A fantastic opportunity to learn about Wales, the two days will look at: Land of song, Land of Dragon Myths & legends, Land of Saints & Chapel culture, Land of My Fathers Methodist revival & Industrial heritage. Welsh language, place names, basic greetings. This course will not help you to become fluent in Welsh but it will let you into some Welsh gems such as the one below: William Price- A Wacky Welsh Victorian Born in Monmouthshire Trained as a doctor Became medical advisor to the Crawshay family who owned the ironworks at Merthyr and Treforest Got involved in the Chartist movement Fled to France dressed as a woman Became convinced that an ancient prophecy predicted that he would liberate his country from English rule Tried reviving what he believed to be the religion of the ancient druids On his 81st birthday, married a woman of 21 Named their son Iesu Grist – he died aged only 5 months Price was tried for attempting to cremate his son, but found not guilty, paving the way for the Cremation Act of 1902.
