Downton Tom backs college’s new venture

Published

on

new ventureDOWNTON ABBEY actor and Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama graduate Tom Cullen has spoken of his support for the College’s new project to take its prestigious Young Actors Studio to West Wales, offering creative opportunities and professional actor training for young people in Pembrokeshire.

“It’s fantastic that young aspiring actors in west Wales will now have the chance to discover what being an actor is all about. Equipping themselves with all the skills needed as an actor whilst working with professional practitioners in a collaborative environment and having an absolutely great time doing it,” says Royal Welsh College graduate Tom.

Students will be offered the opportunity to audition for the acting course in March or to attend open-entry Theatre Workshops. Auditions are on Saturday, March 8 at Pembrokeshire College. Students will take part in a group workshop and perform a prepared audition piece for lecturers from Royal Welsh College.

“Drama school is an amazing route into the acting profession and the Royal Welsh College is undoubtedly one of the best drama schools in the country,” continues Tom. “Young Actors Studio will simply give these young people a fantastic learning and help make sure that young people who want to get into the profession are prepared for that.”

Fellow graduate, Merlin star and former Young Actors Studio mentor Alex Vlahos agrees: “I can honestly say that I have never been more proud of the Royal Welsh College than with their work for Young Actors Studio. The skills, the advice and excellent classes taught by world class acting teachers are invaluable, not only for aspiring actors but also for nurturing other skills for future life. I believe that Young Actors Studio is a perfect gateway on the first step towards applying for drama school. During my time as mentor there, I saw the students start as young children and then by the end of their time, mature into confident adults.”

Young Actors Studio in Pembrokeshire will officially launch in April 2014 with sessions for both Acting Courses and Theatre Workshops taking place every Saturday from April 26.

All this training is delivered by professional actors, directors, choreographers and industry professionals from both theatre and television. The Young Actors Studio currently provides weekly training at the highest level in Cardiff for around 150 talented 12-20 year olds.

For details on the free workshops, and the Young Actors courses go to www.rwcmd.ac.uk/yas.

Young Actors Studio in Pembrokeshire is made possible through its partnership with Valero, the world’s largest independent refining company and Pembrokeshire’s most significant employer.

Pembrokeshire residents will not be able to vote for the Brexit Party at General Election

Published

on

THE BREXIT PARTY will not field any candidates in the two Pembrokeshire constituencies in December’s General Election it has just been confirmed, meaning locals will not be given an opportunity to vote for the party.

Nigel Farage said that he will not field candidates in any seats where conservatives won in the last general election, and instead the Brexit Party will field candidates against Labour held seats or other parties who are pro-Brexit.

He made the decision last night he said.

Speaking at a press conference flanked with supporters, Nigel Farage said: “We will expose labours betrayal. It is also fair to say that the London dominated labour party is now thousands of miles away from his traditional safe seats, some held since 1918. It’s now time for a seismic shift.

He added: “Trying to stop a second referendum is the single most important thing in our country.

He ended his speech today by saying: “In a sense we now have a leave alliance. We have done this unilaterally.

“We decided ourselves that we have to put country before party and take the fight to Labour.”

Delays for Pembrokeshire rail users due to downed trees and shortage of drivers

Published

on

TRAINS in Pembrokeshire have been hit by a series of cancellations this morning.

The 09:09AM Milford Haven to Manchester Piccadilly service was started in Carmarthen due a shortage of drivers.

E J Evans Coaches were running a bus replacement service on behalf of Transport for Wales picking up passengers at all stations to Carmarthen.

There was also trouble today on the Fishguard Harbour Branch Line. Unsafe trees were spotted on the line after Clarbeston Road and the line is now closed until November 18.

This follows delays earlier this month and in October due to the same problem.

There are also more delays across the network in Wales.

South Wales Central AM, Andrew RT Davies, has blasted the network operator, after another day of chaos for commuters on the country’s rail network.

Services in South Wales and North Wales have been hit by a series of cancellations and passengers are complaining across several areas about a lack of coaches and trains not running on
time.

Commenting on the ongoing crisis, Andrew RT Davies said: “Sadly, it’s Groundhog Day on the Welsh rail network with commuters in my region on the receiving end of yet more unsatisfactory service from Transport for Wales.

“The rail crisis in Wales is creating chaos on a near daily basis and commuters deserve a much better service than they are currently receiving from TfW.

“Labour’s economy and transport minister promised there would be numerous ‘quick wins’ on the launch of the service but things have only got worse.
“We’re seeing an appalling level of customer service – a real crisis on the rail network – which is having a detrimental impact on the lives of hardworking people.
“Transport for Wales and the Welsh Labour Government have run out of excuses and desperately need to get a grip on the situation before people give up on public transport.”
