Abstract: This article discusses a visit by Cor Rhos, a Welsh Male-voice choir to Franco's Spain as guests of the regime's department in charge of 'Education and Leisure'. The article explores how this visit provides an early illustration of changes in Franco's foreign policy towards Britain and the United States in the aftermath of the Second World War. The article examines the paradox that the visit was defined, from the Welsh perspective, as an opportunity to extend the hand of peace and goodwill for the interntational fraternity of workers, whilst from the viewpoint of the Spanish regime, it provided a bifold propogandistic opportunity - to project a vision of a flourishing economy on the international stage, whillst simultaneously reinforcing its image of a cultural, benevolent, outward looking regime in the domestic context.
