Blaengarw Panto, A Good Night Out!

Alan Harris and I attended Blaengarw's Panto, Jack and the Beanstalk, Rise of the Gobbler.

I haven't attended a Panto since I was little so it was refreshing to have Cyber Men, The Joker, talking vegetables, Del and Rhodney and Darleks in the same production and not get confused by it all. Admittedly there were moments were I didn't have a clue what was going on, but that was the fun of it!

There was an impressive Blodwyn the cow who had to be sold when the President of the… Continue

Blaengarw Panto

Hello, I took a break from re-drafting A Good Night in the Valleys: Go As You Please to go to the panto at Blaengarw Institute tonight and it was brilliant. It was glorious and truly bonkers. It’s the first time I’ve seen a blow up doll, George W Bush and Mother Earth in a panto and it contained a hilarious version of Flash Dance. It was Jack and the Beanstalk, by the way, and me and intern Hannah stayed to do the World In Union dance at the end. Will blog a bit more about the first draft and… Continue

A December Visit

From my research notes from December's visit:

Porthmadog, on The Cob, looking towards the mountains.

The arrival of the sky.

The whole sky (the clouds, the light, the mist, the breaks where the blue shows through) moving inland. What are clouds to begin with become ground mist as they reach high ground. Haze clouds hang still over the low tree covered slopes. The sky is mirrored in the marsh water.

The arrival of the sky. The arrival of later’s…
