ZULU royalty, musicians and dancers are all in Powys this week for events including a fabulous musical stage show.

King Goodwill Zwelithwi’s visit to Wales is celebrated with a Welsh concert at Brecon Cathedral on Monday, July 22, at 7.30pm.

The concert will feature Brecon Male Voice Choir and harpist Emily Haris, and will be compered by Sir Tim Ackroyd.

It is followed on Tuesday and Wednesday nights by performances of 'King Cetshwayo: The Musical' performances at Theatr Brycheiniog.

The Jerry Pooe musical is about the life of the Zulu king and tells the story of the Zulu nation’s fight against British colonialism, the Anglo-Zulu wars, King Cetshwayo’s subsequent capture and his visit to London and meeting with Queen Victoria in London.

The vibrant and colourful production is performed by over 20 artistes as well as live musicians from South Africa, and combines theatre, film and traditional Zulu and Shembe dance movements.

'King Cetshwayo the Musical' is produced by the Wushwini Pan African Centre for Arts and Culture and Eager Artists.

Tickets for the shows are available from the theatre box office on 01874 611622 or online at www.brycheiniog.co.uk.

Until July 28, the theatre gallery is also showing 'Brecon Welcomes the Zulus', an exhibition in which local artists and photographers recall the celebrations of King Goodwill’s 2017 visit.
