Practically a full – and lively! – house for our afternoon screening of children’s cartoons on Tuesday.

We showed many of the classic cartoons that were made in Wales during the 1980’s and 90’s, including Superted and  Sam Tân (Fireman Sam) and of course owr own Jerry the Tyke, from the 1920’s.

Jerry first appeared on screen before the era of sound and we were delighted to welcome Stephen Briggs who came in to provide piano accompaniment in the original style.

Today there are more Welsh language children’s cartoons than ever, many of them to be seen on S4C’s children’s service ‘Cyw’, but the experience of coming to a cinema to see them along with other children will always remain special, I’m sure.
