I originally intended to call the show, “I’ll Millennial You in a Minute”, but my promoter considered the title, “off-puttingly baffling”. That’s my own chainsaw in the photo, by the way.
Is life that bad or have we good reason to complain about it? Are we filled with righteous anger at a world gone wrong or are we all just a bunch of whiny little brats? In short, are we spoiled? Come and watch as Byrne takes this question, turns it upside down and shakes it until the funny falls out. Go on, spoil yourself.

Sunday – 4pm – Llandudno – Venue Cymru
Prokofiev’s colourful ballet score, Cinderella, is chock full of witty, vibrant music, by turns spiky and lushly romantic. The Quarrel of the Ugly Sisters, Cinderella’s Waltz and the memorable Midnight Hour are among the Suite’s highlights. No less richly melodic is Grieg’s evergreen Piano Concerto, renowned for its explosive opening bars and its tender lyricism. By contrast, Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony hurtles along with boundless energy.
Conductor: Tomáš Hanus
Soloist: Peter Donohoe (Piano)

Gary Barlow has announced that he will embark on a solo tour of the UK kicking off in April 2018, playing 34 dates in 24 intimate venues.
The tour will see Gary play intimate venues across the UK and Ireland including some never visited before. The last time Gary played a string of venues this size, demand was so high he could have sold certain venues out six times over!
‘I had such a lot of fun back in 2013 when I played those smaller venues because you’re so much closer to the fans.The audience always seem to love the intimacy of it all too. I’m also really looking forward to playing in a couple of cities I’ve never played before as well as getting a chance to meet the fans there.’
Gary last toured as a solo artist in 2014 to acclaim from fans and critics alike, playing some of the biggest venues he had ever played as a solo artist including The O2 London, Birmingham LG Arena, Glasgow The SSE Hydro and Manchester Arena.
Gary Barlow is a British singer-songwriter and record producer who found worldwide fame as a member of British pop group Take That. Since forming in 1989 Take That have won eight BRIT awards, sold over 45 million records and over eight million concert tickets.
Gary is one of Britain’s most successful songwriters, having written 14 Number One singles as well as being a six-time recipient of an Ivor Novello Award. Aside from his achievements with Take That, he has also co-written and produced music for other renowned artists including Dame Shirley Bassey, Sir Elton John and Robbie Williams. Gary’s last solo record ‘Since I Saw You Last’ sold more than 600,000 copies and was the ninth biggest selling album that year. In more recent years, Gary has also turned his attention to the world of theatre, composing the score for the hugely successful production ‘Finding Neverland’, working alongside screenwriter Tim Firth to write the music and lyrics for musical ‘The Girls’ and also working alongside his Take That band mates to produce ‘The Band’ a record breaking musical featuring the music of Take That.

Make Your Own Silver Rings
Saturday – 10AM – Llandudno Junction- Providero
Create solid sterling silver rings from scratch using traditional silversmithing techniques.
Your friendly tutors, Britt and Andrew will be on hand at all times during the workshop to closely guide you and the other participants through each step, ensuring each person makes their own ring(s) entirely by themselves.
You will have a choice of making two stacking rings with a semi-precious gemstone or one chunky, textured ring.
The steps include sizing your finger, measuring the amount of silver needed, filing the metal, shaping the ring, using a blowtorch, adding texture, setting a stone the traditional way without glue and many other skills. Silver and tool use is included in the price, your ring(s) will go with you ready to wear at the end of the class!
The silver used in the class is 925 Solid Sterling Silver which has been used for hundreds of years. This workshop typically lasts around 3 hours in total and is aimed at complete beginners but all are welcome. This is a very hands-on class.
If you normally wear glasses for reading, we recommend you bring these. Please wear old clothes and closed-toed shoes. Long hair must also be tied back. We currently have no strict age limit on classes but please email us before booking a space for anyone under the age of 16 just to confirm this with us.
