Remembering the Armistice Centenary in Llanystumdwy

Date: 30/10/2018

On Saturday 10 November 2018 The Friends of the Lloyd George Museum will be remembering Armistice Day in Llanystumdwy.

David Lloyd George, who was raised in Llanystumdwy, was the Prime Minister at the time and he was the one that told the nation that the war had come to an end on 11 November 1918.

To mark this historical event in Lloyd George’s career and in the history of Europe and the World, the Friends of the Museum have arranged that the poet, musician and a resident of Llanystumdwy, Twm Morys, will deliver Lloyd George’s words from 100 years ago.

Twm’s rendition of Lloyd George’s words will lead to a minute of silence, followed by a description of how the village of Llanystumdwy reacted to the news a century ago.

Megan Cynan Corcoran, Gwynedd Council Museums and Volunteer Co-ordinator, said: “Having Twm Morys recite the words of Lloyd George will bring them to life once more, and allow us to imagine the impact they must have had on the nation one hundred years ago.

“It’s great that the Lloyd George Museum will be playing an important part in remembering the Armistice Centenary, and to ensure that we do not lose our connection with the past.”

Entry to the Lloyd George Museum will be free on the day between 10:00 and 16:00 in order to give everybody the opportunity to enjoy the Museum and Highgate, the house where Lloyd George was raised.
