Four in a row – students victorious in this year’s Stomp
11 June 2015
A Stomp was held between students and staff from the School of Welsh on Wednesday June 10th. Held at The Crwys pub, Rhys Iorwerth and Osian Rhys Jones acted as masters of ceremonies for the evening.
The competition was strong and enthusiastic between the high achieving teams.
The big winner was student Sara Jones, who was crowned 'Poet of the Night' while Dr Llŷr Gwyn Lewis from the staff team won the small crown for best poem chosen by the masters of ceremonies.
Gwenllian Huws won the audience prize and she was presented with the Stomp pineapple.
Beyond the individual wins, it was the audience that had the final word and for the fourth time in a row gave overall victory to the student team. Will they be able to make it five times in a row win 2016?
The evening also presented the opportunity to congratulate and celebrate the successes of Dr Llŷr Gwyn Lewis and Rhys Iorwerth (a former student) at the recent Book of the Year Awards. Considering the quality of entries in last night's Stomp, the School tradition of fostering new literary talents looks set to continue.
