Born, bred and based in Cardiff, I am a Welsh-speaking actor musician and comedian.
I play trumpet, guitar, bass, accordion and sing in local bands and have a solo musical comedy act called Francesca's Word Salad. www.francescadimech.com
The other bands I play in are listed in the projects section.
Enough is Enough (Be Aware Productions: 2017 to present)
Dr Frankenstein's Travelling Freak Show (Tin Shed Theatre 2014-2016)
Rude: A Ska Musical (Give It A Name Theatre: 2010 and 2012)
Work in education:
I've led bilingual (Welsh/English) vocal and movement workshops in schools with Man Mela Theatre company, puppetry making workshops with SWICA and Small World Theatre in Cardigan, as well as brass playing workshops for all ages with Wonderbrass. With Adamsdown Arts Association, I taught local children and care home residents how to create instruments from recycled materials, write and play songs.

I really enjoyed my time in the rehearsal room for National Theatre Wales and Hijinx production Mission Control which is staged at Principality Stadium at the end of this month. I'm super excited about this production, it's going to be out of this world (I am so clever). pic.twitter.com/MieVBaKbm7
