Cyfle i aelodau TEAM! Gallwch chi fod y cyntaf i weld ‘Tide Whisperer’.

Rydym yn falch iawn i'w gynnig tocynnau am ddim i aelodau TEAM i'r rhagolwg 'Tide Whisperer' sioe newydd National Theatre Wales.

NHS70: As Long as the Heart Beats Workshops

Spent two fabulous days working with composer Tic Ashfield and NTW collecting heart beats from patients and staff in the main outpatients department at the Royal Gwent Hospital, in Newport, this week! Over 50 people donated their heart beats which will now appear in the music for the show 'As Long as the Heart Beats' on the 21st and 22nd of July in the very place the heart beats were recorded. What a lovely way to get people involved in new music to celebrate the NHS.

It was a little help that I already knew some people around from university but everybody was incredibly welcoming and friendly,…
