A Presentation of the book a ‘Mansion for Miners’ opened our extremely well supported 90th Anniversary Concert on September 24th 2016. Several years research by Kathryn Ellis and her colleague Peter Bolton both Senior members of the History department at Glyndwr University and translated by Gareth Pritchard Hughes, have produced this well presented factual Story of the Stiwt. It removes some of the doubts and myths but also catalogues the major success stories along with the pitfalls, the struggles and pride of our visionary fore fathers. The wheel has turned full circle several times and bears so much resemblance to today’s efforts to keep this wonderful building full of amazing resources for the benefit of our unique community. To see so much talent manifest itself together on one historical occasion makes the effort so relevant to today’s society. The next series of photographs simply chronicles those individuals and groups who so kindly gave of their services free of charge to provide a superb evening of music on this Historical occasion. In these days of austerity the fight goes on to preserve the vision and aims, the envy of many, to nurture the many talents of future generations. We welcome any support be it financial or practical . Why not join the friends, ask for details at the Stiwt Office 01978 841300 Copies of the book (which was sold out on the night) will be available at the Stiwt soon priced at £10. An ideal Christmas Gift.
