CWRW, CHIPS A DARLITH DEG- Come see, come see, come see!Llanofer Hall TONIGHT!!!

Although it is primarily a Welsh language production, the English language is intertwined throughout, therefore let this not be a barrier to those non Welsh speakers. (See below details for Welsh learner sessions before the show)…
