About November's lecture
Ms Chloe Sawyer
FIESTA, FESTIVALS AND CELEBRATIONS OF MEXICO
Mexico has a vast range of visually splendid festivals, many featuring lavish processions and masked dances with richly decorated costumes. After the Spanish conquests of 1521, priests used theatrical representation as the method of instruction. Traditionally there are very elaborate nativity scenes in Mexican homes and the Christmas story is acted out in towns and villages; adults and children perform as shepherds and shepherdesses, hermits and devils. Other important celebrations include All Saints’ Day, All Souls’ Day and Carnival.

Ynglŷn â Chymdeithas y Celfyddydau Caerdydd
Mae Cymdeithas y Celfyddydau Caerdydd wedi bod yn cwrdd yn rheolaidd yn Chapter ers blynyddoedd gyda'u cyfres o ddarlithoedd darluniadol poblogaidd a siaradwyr deallus a difyr. Ynghyd â'r darlithoedd, maen nhw hefyd yn cynnig digwyddiadau astudio undydd, ymweliadau addysg, a gwyliau diwylliannol sydd â'r nod o ddod â phobl sy'n chwilfrydig am y celfyddydau at ei gilydd. Gallwch ddysgu mwy ac ymuno â'r gymdeithas yma.
