Archive of the month

The Archive of the Month feature raises awareness amongst students and staff about the variety of material that we hold. In particular, the old Bangor photographs appear to spark a lot of interest and debate on the University’s Facebook pages.

Every month, an item is selected to be showcased. The item is scanned and a short piece of text written about its history.

Theatre Gwynedd Christmas Programme, 1987-1988


The Christmas show for that year was ‘Codi Stêm’ - a Hwyl a Fflag production written by Gwen Ellis and Gruffudd Jones. Hwyl a Fflag was a theatre company that ran from 1981 to 1995 and which was based in the Tabernacl Chapel in Bangor from 1983 to 1992.


The programme also reveals that in that year Cwmni Whare Teg were on tour with the pantomime ‘Jiw Jiw Jeifin Jenkins’ and Bangor Panto Co. were performing ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’
