Farewell Innocence – Streamed Storytelling

Adaptation of Farewell Innocence by William Glynne-Jones.


Abridged and read by Alun Gibbard.

This is the colourful story of fictional West Wales town, Abermôr, and the tinworks at the heart of the community. It’s the warm telling of a young man’s hopes and dreams in hard times.  

A rare opportunity to hear the unique work of long forgotten Llanelli author, William Glynne-Jones. The readings will be streamed across seven episodes every Wednesday and Sunday night at 7pm until 16th December.

Farewell Innocence  “… underlines the values embodied in the communities that have produced us and remind us, and those who will come after us, who we are and how we belong the one to the other” Huw Lawrence.
