Wales YFC plan a busy weekend in Swansea

Preparations are underway for a new exciting event which will be held at the Grand Theatre in Swansea on the 12th and 13th of March. The new Entertainment Feast is set to become one of the highlights of the Wales YFC calendar.

The main event of the weekend will be the Wales YFC Welsh and English Entertainment competition which will be a showcase of YFC talents where members from across Wales will entertain audiences with colourful and professional half hour performances.

Over the two days the Grand Theatre will be buzzing with other events. Special workshops in Welsh and English will be held in the arts wing of the theatre to develop the members skills in costume making, make up and scripting. Past entrants of the Wales YFC NatWest Enterprise Scheme will be present to promote their businesses and to offer advice to other YFC members who are thinking of going it alone.

To mark Wales YFC 75th anniversary a celebratory tree planning session will be held in conjunction with Coed Cadw at Clain Woods at 10am on the Saturday morning. Wales YFC are also asking those attending the weekend to bring along old photos of YFC events to be scanned on to computers as part of the Wales YFC archiving project.

A sky dive is also planed, where Enfys Evans the Wales YFC Chairman along with members from all over Wales will jump from a plane at Swansea Airport to raise awareness of the Wales YFC charity of the year Mind Cymru in association with Rural Support Wales.

Enfys Evans, Wales YFC chairman stated;
“Such feast of entertainment is a salivating prospect as the talent within our YFC communities are abundant, from scripters to producers and of course the most important part of the jigsaw, the members performing on stage. This new event is an exciting development in many ways, a bilingual showcase, a fantastic stage for our members and a great weekend away for our supporters. Let’s raise the roof on the Grand and I’d certainly advise booking your tickets now to avoid disappointment as this will be a weekend to remember”.

Tickets are now on sale from the theatres box office (01792 475 715) and those wishing to attend will be able to purchase a session ticket, a day ticket or a gala ticket for the whole weekend. Once the first 500 tickets for the event have been sold the remaining tickets will go on sale on Monday the 28th of February 2011.
