Our latest Wales Millennium Centre production Es & Flo features a lesbian couple who met at the Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp.
To correspond with the production, we have several fantastic events arranged by Greenham Women Everywhere and Scary Little Girls which highlight the impact of Greenham and tell stories by the people who were there.

This session will begin with a chat about the impact of Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp by Greenham child Rebecca Mordan, followed by craftivism and cake as we create a space for the change we want to see in the world! The craftivism activities will include contributing to a local banner and making radical badges.
A Talk with Ann and Sally Bell
2 May, 6pm – 6.15pm, Glanfa
Ann was a PhD student when she first went to Greenham and Sally was an American citizen living in the UK. They met at the peace camp, living permanently at Orange Gate between 1983 and 1985, and later married. Come and hear them chat to Rebecca Mordan about their Greenham experiences.
Bread & Roses
2 May 6.15pm – 6.45pm, Glanfa
Bread & Roses are a feisty vocal trio who sing songs of love, hope and endurance in luscious a cappella harmony.
The group was founded by the renowned folk singer and winner of the English Folk Dance and Song Society’s (EFDSS) Gold Badge Award 2018, and president and founder of the Natural Voice Network, Frankie Armstrong. She will be joined by Pauline Down and Laura Bradshaw – performers, community musicians and songwriters from south Wales.
Some of the songs they will be performing feature on Frankie's latest album which was named The Guardian’s folk album of the month in 2021.
Their hope is to communicate power, tenderness and fun through their songs, involving the audience both as listeners and sometimes joiners-in.
