Women’s Day Celebration at Theatr Gwaun

On 6 March – two days before International Women’s Day – Theatr Gwaun in Fishguard will present a “variety show extravaganza”.  The price of a ticket includes a drink,and there will be raffle prizes to be won.

Producer Blanche-Rose Giacci says: “Pembrokeshire inspires local musicians and artists. A special thanks to the talented Eliza Bradbury, age 14, in year 10 at Haverfordwest High. Eliza plays harp and recently passed ABRSM grade 8, with distinction. We are delighted to welcome her to play in our foyer on your arrival.

“We showcase local musician and piano teacher Emma Leeke and singer Sequoia. The celebrated poet, comedienne, singer and artist Clare Ferguson-Walker is our fabulous presenter. The wonderful voices of Bad Habits choir are a tribute to the talent of the women of Pembrokeshire. This year we give a Theatr Gwaun Women’s International Day Award to Min Walsh, president of Fishguard and Goodwick RFC, who pioneered the introduction of women’s rugby in Fishguard and has empowered young women over the years to gain confidence and self-esteem through sport.”

+ To mark this occasion, we hope to publish a series of articles in early March looking at some great Pembrokeshire women.
