Priscilla Queen Of The Desert at The Princess Royal Theatre Port Talbot

Big, Brash and Beautiful and that's just the bus!
The most fabulous bus in the world parks up at The Princess Royal Theatre in Port Talbot for five nights of outrageous fun.
We all know the story, three Drag Queens travelling across Australia in a bus called Priscilla. As musicals go this has it all, it's over the top, it's bursting with pop hits, it has enough comedy you'll be crying with laughter and enough sentiment to make you cry some more but for the majority of the show you'll be laughing and wishing you was on that stage singing along.  The Port Talbot & District Amateur Operatic Society deserve huge applause for this production, the enthusiasm and dedication to this performance was overwhelming. Huge performances from Carlton Gronow, Heflin Carwyn Rosser and Joe Crabbe who play the iconic roles of Tick, Felicia & Bernadette. Their onstage chemistry is fantastic and they provide most of the shows comedy. Everything about this production is BIG, the s…

Bernard Poyser | A Great Cardiffian

Just like everyone that knew Bernard Poyser we was devastated to hear of his sudden passing this month. Bernard was a great supporter of any event we was involved in, along with his wife Sandra and daughter Mel he volunteered every year at The Great Roath Bake Off and attended every RoathRocks gig. It was only a month ago he attended Nathan's  exhibition in the city centre, causing chaos as he manoeuvred his mobility scooter in the small exhibition area. Bernie was the life and soul of the party, always telling jokes and always laughing. We will miss the laughs, we will miss the jokes and the singing, your tales of the swinging sixties often had us in shock but always hysterics. This month we honour our friend The Cardiff Times Cardiffian Of The Month.

Bernard married Sandra in 1967 and they had Melanie and Christian in the early 70s. They lived in Roath for 44 years. (He grew up in Llanishen).
Bernard was a motor mechanic by trade.  He started working at J Sherlock and Son, Roath…

Grey at The Hilton Cardiff

Hotel restaurants often lack personality and quite frankly good food but to say we were pleasantly surprised with Grey at The Hilton is a major understatement. It's manager Pasquale Manganiello has achieved something quite unique with Grey, it has all the loveliness of a family run Bistro with friendly staff and food that can only be described as amazing.

The menu is varied and there is something for everyone. It covers all tastes including great vegetarian options. There's a fantastic selection of seafood dishes too and the portion sizes will please those with a big appetite. When food is this good size does matter.


The daily 'Specials' included lamb Cawl, always a dodgy option because nobody makes Cawl like your mum right? Well this Cawl was the best I've ever had (don't tell my mum). I recommend anyone visiting Wales to visit Grey to try this famous Welsh dish, you won't be disappointed.


For main courses we ordered Sausages and Mash and Lamb Shank. As so…
