Hedd Wyn

Programme details

To mark the centenary of the death of Hedd Wyn on 31 July, 1917, another chance to see the Oscar-nominated film starring Huw Garmon in the title role. Poetry was Ellis Evans' passion and his life's ambition was to be chaired at a National Eisteddfod. He achieved this at the Birkenhead Eisteddfod of 1917. Unfortunately, he never knew of his success as he was fighting the Germans in the trenches of Ypres, where he died during his first day on the Western Front.
