As Festival UK *2022 is being called the Brexit Festival who will partake?

It seems the Arts Council Wales has launched the application process for the Festival UK*2022 but is this not B Johnson's BREXIT FESTIVAL? ? 

As 95% of the creative industries did not vote for Brexit who wants this Festival?

By the time this festival happens, if it goes ahead, we may well find that touring in Europe will be very difficult and very expensive. Admin will increase and extra expenses for the carnet system will make it almost impossible for small companies to make a…

Theatres in shutdown

We really wish to carry on and get back up running when this virus is under control. As…

Ironic

Ironic that being a theatre director , performer and maker it all gets too  busy, all at once, and it is hard to get to actually see other pieces of theatre, events and shows. Managed to catch On Bear Ridge at the Sherman but that is a  4 hour round trip. Wanting to see Monolith at the Principality Stadium but booked and working  on those days.

 i should post up our events as we have 3 or even 4 lantern parades ending up with the 4th Cardigan lantern parade that attracted over 10,000…

Cragen

The Cragen lands.

From inside the belly of the beast:

Making a monster.

Small World had an idea, let’s make a monster that comes from the deep, a mysterious big presence that arrives on a Welsh beach and drops off a load of ocean plastic. Somehow communicating that this stuff is new to the ocean environment and not wanted. For millennia the creatures of…

Who controls the drones in my sky

So here we are in west Wales and occasionally there is the strange sound of a lawn mower above your head. What? !    Who’s trimming the clouds today? Ahh it’s another DRONE test. A few months ago one fell out of the sky and landed in a field  “NOT IN MY BACK YARD” But of course this is not just a N I M B Y subject, drones could get everywhere. We need the space for our community to creatively discuss this controversial subject and share different views.

Is it just a distraction that…

Until now the story of Brân was alive only in an old Welsh classic tucked safely away in the Mabinogion. Missing for over a millennium, Brân’s…
