Do you know our Anthem?

She is strong, fiery and quite dramatic… but do you know where she comes from? When was she born and how did a sung letter 'Glan Rhondda' (On the banks of the Rhondda) to a brother far away, grow up to become the anthem we know and love today?

Who was the first person to sing 'Glan Rhondda' in public? Who changed 'Glan Rhondda' to Hen 'Wlad fy Nhadau' — Land of my Fathers? When was it chosen as a national anthem for Wales? Who became a record maker with it?

You will also be able to learn the words and the sentiment behind them, so we can all sing confidently, with passion, together…
