On Saturday 21 June, at 11.00 in the National Waterfront Museum, John Ashley will give an illustrated talk on the visit of Buffalo Bill’s Wild West to Swansea in 1903.
The Wild West was a spectacle and a logistical marvel, hardly rivalled even today. Learn about the show, the personalities – and how to shift a 20,000 seat stadium, 800 men and women, and 600 horses overnight to give two shows a day, every day, in different towns!
The talk is sponsored by the Swansea Branch of the Historical Association. Admission is free, all are welcome. Please check firearms at the door.
A big thank you to everyone for making Saturday’s Living History event at the Hafod Copperworks such a big success!
The weather was kind to us and we had a fantastic turn out from local people, colleagues and friends. I have received very positive and warm comments so thank you to everyone for making the day a success and good fun.
The Hafod site is now entering the next phase of development and the ongoing, and future, Connected Communities projects continue to develop and flourish. As ever, onwards and upwards!
Very best wishes,
Connected Communities is delighted to promote and support the Living History Festival at the Hafod-Morfa Copperworks on June 14th 2014.
