Graveyard Voices - Cathays Cemetery

Part of the Being Human Festival

In partnership with Cardiff City Council, the University of South Wales has produced a range of public performance works across the city. Working closely with the Council’s Cemeteries and Bereavement Services, USW has brought ‘history to life’ with performers creating short scenes relating to the fascinating stories of the people buried in the Cemetery.

These events celebrate the Being Humanfestival. 

ProfessorRichard Hand, from the Faculty of Creative Industries at the University of South Wales, said: "The Being Human Festival is a wonderful initiative to show how university research in the UK is socially relevant and can have an impact on real people and real communities. We are extremely proud to have won a grant to take part and demonstrate our on-going outreach work with Cardiff city in a national festival context."
