We're at THEATR POWYS tonight with 'GULLIVER' by Kit Lambert

Miss this production and you'll regret it! (an... almost... direct quote from many of our audience members!) If you're trying to avoid the vile weather and fancy drifting off to some 'alternative' worlds of tiny Lilliputians, enormous Brobdingnans, tiresome Yahoos and gentle talking horses.... book your ticket on 01597 824444 (or Where else can you be taken on such a journey for under a tenner? (Tickets £6/£4)

Excursionists part II : the pleasure-seekers

Here’s another gem from the 'Caernarvon and Denbigh Herald'.

‘On Friday last the natives of Barmouth were rather astonished by the arrival of excursion trains from Oswesrty, Welshpool, and Newton, bringing between 1000 and 1200 pleasure-seekers. The weather in the morning foreboded rain, but it fortunately cleared off, and the day was quite fine, so that all enjoyed themselves as their inclinations led them; and some betook themselves to the mountains, some to the beach, while others… Continue

Glafa Gig: BLYSH

Sometimes you just need to pull yourself up out of the winter gloom and inject a little sparkle into your life…

We reckon that this will do the trick. As the evening goes on the acts get a little naughtier, a little saucier and if we haven’t made you blush by the end of it, then we will hang up our glittery cat suits and retire……

The Excursionists (Amended)

Sian and I are coming to the end of an extremely productive development week here in Bermo and ‘For, Mountain, Sand & Sea’ is emerging! I shall reveal more in a summary blog of our excursion next week. In the mean time here’s a rather wonderful report taken from the Caernarvon and Denbigh Herald in 1871 (not the Barmouth Advertiser as stated yesterday).

‘BARMOUTH. EXCURSION. – On Saturday last from 900 to 1000 excursionists were brought here from Manchester, per the Great Western… Continue

Christmas Lights Switch On in Cardiff!

Last night I went down with Rhiannon to the streets next to City Hall to watch the Christmas Lights Switch On. After last year's event it seemed a bit low key and quiet. Well, I am comparing it to this video of the switch on being performed by Gavin & Stacey's Nessa and Bryn. Thanks Kaciemorgan99:…

Christmas Improv Jam

Its coming up to Christmas and we are all getting busier,

So lets make it more by making Cardiff more prettier.

Ludus Ludius' improv jam can happen when you like,

We'll suit the majority and it'll be fun like riding a bike.

If you don't like bikes and rather silliness and spontaneity,

Our jam will just be tasty and impulsively like a deity.

When would you come to this happening and event?

What date suits you? As you're the important cement.

Is the… Continue

The Launch Weather Report reccie and backup videos

The 1 minute weather report you watched, live from Snowdon, during our launch was the result of a long search for a spot with internet connection.

We did find a miraculous 2 meters square area up where my dongle connected and it really worked live on 05.11.09.

We shot some backup videos though as we were not sure the connection would hold, but it did, so here is what you've… Continue

Travelling Light II

One Writer’s Journey whilst Travelling Light.

Travelling Light Festival of New Writing, Aberystwyth Arts Centre, 16th & 19th November

I was delighted to get the phone call from Aberystwyth Arts Centre, just before Christmas 2008, to say that I’d been accepted onto Travelling Light II because I’m eager to learn and master the craft of playwrighting and the prospect of mentoring felt like very welcome assistance. I’m widely published as a poet, and, perhaps because many of my… Continue
