Ogmore MP and AM, Chris Elmore and Huw Irranca-Davies, took a step into the past at the Medieval Festival at St Cien’s Church, nestled in Llangeinor.

Swapping parliamentary debate for bows and arrows, the local duo had a fantastic time joining local residents for activities including historical re-enactments, lessons on medieval medicine, and talks about the history of the church.

Mr Elmore commented: “Many thanks to the local Mothers’ Union, all of the church volunteers, and everyone else who was involved in putting on this superb event. It was great to learn more about the cultural heritage of the area – the fancy dress was great too!”.

Dozens of residents from the surrounding Ogmore and Garw Valleys attended the event which also provided opportunities for local archers to practice their skills.

Mr Irranca-Davies added: “The beautiful medieval St Cein’s Church set on top of Llangeinor mountain is surrounded by stunning views. It was a delight to join in the Medieval Festival Day in such historic settings and we all had a great time watching the enactments and hearing about the history of the parish. A lot of hard work and organising had made a very enjoyable and fun afternoon”.
