From 8-14 March 2021, we took part in the second ever national celebration of bridging generations. The online campaign connected those passionate about intergenerational activity and inspiration across the UK.

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

Through drama workshops at St Francis Catholic School, the children were taught about St David in celebration of St David’s Day. Learn Welsh Pembrokeshire also hosted a drama workshop and followed 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.
