We've been incredibly busy casting for our mythological characters - thank you Theatre Clwyd for your expertise. We have our first rehearsal tomorrow evening. We also had a fabulous launch event with the local tourism businesses, movers and shakers in NE Wales Tourism and some cracking polititions. Now thats not said very often! But i have to say Lord Elis-Thomas was incredibly articulate and definately seemed to understand the reasons why we have developed MythFest. Even spoke about his passion and connection with the landscape of his home and the imprtance of us communicating that sense of hiraeth (sense of place) to visitors and potential visitors as well as embracing it within our communities. He went on to talk about how this would contribute positively to well being and mental health. Wise insight and totally in tune with our motivations.
David Hanson MP also attended the launch and along with ~Hannah Blythin MP showed great support for our event. In fact i recieved a letter from David Hanson MP following the launch:
