Students victorious again in annual Stomp

27 October 2016

A fun-filled evening was had at the Old Library/Yr Hen Lyfrgell on Monday 10 October 2016, with a poetry Stomp held between students and staff from the School of Welsh.

Dr Llŷr Gwyn Lewis and Gruffudd Eifion Owen were the masters of ceremony.

The competition was fierce and the quality of the literary compositions was excellent, from the serious to the sensitive, funny and entertaining. However, it was the student team that came out on top, for the fifth time in a row, by the end of the evening.

In addition to the student team’s victory, this year’s individual prizes were also won by students. Gethin Davies was crowned Poet of the Night while Sara Anest won the Tiara for Best Lyrical Poem. Caeo Harri Hughes was presented with the illustrious Stomp pineapple for the best limerick from an audience member.

Congratulations to everyone who took part and to the students for another resounding victory. Will they be able to maintain the standard next year?

The evening was a huge success and in addition to the fun, more than £100 was raised towards the Cardiff National Eisteddfod in 2018. Throughout the year, the School of Welsh will host a number of other events and activities to raise money towards the Eisteddfod.
