Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru enjoyed a very successful evening at the Wales Theatre Awards, 2017, which were held at Taliesin Arts Centre, Swansea, on Saturday 25 February.
The awards ceremony offers a fantastic opportunity to look back at successes in the world of theatre, opera and dance from across Wales during the past year. As a company we are delighted to have been nominated for several awards, and very proud to have won the award for Best Production in the Welsh Language, for Chwalfa. We are also delighted for the individuals who have won awards for their work on our recent productions. It was a truly historic night as Llion Williams won the award for Best Male Performance in both languages – for his performance in Welsh (for Chwalfa) and his performance in English (for Belonging/ Perthyn).
