Welcome to Cefnfab's
website. The aim is to introduce myself, through various aspects of my
life, such as my work, interest in Welsh culture and what influenced it.
From the time I was a Bevin Boy at
coal mine, through to my continued success in Welsh eisteddfodau,
entertaining South Wales’ club-land, my two marriages, seeking education
as a mature student, my role as a teacher / lecturer and touring the world
with my one man show - Wales, the Whole Year, Through the Eyes of
Dylan Thomas … it’s all here.
This site is
not merely for the sole purpose of introducing myself, but also in order
for the people of the world to be made more aware of Wales’ rich culture
and its customs. In sharing such information with others it can only
place the interest of Wales on a high pedestal. The language itself
is no obstacle when evaluating Welsh culture in its pure original form,
but rather a contribution towards its appreciation. People who do
not understand a word of Welsh are very often mesmerised by being in the
environment of an Eisteddfod. It is equally important for Welsh
speakers to be tolerant to non-Welsh speaking members of the audience by
explaining the procedure of various events, thus, in so doing it will
encourage such people to learn the language. It is advisable for
anyone who is in the vicinity of a Welsh cultural proceeding to
attend that gathering, for they need your support as much as you might
The spirit of
the latter words of introduction can hopefully be expressed within the
various sections of this website.
hope you enjoy the Cefnfab experience!
