Perceptions by Flight Wings Rhydyfelin


On the 29th of October in Rhydyfelin Methodist Church at 7pm our 16+ Rhydyfelin Flight Wings Group will be performing their latest piece, ‘Perceptions’.

They are a group of mixed abilities a real testament to the support and respect of the young people is how encouraging and creative they are as a group.  They all help each other to achieve their best and thats why this piece of theatre is particularly special.  Gemma has been working with this group of young people over the last year to tell their stories of how people perceive them and others within society.

The piece explores themes such as poverty, homelessness and disability and they have used their own experiences to help devise this piece of beautiful theatre.

The Church itself isn’t huge so we are asking that people book tickets to avoid disappointment.  All tickets are free for this event.  The Church is located on Poplar Road, CF37 5LS

When the Crow Cries

When the Crow CriesYou are invited to the Soar Centre for the book launch of When the Crow Cries, the debut novel of local author Maxine Ridge.

What would you do if you found a doorway to another world?
When Robyn becomes friends with Victoria, James and Elliot they show her how to reach higher and further than she could ever imagine.
The greatest adventure of their lives.
But something darker is stirring in the other world. It’s getting harder to leave.
Breaking the barriers across time and space may be fun at first, but the key to get back is lost and they can’t get home until that moment When the Crow Cries.

Raised in the Rhondda, Maxine Ridge was a Youth Theatre member with ArtWorks, Valleys Kids. She is delighted to return to Soar Chapel, where she spent much of her childhood, to celebrate the launch of her debut novel, a fantasy adventure for teenagers that explores the boundaries of time and space, innocence and experience.
