The Dell main stage

Shakespeare bingo! on the main stage

Join us on The Dell main stage for live music, performances of Shakespeare and practical theatre demonstrations.

The Tripp Ensemble
11.30am-12.15pm and 4.15 - 5pm
The Tripp Ensemble was founded by Tobie Tripp, a Cardiff-based musician, who uses a cross-pollination of musical styles to create unique, unforgettable pieces. The Tripp Ensemble's aim is to combine genres of music across the board that wouldn't be expected in a single performance.

''There's something refreshingly unique about this band that really separates them from what the rest of Cardiff is offering.'' - Radio Cardiff (B-side)

Nicky Pound & Friends
12.30-1.15pm and 3 – 3.45pm
Having grown up with the rich fiddle tradition of Scotland, Nicky Pound now combines this with a love of the traditional music and dance of England. Having met through Morris dancing, this group of young musicians now delight in sharing their music with audiences in the Midlands and beyond.

Shakespeare Bingo!
12.15 – 12.30pm, 2.45-3pm, 3.45-4pm
Get your dabbers at the ready for our special Shakespeare themed bingo calls! Play a quick game between performances with prizes for a full house.

Listen to a performance fusing the words and sounds of Shakespeare with traditional full size djembe drums.  Anyone who wants to be part of the performance can take part in the Shakespeare Rhythm workshop between 11.30am-1pm in The Other Place at The Courtyard Theatre. 

London Youth Gospel Choir (LYGC)
Having worked with participants in just a 2 hour workshop the day before, London Youth Gospel Choir (LYGC) presents songs from Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream through the uplifting energy of gospel music.  LYGC was set up to enable people who enjoy singing to meet others whilst developing their music and vocal skills. The choir sings uplifting material including Gospel, pop/funk/soul and African traditional.
