Summer Solo Show at Redhouse Cymru Merthyr Tydfil
2nd July to 27th August 2016

"The New Year does not open very happily, nor are its portents very cheering"

So the Merthyr Telegraph begins 1868, a difficult year in the town's history.

Thirty bio-fictional portraits relate the experiences of the people and illuminate the working conditions, housing, health and society of this industrial town on the Taff.

Child workers, bare-fist boxers, town drunks, illegal pig keepers and bad singers all feature, from a time when Merthyr was the largest town in Wales.

The show ran from Saturday 2nd July till 27th August at Redhouse Cymru, an impressive restored late-Victorian townhall.  

Redhouse Cymru is located on the main High Street in Merthyr and there is ample parking a very short walk opposite the Castle Hotel.  There's also a café, jail cells and lovely staff.
