2pm – 6pm
Carmarthen Town AFC, Richmond Park, Priory Street, Carmarthen SA31 1LR
Following the success of last years ‘Bake Off’ event, West Wales Shared Lives will again put on event this year to celebrate the great work undertaken by all our approved Shared Lives Carer families in the community.
This year is going to be something a little bit different and the event will take shape in the form of a twmpath and we really hope you’ll join us.
So… what is a twmpath?
Twmpath is a Welsh word literally meaning a hump or tump, once applied to the mound or village green upon which the musicians sat and played for the community to dance. Twmpath dawns were organised by Urdd Gobaith Cymru in the late 1950s and 1960s, a form of barn dance, for the entertainment of young people, mainly from rural areas. These events remained popular until the rise of discos in the 1970s. Twmpath is used today to mean a Welsh version of the barn dance or céilidh.
Above all else, a twmpath is going to be really good fun.
What else can you expect at the event?
Although an official schedule of events for the day is still to be determined, we can confirm that the twmpath will run from 2pm until 6pm and will be at Carmarthen Town Football Club.
There will also be:
- After a stellar musical performance at last years Bake Off event, we have made sure to invite the ‘Rattling Bog’ back to this years event to provide the musical entertainment throughout.
- A finger buffet consisting of chicken goujons, vegterian skewers, crostini, brushetta and a selection of sandwiches to name just a few items to replace those energy stocks after all that dancing.
The event will cost just £2 per person and this will be payable on entry to the event and we do ask that you let your SL Officer / the Shared Lives Office know your intentions of attending the event so that we can ensure we are catering for enough people.
