Well here we are, just a week to go before the winners of the Anglesey Festival 2014 Offshoots go to compete in the British Finals at the Gaiety Theatre Isle of Man with their play After The Flags and Bands. Nerves beginning to jangle but what an achievement to be in the top six in the UK!
The Gaiety is a fantastic venue and the cast and crew are all looking forward to performing there very much. Good luck boys and girls.

Two weeks left to the festival and just when I think everything's under control one group want to change performance night! Wouldn't mind if we hadn't already printed the programmes, some negotiating to do I think.

Well that's it, festival closing date for entries long gone, but still getting late comers. Latest is a group is from Birkenhead with an original script. Looks like being an interesting mixed bag of plays by new authors this year. Many thanks to National Theatre of Wales TEAM for their support and hoping that some of you can make it up here next month.
