National Intergenerational Week

This week (8-14 March 2021) is a national celebration of generations coming together, and in its second year the online campaign is connecting those passionate about intergenerational activity and inspiration across the UK.

We at Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru along with Torch Theatre and Learn Welsh Pembrokeshire are bringing together two generations of Welsh-language learners from west Wales: children at St Francis Catholic School in Milford Haven and Welsh-language learners who are members of Côr Dysgu Cymraeg Sir Benfro.

By creating drama workshops for the children at St Francis Catholic School the children will learn about St David to celebrate St David’s Day. Learn Welsh Pembrokeshire will also have a drama workshop and will be following the steps and instructions provided by the children at St Francis Catholic School. Intergenerational learning offers people of all ages a way of learning together and from each other. An important part of Lifelong Learning, it gives different generations the chance to work together to gain skills, values and knowledge.
