Ed & Bill final system check before switch on

Town Cryer "God Safe the Queen"
The Celtica Radio Roadshow, June 1st 2002 at the very start of Queen Elizabeth the Seconds' Golden Jubilee celebrations at the historic coastal town of Llantwit Major.
Our thanks go out to the many dignitaries who assisted us on the day. Llantwit Major has an official "Town Crier" who obliged in providing Celtica Radio with a 'Local' News Service!
A Neolithic Man is our Engineer too! Oh Yeas! Oh Yeas! Oh Yeas! - Verily, Ye can Boogie on down!
Llantwit Major is an ancient beachside settlement with relics stretching back as far as the Neolithic period.
The Town Crier was indeed in good voice, and obliged in some impromptu singing, plus musical accompaniment to various tracks during the roadshow performance.
Fred Stacey interviews some new fans! Attention is turned back to the field.
This area was under the rule of the Romans for nearly 350 years, and a nearby excavation revealed an elaborate Roman Villa, complete with bathrooms and mosaic pathways, dating from the mid 2nd century.

Llantwit Majors Rugby Football field was the location for this first in the 2002 season of Summer Roadshows.

Thanks on behalf of the band, and hope we passed the audition! Fred Stacey, Bill Everatt and Ed Risby.
Royalty, and legends say, even the patron saint of Wales, St David himself, were attracted to the site. Many churches were established from here, and it became so renowned that it was used as a royal burial place.
However, Llantwit's main distinction dates from after the Romans had left, with the foundation of a monastery by St. Illtud in the late 5th century - indeed, Llantwit has the reputation of being one of the first places to establish Christianity in Britain.
