Balkan Dances in North Wales

At the Ensemble Cymru in Bangor February will become a “Balkan month”: the organization has arranged several evenings with a wonderfully evocative and superbly crafted series of contrasting dances by the Croatian-Serbian composer Tajcevic; excellent for lovers of  chamber music for clarinet, cello and piano.

'Mostly Mozart'


Chester Cathedral has a rich and fascinating heritage. It is a living community of prayer and worship, a centre of excellence in Church Music, and plays a key role for the Christian community across Chester, the Wirral and Cheshire.
The 23rd January the Cathedral has opened its season with the evening “Mostly Mozart”, a celebration of one of the world’s most famous composer’s music. The evening has been directed by Ian Roberts, with singing by the Cathedral Nave Choir with Simon Walker and Philip Rushforth on the famous Cathedral Organ.

Ghost Walk & Overnight Paranormal Investigation

Bodelwyddan Castle is the only property in North Wales to have its own in-house paranormal investigation team. Parts of the house date from the fifteenth century when the building was a simple manor house, although there was probably a dwelling of some sort on the site long before this. There have been many ghostly happenings reported over the past few years. On a Bodelwyddan Castle Ghost Walk, you can learn more about the history of the house, its inhabitants as well as hearing ghost stories and personal accounts of paranormal experiences at the Castle. Guests have also got the opportunity to take part in a short vigil at the end of the tour.  Ghost Walks are a great way to gain an introduction to the work of the paranormal team before booking a place on a full over night investigation.
