Martyrs & the Arts

Martyrs to the Cause is proud to advise that the first children's arts day to celebrate some of the great players to have come from Merthyr Tydfil will take place at Brecon Road Infants School on 18th May.

The children will be helped by the award winning team from Pippins Designs to produce five panels celebrating the football heritage of our town, the players to be honoured on canvas by the young artists will be Chris Holvey, Dai Astley, Gordon Davies, Mark Pembridge, Bryn Jones, John Charles and Moses Russell. The children have also decided to include current Wales star Aaron Ramsey in the panel to be retained by the school for display.

The Trust is very grateful for the financial support of the Merthyr Branch of the GMB Union for its aid to our community arts project, without their valuable support this event would not be possible.
