Bickering Bishops

Last summer, we started collecting the recollections and memories that people had of the park and palace over the decades. These recollections will be kept and shared on the ‘People’s Collection Wales’ website once our volunteers have finished transcribing and translating them.

As part of the ’15 Minute Digital Heritage’ project, funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, a group of young people came together to create a short film based on the stories that had been collected. The group got the chance to learn about storyboarding, script writing and all aspects of filming over 6 busy days at the end of the summer holidays. They produced a spoof comedy horror based on the last three bishops to live at the palace. Many thanks to Akron Film Production and the actors who took part. Thanks also to our volunteer, Dilys, who was game enough to be a part of the fun! Many thanks also to Carmarthenshire Museum, who were partners in the project and allowed the indoor scenes to be filmed inside the Old Palace.

We hope you enjoy watching ‘Bickering Bishops’!
