Everyone is invited to a 'Pilgrims Welcome' on 8 May at 3pm in Pembrokeshire's smallest city of St Davids! Join a procession led by a giant St David, Small World Theatre's new articulated puppet and choirs singing music with an international flavour arranged by Span Arts. The party will greet Ancient Connections' Creative Camino artists as they complete the last leg of their pilgrimage journey.
Ancient Connections commissioned four performing artists to join a Creative Camino pilgrimage. Artists Ailsa Richardson, Suzi McGregor, Bonnie Boux and Kate Powell are making the journey from Ferns to St Davids on foot. They will be trialing the new 145 km trans-national pilgrimage route from Ferns, Co. Wexford to St Davids, Pembrokeshire which is being developed by the British Pilgrimage Trust.
The artist-pilgrims will set off on their journey on Sunday 1 May with a spectacular community festival in Ferns, Co. Wexford; incorporating a lantern parade, costumes and a world premiere performance of a traditional Celtic music piece. They reach their destination on Sunday 8 May where they will be given a glorious Pembrokeshire welcome by the giant St David. The artists will respond creatively to the stories, landscapes and people they encounter in short performances in the grounds of St Davids Cathedral.
The event is FREE. Please join the artists and the giant at Cross Square Gardens, St Davids at 3pm for a procession into the grounds of St Davids Cathedral.
