Mary Poppins Review The Wales Millennium Centre

Dazzling, spellbinding and simply quite magical, Mary Poppins has landed in Cardiff.
This Christmas treat yourself to a trip down Cherry Tree Lane and experience that magic of Mary Poppins.
Everyone's favourite Nanny is back at The Wales Millennium Centre for the festive season enchanting audiences of all ages. The props and special effects are superb, you'll be amazed as the sets manoeuvre and change before your very eyes. The cast is exceptional especially the children playing Jane and Michael Banks, both deliver fantastic performances. Zizi Strallen steps into the iconic role of Mary and puts on a performance that could only be described as practically perfect in every way.
This production is slightly darker than the film which makes an old story seem quite new. The big numbers are sang brilliantly and personal highlight had to be 'Feed The Birds', pure perfection.
Mary Poppins is a story that will never tire, it will simply enchant and remind you of the magic you f…

Into The Ark Interview

Dane Lloyd and Taylor Jones also known as Into The Ark have signed a publishing deal with Warner Chappell and Paolo Nutini's management team will be looking after the guys.Into The Ark play Clwb Ifor Bach on December 13th and marks the groups return to the capital. 
Hi guys, how're you?

We're good thanks!

First of all well done on all the success so far! Are you excited to be back in Cardiff & playing Clwb Ifor Bach on Tuesday 13th?

Yes! We haven’t played home in a while, these gigs always get a bit messy (in a good way…)

It's quite a big stage compared to busking on the streets, do you treat it the same? Do you get nervous?
Yeah I think it's good if you're still getting a bit nervous but we treat all shows the same, even if there's one person in the crowd. Fingers crossed there will be a few more than that though. 
Tell us a little about the new single ''My Ghost'...
My Ghost was our first single that we released on our own label - BLACKWOOD RECOR…

Kiln.Secured Review

Tonight is your last chance to catch ‘Secured’, a comedic look into life at a Security Surveillance Office. Performing tonight at AJ’s Coffee House, City Road at 7pm, tickets are only £5.


“Two men staring at a set of CCTV monitors doesn't sound like the most auspicious of settings for a comedy but the opening of Secured belies what is to come. Performed by James Sarson, Aaron Price and the walkie-talkie-fied Melanie Stevens, Unsecured is a bright, funny play with some surprisingly touching elements that really do make you connect with the characters. Packing in a gag-per-minute ratio that would make many comedy scriptwriters envious, Secured contrasts two men attempting to bond across generations and makes for compelling watching. This is a show I truly hope returns to the stage in the near future to give more people a chance to catch it and is a solid turn for debut writer Tobias Weatherburn and director Becca Lidstone. I look forward to seeing what they have planned next.”

Only Men Aloud at St David's Hall

Wales favourite Man Band returned to St David's Hall on Saturday night as part of their Christmas tour. In a festive extravaganza the guys kickstarted the Christmas season giving all the Yuletide classics the Only Men Aloud makeover.
Stunning renditions of Whams 'Last Christmas' and 'Silent Night' were definite highlights from the show, also there was incredible, unique renditions of well known hits such as 'I Think We're Alone Now' and 'Macarthur Park'.
Special guests Only Kids Aloud performed songs from Matilda & Charlie And The Chocolate Factory and concluded their performance with a duet with Only Men Aloud.
The slickly choreographed show concluded with a spine tingling performance of Christmas classic O' Holy Night. It was clear to see the guys were enjoying the show as much as the audience and even stayed behind to meet their fans afterwards.
