Caerau Children Tell Us ‘We Need Bees’


Young students from Caerau Primary School are busy working with Theatr na n’Og rehearsing for a free community show-back performance of ‘We Need Bees’, on Friday 9 July at 1.30pm at Caeau Primary School.

The play looks at the many issues faced by bees in the current environmental climate, including the use of pesticides, organic farming, pollution, allotment creation and intensive farming.

The workshops are supported by Caerau Communities First Partnership, Bridgend County Borough Council’s Arts and Community Development Department, Sustrans, Theatr na n’Og, The Wales Council for Voluntary Action, Bridgend Beekeepers Association and the National Society of Allotments and Leisure Gardeners.

All of the groups involved have been working as part of a creative community in Caerau to give a practical dimension to the themes explored in the play, to help educate the children involved with learning through play and to link with further planned community regeneration projects in Caerau and Maesteg.


For further details, please call ,Guy O’Donnell, Bridgend County Borough Council Arts Projects Officer, mob: 07977 119 074 or email@: arts@bridgend.gov.uk.
