Panto time!

One of the joys of living where we are is the easy access, every Christmas, to the pantomime season at Llandudno.

This year was no exception and it was a joy to take my two sons to see Aladdin at Venue Cymru last week which we all enjoyed (especially me!)

The refurbished North Wales Theatre is superb and will hopefully help cement the reputation of Llandudno as the major leisure and retail centre in the region and, more importantly, bring in some conferences in the future.

I would like to see greater links formed between the theatre and local restaurants - one of the great things about the Millenium Centre in cardiff is that they have a complex of 28 restaurants only 100 yards away and this is normally packed with theatre goers between 6.00 and 7.00 in the evening.

Surely, we can try and get our local hotels and restaurants to offer something similar in Llandudno?

Talking of food, the panto was followed by an all too rare visit to Barnacles - one of the excellent fish and chips restaurants in Llandudno where the Cod and Chips was out of this world. Certainly amongst the best I have tasted!
