'Traditionally held in November ... the North Wales Choral Festival is considered one of the largest choral competitions in Wales and is an event for any choral calendar! ... Community performances are free to the public and offer choirs a social aspect to the festival as well as the choral competitions.'


‘Singers are drawn from a wide geographical area, covering mainly North Wales, and many travel over 100 miles to attend rehearsals held twice each month at Betws y Coed. It was in February 1993 that the choir gave their first concert performance. Since then there have been several prestigious engagements and tours. The choir continues to expand its repertoire of traditional Welsh and English male choral music as well as introducing other pieces, often arranged by its founder conductor.’

‘Formed as the Conwy Ensemble in 2010 by the then Mayor ... In 2017, the name was changed to Conwy Town Orchestra ... a vibrant, engaging and dynamic orchestra based in the UNESCO World Heritage town of Conwy in North Wales. Throughout the year we play and perform classical music in an enjoyable and sociable setting. Whilst we aim to achieve a high standard of performance, we truly believe that, as an amateur orchestra, enjoyment is the most important part of any music making experience. This means that our members truly look forward to Thursday evenings from both a musical and social perspective.’


'Formed in October 2004 with the intention of singing oratorio for Christmas and Easter. There hasn't been a mixed choir in the valley since the days of Meredith Jones in the 60s in Talybont and The Llandudno Choral Society under the baton of Ffowc Williams, although there have been smaller choirs performing cantatas in the area ... Rehearsals alternate between Llandudno, Abergele and Llanwrst ... You can join us without the need to audition.'

‘The Choir takes its name from King Maelgwn Gwynedd who lived in Deganwy Castle, located between Llandudno and Conwy ... Why not join us? We are always on the lookout for new members. It’s quite a straightforward and painless process! ... It really is not necessary to make formal arrangements to be with us; simply turn up and you will get a very warm welcome ... In addition to the singing, the choir enjoys an active social life, which includes wives and partners.’


‘In 1910 when Llandudno was regarded as the most fashionable seaside resort in Wales its urban district council asked the St.Tudno Brass Band to provide entertainment to a standard expected by its discerning visitors. Over a century later our band continues this tradition by performing during the summer months in the promenade bandstand, playing Christmas carols in the shopping arcades during the festive season, organising concerts in aid of local charities, competing in competitions, eisteddfod and festivals and providing free tuition for our next generation of performers. In essence we are a traditional brass band proud of our roots and customs.’


Founded 1978: ‘Run by volunteers, LYMT relies on membership fees, grants, donations and ticket sales to run the group ... LYMT is for children and young people aged from 6 - 19 years’.


'Consists of a theatre, conference centre and Arena. There has been a theatre on the Venue Cymru site since 1894 ... Where the Arcadia once stood, to the East of the complex, a new conference atrium and suite of meeting and conference rooms was built including a new 1550 square metre Arena providing space for 1800 seats theatre style or more than 2500 people standing ... The North Wales Theatre, Conference Centre and Arena demanded a new, shorter and bilingual (Welsh/English) name. In December 2005 a competition was launched in a local newspaper to rename the complex. Almost 300 entries were received and the winning entry Venue Cymru (Cymru is Welsh for Wales) was chosen a few months later.'
