Director Janys Chambers, which is delivering workshops events, activities and opportunities for children and young people across Wales.
This now culminates in a show A Day in the Life of Us at Theatr Twm o’r Nant, in Denbigh on 2–3 April.
Tickets are FREE.
Book on Eventbrite or phone 01745-812349
Workshops have been delivered by Janys Chambers and Tom Conwy with the following groups, schools and 83 young people, despite Covid-19 challenges.
- Abergele Youth Shed: 2 groups 11-14 and 15+
- Conwy Connect: young people with learning disabilities group
- North Wales Adolescent Service (NWAS): young people in the Education Centre
- Prestatyn High: Year 11 students
- Coedcae School, Llanelli: 3 groups of students — Years 7, 8 and 9
- In the community: face-to-face conversation and story-sharing session with young autistic trans couple.
Janys developed the script, drawing from all these sessions, inspired by the stories shared by the young people. A number of participants expressed a desire to be in the community cast. And now is your chance to experience this hard-hitting play
So what is it all about?
Glyn and Sarah are trying to open a new Youth Club. Will anyone come or will they just end up playing their own Board Games?
Everyone seems to be worried about something. Chloe’s worried about her hair, Lila’s worried she’s not as clever Mia, Mason’s worried about his job, Nathan thinks he’s an alien.
And as for Molly and Tommy — well, no-one knows what’s going on with Molly; and where is Tommy?
