Our promenade production on the Boardwalk @Nadolig Llawen Betws-y-Coed, Dec 2014
'Who is Santa? As children we look to this mysterious, almost out of reach aloof character who without question, rewards us for our good behavior. Yet as we grow in years we realise that it is us that are to do the giving. But then it is us who hide behind our 'presents' for fear of revealing our true identity. Do you have what it takes to remove your mask...

Once again we'll be venturing into the woods along the boardwalk @
We had a lot of fun putting on a promenade theatre show at the Betws Christmas event last year, and a bit of a departure from our Forest Labyrinth shows, so it's great that we can once again get the chance to put on another mini-show next to the river on the boardwalk and in the forest in Betws-y-Coed.
We are planning to do shows at 4.15 & 7.15pm on the Saturday & Sunday afternoon and evening.
The last show will be in the dark and so we will will be doing a few extra things for that performance. There will be no formal ticketing but we will welcome donations towards the costs, and our next big show in the labyrinth...
The shows entail walking along the riverside boardwalk & paths, and whilst they are good and allow access for all, it's best if you're footwear is sturdy as it does follow a short trail through the woodland.
Obviously we can't control the weather so come prepared, as i'm sure you all will if you're planing to be in Betws for the day.
We envisage the show will last bewtween 30 - 40 minutes, so the 4.15pm show will finish just in time for the parade through Betws which will begin at 5.15pm and leaves from the same location - The Pont y Pair car park, just over the bridge of the same name over the falls.
