A NEW feature showcasing local talent is set to make its debut at this year’s Llandudno Extravaganza.
A Community Stage is being launched at the Victorian three-day event open to acts of all types, aimed at encouraging community input and showing off the talent hidden in Llandudno.
Participants will have an opportunity to promote their performances by joining in with the Extravaganza’s Grand Daily parade which sets off at 1pm each day on Madoc street.
Organiser Heather Griffin said: “We want to prove to our visitors that Llandudno really does have talent.
“We want all types of different acts, as unusual they are, they will seriously be considered.”
The stage is being provided by Mad for Sound and Lightning, and hosted by local radio station Tudno FM.
People and organisations are also invited to sponsor the stage.
The Llandudno 2013 Victorian Extravaganza takes place on the May Bank Holiday weekend between Saturday, May 4 and Monday, May 6 and is combined with the Llandudno Transport Festival.
The Extravaganza celebrates the rich Victorian heritage in the area, exhibiting an array of steam engines, street entertainers, Victorian costumes and fair rides.
Organisers from the Extravaganza Committee are promising that this year’s event will be “bigger and more vibrant than ever”.
