‘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.’

‘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.’

'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.'
