My first offering to the statue of Aneurin Bevan at the top of Queen Street, Cardiff, will be a selection of family images of myself, my sister, brother and classmates, dressed for St. David's Day celebrations. It is a tradition which is still upheld in all schools across Wales. Through my involvement in Welsh language education over the past three years, I too have regularly wore my Welsh Lady Costume. I was sent one by my father after my controversial performance in 2010 'Gwisg Cenhinen'. It is a vintage, handmade Welsh Wool Costume that he was given by a lady in Glynneath.
