The 'battle' is at Parc Eirias on Sunday afternoon and the dance is in the barn at Parc Eirias on Saturday afternoon. Rest is in Penrhyn Road.

Thanks  $good$

Where is Penrhyn road? I'd like to see the George Formby guy but there doesn't appear to be any schedule or anything

'George' was very good when I saw him 2 years ago.

I think it was the year before last that a "museum" and events space was set up in one of the empty shops on Penrhyn Road, although that shop is now occupied by Bastable Upholstery so it's no longer available.  However there are other empty shops so hopefully they'll find somewhere to occupy this year.  It's good to see some of the businesses in the Bay already gearing up for the festival with Union flags and bunting already starting to appear around town.

   Who says nothing is happening in Porth Eirias?

   Its not really a laughing matter. However at 6.30 this evening, no one around as per usual, arrival of two police cars, an ambulance, all with their lights flashing, and a good few high vis jackets running around.

We had a look around the 1940's festival this morning and I have say we were very impressed.  It's certainly grown since the first year.  There are a couple of pop-up museums in the old Blockbusters and the old Second Hand shop, loads of WWII vehicles including the replica Hurricane, loads of people in costumes and loads of people in general.  I can't remember seeing Colwyn so busy and vibrant for a long time, if ever. 

There's also a marquee set up in Sea View Road occupied by local food producers and arts and crafts businesses.  Not remotely connected to the 1940's it has to be said but a great opportunity for local small businesses to demonstrate their wares.

We visited the Forties Day on Saturday, enjoyed it as always. Good to see Colwyn Bay full of people for a change. George Formby aka Paul Casper was excellent - this is him performing at another event:

Such a shame that Colwyn Bay seafront wont be available to visitors for a while yet. Anyone have any idea when this project is suppose to be complete. I did hear (exciting) news that the plan was to have it all cleared for Prom day in August, but whow! thats the end of the summer isnt it?
Much needed work being done I agree , sea defences have to be created, but sadly could put folk off visiting, this year. What with that and Llandudno's beach problems , summer for us cancelled.?
I feel sorry for local businesses.  Hope you all are going to receive some compensation when folk go whizzing by down the A55 towards Anglesey beaches. There last week and the beaches were as lovely as ever.
The time and money that was spent on the Waterfront building ,could have been spent on what is being done now!! and the building or Skip could have been built at a later date. So we could have had a decent prom and beach and road much much sooner. They could have still put the base in,
instead looks like what was completed  has now had the rug pulled from underfoot. Looks a mess with all the weeds anyway. &shake&
