Cwmni Mega presents Patagonia Aberystwyth Arts Centre
Monday 24 – Tuesday 25 November, 2014

Cwmni Mega present Patagonia, a Christmas show on board the epic voyage of the Mimosa ship carrying the first Welsh settlers in Patagonia, at Aberystwyth Arts Centre Monday 24 and Tuesday 25 November.


They give an insight of their journey and their struggle to settle under extreme circumstances in a far-away country. In 2015, Cwmni Mega celebrate 150 years since this particular mythical voyage to the port of Madryn in South Argentina.

This show is a great opportunity to educate young children in Wales of this unique, historic event.

Many well-known names from this period appear in this show. Amongst these are, Lewis Jones (Lewis Trelew) and his beautiful daughter, Princess Elen. A Spaniard will create problems with his strict rules whilst the Welsh will gain support, respect and friendship from the native Indians the Tehuelches.

We will also have an insight of their culture and traditions, Land of Andes and all of its amazing animals at the Guanacos, Armadillos and the mountain lion, the Puma.

This show will be full of colourful music and dance, excitement and tension, goodness and mischief with love winning the day. Its purpose is to thrill and entertain young children, and by doing this, educate them about the history of establishing the Colony in 1865.
