THE fate of legendary Welsh prince, Owain Glyndwr, might still be a matter of debate among the nation’s historians, but music lovers are now invited to discover his destiny on the dancefloor.

It was 1404 when Owain Glyndwr laid siege to Abergavenny Castle. Over six hundred years later, The Owain Glyndwr Silent Disco will involve a DJ mixing club classics and original tunes on the same site.

During the event, a soundtrack over wireless headphones will lead visitors through the legend of Owain Glyndwr and his Welsh uprising from 1399 to 1415.

Laura Drane, of Light Ladd & Emberton, a collective of creatives involved in the event said, ‘The invitation is to immerse yourself in Welsh history but with a twist, experiencing the high and lows of the uprising, with fierce dance-offs, twmpath, sieges, betrayals, and defections.

‘The show is played out using professional performers alongside our ticket buying disco-goers in a series of scenes, actions, and tasks. The soundtrack and the narration, through the wireless headphones, will provide the tunes and direct the action in Welsh and English.’

The event is suitable for all age and tickets are £5, available from Abergavenny Museum tel 01873 854282 or by e-mail at [email protected].

There are two 45 minute shows on August 1, one at 6.30pm and one at 8 pm. Disco-goers should be there fifteen minutes in advance.
