The Addams Family | Wyburn and Wayne Cardiff Times



Frightfully Fabulous Family Time!
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Cooler than the Kardashians, more twisted than the Trumps, The Addams Family have descended upon Cardiff Bay for twelve nights of music and mischief on their UK tour of the Hit musical.
Even before the show started I was in awe of the ghoulishly gothic and gorgeous set and then the lights dimmed, the fingers start snapping and the magic begins as the kookiest family of them all take to the stage.
The Addams Family have graced our TV and cinema screens for over 50 years and this production has a perfectly cast ensemble to play the iconic death obsessed family that everyone loves.
Les Dennis is fantastic as Uncle Fester, he has some great numbers in the show and his lovable character brings much giggles. Samantha Womack and Cameron Blakely are superb as Morticia & Gomez, they pay great tribute to every actor before them that played these roles possessing all the chemistry and charisma that made these parents the most devilish yet delicious couple of all time. Both actors deliver huge numbers and dance a tango worthy of a Strictly Trophy! Carrie Hope Fletcher makes a perfect Wednesday and judging by the huge crowd at stage door dressed like Wednesday I think it's fair to say she's a huge hit in this role. Carrie was flawless and probably better than any Wednesday I've seen on tv or screen.
The Addams Family (The Musical) has it all, a great score, giggles, gouls and gorgeous sets. The choreography is slick and the songs are big and catchy, you'll be foot tapping and snapping your fingers as they dance and sing through two hours of mischievous musical theatre.
Recommended for anyone from 3yrs to 300yrs The Addams Family appeals to everyone, it's a great night out and quite possibly the best musical touring the UK right now.
The show runs from 1st August until 12th of August at The Wales Millennium Theatre.

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…
