    Default Liverpool Welsh Capital of Culture events

    Wales watch
    Feb 23 2008 by Catherine Jones, Liverpool Echo

    EIGHT days of cultural celebrations marking the Welsh influence on Liverpool start next weekend.


    ADVERTISING




    Singer and broadcaster Aled Jones will join the Welsh Choral Union and RLPO to mark St David’s Day at the Philharmonic Hall on March 1 and begin the festivities.

    The events include a bilingual service at St Nicholas’s church on Sunday, March 2, a folk culture lecture at the Friends Meeting House in School Lane, on Monday, March 3, and a talk on the history of Welsh people in Liverpool at the Athenaeum on Friday, March 7. The week will end with a St David’s Day dinner at the Adelphi on Saturday March 8.

    Meanwhile on Wednesday March 5, an evening of “rhymes and rhythm” takes place at the Bethel Welsh Presbyterian church in Heathfield Road, Wavertree.

    The evening features the national poet of Wales, Professor Gwyn Thomas, Liverpudlian Anglo-Welsh poet Dr Deryn Rees-Jones, and Welsh triple harpist, Liverpudlian Robin Huw Bowen.

    Arthur Thomas, from the Bethel church, said: “Professor Thomas is one of the most prolific poets in Wales today. He writes in Welsh but his themes are global and will be translated for those who do not speak the language.

    “Dr Deryn Rees-Jones is a senior lecturer in English at Liverpool university and has recently been voted one of the 20 best poets of the next generation by the Poetry Book Society.”

    The evening starts at 7.30pm and entry is £5.

    The Welsh have had a presence in Liverpool for hundreds of years.

    Details of all the events and ticket prices are available by visiting the website www.liverpool-welsh.co.uk/cc2008.htm

    Meet at 2PM at Victoria Monument in Derby Square on Saturday 1st March. Cost £3. I hope to cover the importance of chapel, Welsh builders, Eisteddfods in Liverpool, Little Wales, The Welsh bonesetters, Owen Owen and Sir Alfred Lewis - that's if I get my finger out and get writing!

    Don't forget T J Hughes shop as well. Also not every Welsman worshipped in a chapel. Remember St David's Church of England church, Brownlow Hill's services were all in Welsh and several other Church of England churches ran some services in Welsh eg St Paul's

    Not seen anything on the internet. I once attended a talk about the history of T J Hughes shop. Their present one in London Rd was once owned by Owen Owen. T J Hughes had a smaller shop on London Rd nearer the town centre. If you contact the company, they should be able to help you with the store's history.

    This overtly displays the Liverpool Welsh connections. The Welsh virtually built Bootle.

    The Little Wales plaque is on the right of Pall Mall, as you head out of town (North of Leeds Street junction). I only noticed it as I was looking at the former 'Liverpool Warehousing Co.' buildings.
    A Google search states it was put up as recently as August last year:

    I'll have to go down and have a good look - I didn't notice it last time I was there so I probably need to go further down.

    Default Welsh chapels

    Travelling around north Wales and Anglesey, I have seen some curious looking churches.

    I have borrowed Quincy's L'pool dock rd silo photo to show how the silo reminds me of a church in Amlwch - does anyone know anything about the strange shape of these churches ? (well I think they are an unusual shape for a church)

    The first photo was taken in Ruthin. The black & white picture of Amlwch I found on the internet.

    hi lindylou, well i have found the one in amlwch, it's roman catholic, it's called our lady star of the sea. omg that took me ages.
    any way it has something to do with the thetis a submarine built in cammell laird's.
    she had her first sea trial on the 4th march 1939.
    she sank during trails on the 1st june 1939 with the loss of 99 lives. how sad is that.
    a full naval funeral with all honors was held, so maybe at the church,
    well she was salvaged, repaired, and recommisined as h.m.s.thunderbolt.
    she was then lost with all hands on march 4th 1943.
    any way i hope this helps.
    debbie
    im not very good with p.c.'s otherwise i would have put all the link's up
    but if you on wikipedia it'll tell you everything about the thetis

    Default "Ugly House"

    I took this in 1988. Known as 'Ty Hyll' in Welsh, it can be found on the A5 at Capel Curig. When I used to go to Wales as a kid we would always pass it.

    Info can be found here:
