Local star inspires Welsh learners at Brecon Beacons College with surprise visit

Welsh students at Brecon Beacons College were treated to a special surprise visit recently, from none other than Pobl Y Cwm star Richard Lynch!

The local actor, who plays Garry Monk in the hit Welsh series, talked with the group in Welsh throughout and candidly answered all questions thrown at him about his work and life, as they discussed his other roles in television and theatre which include Hinterland, The Hollow Crown and both Welsh and English versions of Shakespeare plays.

Students were also excited to hear more on his forthcoming role in the new series, “Un Bore Mercher” (Keeping Faith)!

Many thanks to Richard for his visit, bringing vibrancy and inspiration to the class – and to Brecon lecturer Simon New for making the visit possible!
