The guest speaker at the next lecture organised by the Llanelli Worker’s Educational Association (WEA) on Thursday evening (March 25) is a man who needs no introduction.
Broadcaster and author Huw Edwards was brought up in Llangennech. The 61-year-old is the main news presenter on the BBC and regularly presents showpiece outside broadcasts.
The event is the WEA’s annual Welsh language lecture.
The lecture title will be – Trwy Ofer Esgeulustod – Argyfwng eglwysi a chapeli Cymru – Through Wasteful Neglect – the Crisis of Welsh churches and chapels.
Simultaneous translation facilities will be available.
The lecture will be at the Selwyn Samuel Centre in Llanelli and will start at 7.30pm.
WEA spokesman Ruth Price said: “We know that Huw has made a substantial study of the decline of chapels and churches, and speaks passionately and knowledgeably on the subject.
“As always, there will be time for Q&A after the lecture.
“We get a substantial crowd in attendance when we are so fortunate as to have Huw provide our talk. We will probably be back in the Lliedi Suite of the Selwyn Samuel Centre, but, if not, the talk will be in the bar instead.
“As usual, doors will be open from 7pm, with the lecture commencing at 7.30pm. We hope you will join us in a drink to support the venue after the lecture.
“Please tell your friends and family about this event and feel free to share details on your social media platforms – WEA Llanelli lectures are free to all, and everyone is welcome.”
