Movie time will take place from 1:30 – 3:00 p.m. This year we will be showing “Y Syrcas” – “The Circus”. It’s a charming and heart-warming tale of a visit in the mid-19th Century by a travelling circus to Tregaron, in west Wales. The exotic circus folk and their animals are a source of amazement and delight for the local children, and something of a challenge to the adults steeped in religion and superstition. Legend has it that Jwmbi, the circus elephant, was laid to rest behind the town’s Talbot Hotel in 1848.
