Town's new Centenary Square has its first outing

* An African dancer invites two young ladies from
the crowd to join him in some action in the new Centenary Square.  

Llangollen's newly-completed Centenary Square was used for the first time this afternoon (Wednesday) by performers from the Eisteddfod.

The prestige facility at the corner of Castle Street and Bridge Street had only just been finished by contractors when it was tried out by dance groups from Africa and India.

Members of the public gathered round to watch the performances and some of them were invited to take part in the action, including town crier Chem and a group from the Town Council.

Over at St Collen's Church the day's free @One concert featured the Calgary Girls Choir and - on their country's Independence Day - the New Jersey Youth Chorus.

Meanwhile, on the Eisteddfod field a key attraction was the tenth annual Inclusion Project.

Facilitated by a grant from the ScottishPower Foundation, the performance to reflect the diversity of society and the International Eisteddfod’s ethos of promoting understanding and acceptance though music and dance.

This year the participating groups weree Ysgol Tir Morfa, a community special school in Rhyl that caters for pupils aged 3 – 19 years with a wide range of additional learning needs, specialist school St Christopher’s in Wrexham, Derwen on Tour (DOT), a group of  creative studies students from Derwen College, Gobowen, Ysgol Plas Brondyffryn from Denbigh, North Wales’ regional centre for autism education, and the Theatretrain Regional Choir from Mold. 

* Indian dancers try out the square as a large crowd looks on.

* A group from the Town Council, including town crier Chem, celebrate the completion of their Centenary Square project by joining the Indian dance group.
