Rona Campbell, Peter Read, Chris Bawden performing David of the Mines at Parc Penallta,Ystrad Mynach.

Performance of ‘David of the Mines’ in Ystrad Mynach

‘David of the Mines ‘ is the  prize winning, narrative poem by Rona

Campbell, that won the Sotheby’s International Poetry Competition.

The poem tells the story of a six year old child coal miner, in  Ebbw

Vale in Victorian Times.  In this extraordinary performance it came

home to its roots because it was performed on a slag heap in Parc

Penallta.  The actors were:  the author Rona Campbell; Peter Read the

famous Welsh actor;  and West End actor Chris Bawden. The

performance was  sponsored by Caerphilly Council and Wales’ ‘Night ‘

Out Scheme.’  It was  a ‘Grown in Wales Production.’
