JOIN Basil, Sybil and Manuel at Aberystwyth Arts Centre at the end of the month for ‘Faulty Towers: The Dining Experience’. This globetrotting show is truly


mayhem. Expect the unexpected! Internationally acclaimed, the


quite legendary, selling out in places like Edinburgh Fringe, Raffles Singapore and Sydney Opera House, so make sure you book early to avoid missing out. When the audience become diners


in the ‘Faulty Towers’ restaurant, pretty much anything can happen – because two-thirds of the show is improvised. The fun starts as guests wait to


be seated. It then hurtles along in a two-hour tour de force of gags and shambolic service as Basil, Sybil and Manuel serve a 70s-style three-course meal together with a good dollop of


show was born in Brisbane in 1997 as a loving tribute to the BBC’s best- loved sitcom. Hundreds of thousands of people


around the world have seen it since. Today, nine teams of cast working from England and Australia tour around 20 countries a year. The show is also into its fourth year in London’s West End, where it holds TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence for its six- shows-a-week residency at Amba Hotel Charing Cross.

TWO fantastic Welsh-medium


bands, who perform exciting rock songs, will be performing in


Lampeter at the end of the month. Organised by Celf Llambed Arts, Mellt and Ysgol Sul will take


Mellt: Headling the show at the Victoria Hall


55 Entertainment Experience Faulty Towers live Horizons alumni perform in Lampeter Supporting Mellt: Ysgol Sul, from Llandeilo


to the Victoria Hall stage on Friday, September 30 from 7pm. Headliners Mellt (Lightning) have


a set filled with urgent, incendiary bolts of high voltage tuneage. An up-and-coming band from Aberystwyth, the band were chosen to be part of 2015’s BBC Horizons project, along with other fantastic artists such as Cut Ribbons and Dan Bettridge.


Describing Mellt, the Horizons


project said: “Sometimes there isn’t a lot to say. Especially when a really exciting band appear, seemingly overnight, and apparently from nowhere. “We can, at least, fill in the blank


marked ‘nowhere’. Mellt are from Aberystwyth. They’re Year 13 (Upper Sixth Form in old currency) students at Penglais School. But unlike the majority of school bands, you won’t find any Arctic Monkeys or Guns ’n’ Roses in their setlist, Mellt (Lightning!) have a set filled with urgent, incendiary bolts of high voltage tuneage, like the very excellent Cysgod Cyfarwydd.” Ysgol Sul, an Indie band from


Llandeilo, were one of the bands chosen for this year’s Horizons project. Of the band, the project said:

“The song that earned them a place in numerous hearts at Welsh festivals in 2015, ‘Aberystwyth yn y Glaw’, harks back to prime Libertines, ‘Promenad’ is a hybrid of The Strokes and Vampire Weekend, or Mystery Jets if Mystery Jets came from mid-Wales. “Their most recent EP, ‘Huno’ is


something else entirely… shimmering with heady dream pop that is given gravitas by Iolo’s rich vocals. It’s easy to hear why the band have


won accolades at The Eisteddfod, from the influential Selar magazine, and - now - as one of the Horizon 2016 artists.”
