Bendigeidfran at OrchardFest2019
The People’s Orchard is an environmental project with the aim of supporting biodiversity; promoting horticultural skills; and maintaining existing orchards. By Saturday 7th September a large number of apples had been harvested, many had been juiced and a lot had been made into cider. So what should be done with all this bounty on a sunny afternoon in St Dogmaels?
Well it would have been rude not to have invited Bendigeidfran from The Mabinogi, along with friends from the Small World Theatre, to speak at the event. With a deep, booming voice Bendigeidfran, or Brân the Blessed (not Brian Blessed, please try to pay attention), warned the festival-goers about the effects of global warning. He said that villages in Pembrokeshire had been lost before due to rising sea levels and the same could happen again.
