The cupboard is bare. Much of that lovely technical equipment; ipods, cameras, microphones etc....that we use for our shows, R and Ds, Assembly, WalesLab and that we lend to people for their own projects has left the building for lots of really good reasons, but has not returned yet. I am sure that they have got lost on the way back, but we miss them terribly and would like them to come home.
Please look in your drawers, your garages, under…Continue

I've recently discovered The Poetry Storehouse - where noted contemporary poets offer up their work to be "remixed" by composers, filmmakers, actors, etc. Jolly fun.

I’ve joined the NTW Communications Team for the next four months. This makes me super excited because the freelance thing is a big new adventure for me. Having worked at The Riverfront in Newport for seven years…Continue

Of recent days, we’ve had a number of requests in the Seren Pop-Up Shop for ‘The Long Walk to Freedom’ by Nelson Mandela. I usually say, ‘Although of course he was secretly Welsh, we don’t stock his book.’
Plucking the title off my own shelves at home, I am reminded of how an early version of this memoir was smuggled out of Robben Island prison camp, where Mandela was…Continue

It never ceases to amaze me how much only a few miles north in Britain can alter the sunrise and sunset in Britain; it's darker that bit earlier and lighter that bit later in the run-up to the solstice as we settle in to our North Yorkshire section of our Christmas tour. This only serves to make everything just that bit more Christmassy; they do Christmas well up here. A great night in Knaresborough last night, thanks to all concerned. Four more shows to go...

Tuesday 26th of November I attended Script Slam at The Sherman Theatre as part of the 40th Birthday celebrations. Script Slam exhibited nine new original Welsh plays over the course of three days, all keeping a theme of anniversary to coincide with The Shermans’ celebration party.
Fortunately I was able to catch the first evening to which we were treated to three pieces of work; GM written by Neil Walden, Together written by Neil Bebber and A Very Modern Office…
Why is it that so many people these days don't like poetry? I've seen you! The blank stare. The visible wince. The outright sneer.
I sometimes unearth a primal trauma. The sadistic nun who would whack your wrist with a wooden ruler when you failed to memorise Wordsworth's 'Daffodils'; the GCSE question on Carol Ann Duffy that utterly flummoxed you out of the A*, the annoying boyfriend at Uni who could recite Shakespeare's sonnet 'Shall I compare thee to a Summer's Day' who then…Continue
