So You Think You’ve Got it Bad? A Kid’s Life in a Medieval Castle

Hay Festival 2023, 

Would you like to live next to a poo-filled moat, be stuck in a siege or eat live blackbird pie? No? Then you’ll be glad you don’t live in a medieval castle! Step into the past with Chae Strathie, author of the So You Think You’ve Got it Bad? series, in this must-see event for everyone with a passion for horrible history. You’ll be fascinated (and sometimes grossed out) by his hilarious introduction to medieval times packed with songs, dancing and drawing. You might also get a sneak peek at some of the fabulous facts from Chae’s soon-to-be-released A Kid’s Life as a Viking

Teaching materials for this event can be found here

Hoffech chi fyw wrth ymyl ffos llawn budred, bod yn sownd mewn gwarchae neu fwyta pastai adar duon byw? Na? Os felly, byddwch yn falch nad ydych chi’n byw mewn castell canoloesol! Camwch i’r gorffennol gyda Chae Strathie, awdur y gyfres So You Think You’ve Got it Bad?, yn y digwyddiad anhygoel hwn i bawb sydd ag angerdd am hanes hyll. Cewch eich cyfareddu (ac weithiau eich ffieiddio) gan ei gyflwyniad doniol i’r oesoedd canol sy’n llawn caneuon, dawnsio a darlunio. Efallai cewch gipolwg hefyd ar rai o’r ffeithiau ffantastig gan Chae yn A Kid’s Life as a Viking sydd ar fin cael ei ryddhau...
