There was something different to walking along Aberavon Promenade on Good Friday afternoon: an electric atmosphere was building as hundreds of people headed to the furthest end of the promenade. It was to be the first of a weekend of events as part of The Passion, a play of enormous proportions.
Last w/end,s performance of the Passion was absolutly INCREDIBLE;Thank you a million times to all those who were involved in it .
Anyone who did not see and experience it will forever have an empty space in their lives

We set ourselves the task of making a film in 36 hours and we almost completed it. I boarded the trian for Prestatyn at the 5.10 thinking about the two days ahead. I'd been prepping for the workshops but couldn't be too specific because, as is often the case, individuals in the group possessed different skills.
From speaking to the (genuinely…Continue
