I thought the very same thing bigbadhenry. Granted Gareth Jones has a wealth of experience, but the time comes to call it a day and give the younger generation a chance to gain that same experience, on the other hand who wouldn't find 48,000 a year tempting.

This is interesting, .... worth a read.

Every event that could face funding cuts when councillors meet next week
As councils struggle with budgets several major sporting and cultural occasions that take place in North Wales could be hit.
A North Wales local authority is to decide whether 25 major events should continue to get financial backing for the next five years.
Conwy Council is planning to spend more than 500,000 on cultural and sporting occasions that are scheduled to take place within the county.

It is argued that the events - aimed at drawing in visitors, benefiting locals and media exposure - have brought in an estimated 20m to the local economy.

An unspecified BBC event, a one off payment costing 63,000 for September 2018.

Better be good for that amount of money - anyone have any ideas?

Also that list isn't comprehensive - I know of at least one council funded event not listed on there.

Last night of the Proms is on Saturday, 8th September, 2018, so that outside broadcast could be returning

The Corporate Research and Information Unit assess the economic benefits within the County of supported events.

Their latest assessment was for the Little Mix and Bryan Adams concerts in July 2017, I have put a PDF copy on line and you can download it from here.......  You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Llandudno really does take the biscuit for moaning old goats - If you dropped a hundred grand through everyone's door some of them would moan their doormat got dirty!  &shake&

I read the comments and can't see any mention of Llandudno? A lot of these events take place in Conwy and Colwyn Bay, not just Llandudno. You really are  a moaning middle aged goat, b2r...  :laugh:
