6 December marks 80 years since Ruperra Castle was gutted by fire during WW2. Join us for an hour-long drama on the evening of Thursday 9 December, sharing both the sad and funny aspects of that time.
Cwmni Cwm Ni (Our Valley) a Rhymney Valley based theatre group who work in both English and Welsh, have dramatised some of the recollections of wartime soldiers and local people. This hour-long drama/documentary records both the sad and the funny aspects of the story and will be performed in English.
The drama is being held in Machen United Services Club, a venue which soldiers stationed at Ruperra Castle used to walk to for entertainment.
Doors open at 19:30, drama starts at 20:00, the bar will remain open after the performance finishes at 21:00 and there will be a 1940's tea dance with light wartime refreshments being served.
Due to Covid guidance for theatre performances, guests will be asked to show proof they are either fully vaccinated using a Covid pass, or evidence of a negative Covid test in the last 48 hours.
Tickets are £6 (£5 for concessions) and there are a limited number available.
