SPRING has sprung at the Ucheldre Centre in Holyhead with a fantastic range of entertainment on offer this month.

Ucheldre Rep presents A Woman in a Dressing Gown, a ‘kitchen sink’ drama set in the 1960s, which runs from Thursday, May 17 until Saturday, May 19 at 7.30pm.

It is written by Ted Willis, directed by Tom Wallwork and has Caroline Tattersall in the title role.

The much-acclaimed production was originally written for television.

It portrays life in a working-class family living on a council estate and deals with a very real and raw truth which eventually surfaces in a long-established marriage.

The play is by arrangement with Samuel French.

For the jazz fans, Swansea born composer Huw Warren presents his Do Not Go Gentle jazz suite, based on the poetry of Dylan Thomas tomorrow night (Friday) at 7.30pm.

Commissioned by Brecon Jazz Festival for the Dylan Thomas centenary year, the work is the result of Warren’s lifelong interest in Thomas’s poetry and reflects the inherent musicality of the words. The music features Warren on piano, Iain Ballamy on saxophone, Steve Watts on bass and Martin France on drums.

In the night's opening set, Amser Jazz: Time On Tour, Warren will be supported by the jazz musicians of the Royal Welsh College.
