The Great Orme!

Christmas Day for many was a day spent after driving vast distances across the country. Elle and the girls drove to Brighton and back to be with families, Liam and Kieran, Helen, Sherrie, Will, Harriet & Jamie and Rachel & Bethan all drove . I was lucky, my family and friends came here to see the Panto and to spend Christmas Day at the Hotel, joined by Andrew Ryan. They then returned Boxing Day to see Peter Pan at Birmingham Rep and Snow White (with Andrew) at the Hippodrome in the evening.

I had a great Christmas, loving the fact that my Hotel was full of dogs. Paradise! We ventured up the Orme and along the Prom. A great relaxing day.

Boxing Day Dippers!

I had promised Angela OGrady Mayor of Llandudno that I would be on hand at 11am to launch the Boxing Day DFip in the Sea! It is an annual event- for over 26 years, organised for Charity by the British Lions. I arrived at The St George’s to judge the fancy Dress Competition of bathers Pre dip. Winners were a group of Santa’s Reindeers, Second was Pamela Andreson & The Hoff, and third were two Wonder Women!

The Festive Dippers!

All praise to those brave folk who plunged into minus goodness knows what to raise funds for charities!

I had to make a hasty retreat to the Theatre for our 1am show. Great houses for both shows- lots of Adults and consequently lots of laughs. We have fun the audience and us up on stage. It is a party- and both houses had a great Boxing Day!

We also had our Secret Santa today- held on stage after the matinee, before the Babes Party and I still found time for a doze and a tidy up and a pre pack before the 5pm show!

Time has flown, and now as we near the end of a hugely happy season, the time is positively racing! On Sunday during the last show Christina will be doing my packing as she has done each time I’ve appeared here! By 7.30pm it will all be ready for the van!

Tomorrow is our Relaxed Performance at 1pm followed by a 5pm show. I love relaxed performances, and the fact that we can reach out to audiences that otherwise not wish to sit through a show. Its a really great feel good show we have ahead of us!
