Presented by National Theatre Wales TEAM.

Developed from four years of conversations, and inspired by the 25th anniversary of the Sea Empress disaster, Go Tell the Bees is a film made by, with and for the people of Pembrokeshire that tells the story of our connection with the natural world and with each other.

There is a darkness on the horizon – something creeping closer which echoes a blackness that covered the land and the sea 25 years ago.

The bees, once our friends and confidantes, can sense the danger and are preparing to flee. Without them, the Earth’s ecosystem and our communities will crumble.

One small child with a special connection to the natural world senses the danger. Join him on an epic journey as he travels Pembrokeshire with just twenty-four hours to reconnect us with nature and with each other to help convince the bees to stay.

Go Tell the Bees is co-created by Naomi Chiffi, Di Ford, Sita Thomas and the people of Pembrokeshire

Sea Empress 25 is a film by Gavin Porter, made in collaboration with Postcards and Podcasts.

Sea Empress 25

Time is punctured by moments. Moments that change things. Moments that make us stop.

8.07pm on the night of the 15th of February, 1996, was one of these moments. 25 years on, the Sea Empress oil spill is still fresh in the memory of Pembrokeshire.

From surfers to fishermen, oil refinery workers to ship captains, conservationists to politicians, hear the personal stories from the people who were there. With dream-like visuals and atmospheric music from Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci’s John Lawrence, Sea Empress 25 tells the story of an environmental disaster whose impact is still felt today.

At the heart of Go Tell the Bees is the hope that by doing we can learn from each other, we can build confidence and skills and that we can experience through all of the senses. We want this production to have a positive impact on communities.

Learning in an active and imaginative way is critical to this.
