The world of entertainment fascinates me, and always has.
Being around talented and creative people can often be an uplifting experience. This is why I am always willing to support and encourage new talent in our area and very often I see this creativity breaking through in the final stages of the Welsh Factor talent shows.
The entertainers of tomorrow all have to start somewhere and without the up and coming talent there will be no entertainment venues left open in the future. We owe it to our communities to support these venues and live entertainment.
As for me, last Saturday I had the pleasure of putting on another successful Phil Evans and Friends Comedy Special at the Pontardawe Arts Centre. This is a venue that has been promoting live entertainment in many forms for as long as I can remember. It’s run by a small group of hard working staff who have a passion for live entertainment. It really is a jewel in the heart of the community.
Keep an eye on this venue and make it a goal to go out and see more live shows; it really will lift your spirits.
