Yr Arglwydd Rhys – Beaumaris Castle
In Character is staging a brand new drama for the family based of one of the Deheubarth’s heroes – Rhys ap Gruffydd. It is believed that he, Rhys ap Gruffydd, otherwise known as Lord Rhys, built the first Welsh castle from stone, and it was there in 1176 that he held the first ever Eisteddfod.
Here’s an opportunity, whilst having a lot of fun, to learn more about Lord Rhys. The show will be touring some of Cadw’s magnificent castles during August 2022.
