Hi Wil


National Eisteddfod Isle of Anglesey 4 - 12 August 2017.

Since the Eisteddfod is coming to Anglesey next month I thought I'd share some photographs of the event when it was held in Llangefni in 1957. The photographs were taken by my father Frank Taylor who was also a key member of Llangefni 'Theatre Fach' committee back in the 50's.

I hope that they will bring back memories to some of your readers.

Eisteddfod Genedlaethol Ynys Môn 1957
by: William

Dear David

it was a year before I was born, but my mother told us about it. The Eisteddfod was a massive event in the Welsh calendar and, as you say, Theatr Fach by Plas Pencraig played a significant role as a venue.

I wonder if George Fisher was there in those days. he was a remarkable man with two very distinct sides to him: a disciplinarian at school and a very expressive thespian at night.

The Eisteddfod has been back to Llangefni in 1983 and I think it was at the same location on the Penmynydd Road.

I went to the Eisteddfod at Bodedern last year for the first time in decades and, despite the mud on the first days, enjoyed it enormously.

Thank you so much for your memories and also the photographs that I hope readers to Anglesey Hidden Gem may enjoy and respond to.

Diolch o galon

Wil
