The West End of Wales to bring music to the nation with GWLAD! with the support of Bluestone National Park Resort

Since the beginning of lockdown in 2020, The West End of Wales has been the driving force behind some of the most incredible virtual performances featuring top Welsh musicians and have brought joy to over a million people.

This St. David’s Day will see celebrations different to those before, however this isn’t stopping the dedicated team of local talent who have produced an inspirational and completely unique showcase for all to enjoy.

Proudly supported by Bluestone National Park Resort, the evening will include performances from West End Stars, including John Owen-Jones (Les Misérables and Phantom of the Opera) and Lucie Jones (Waitress and Legally Blonde), both accompanied by The West End of Wales Orchestra. Other musical names including the world-class Cory Brass Band and, as well as a host of star announcers, including Welsh comedian, Rhod Gilbert.

“’Gwlad!’ - is a showcase that will see some of Wales’ finest performers and entertainers come together for a virtual concert to celebrate the land of song on our Welsh national day, St David’s Day. Times are tough for everyone at the moment, but we hope that this concert can go a little way to boosting the morale of our nation and bring us together in song.” Explained West End of Wales cofounder, Iestyn Griffiths.

“One of our key aims for the evening is to raise enough money in order to provide work and opportunities for musicians, artists and performers who have not been able to work since March 2020. We’re really grateful for the support of Bluestone in helping us to do this, and we can’t wait to share the evening with you all online!”

Pamela McNamara, Bluestone’s Commercial Director said, “We’re delighted to be supporting the production of this brilliant event. We have always been proud to champion the talent that we have here in Pembrokeshire.

“The dedication and work of all of those involved in the creation of what is going to be a fantastic concert, is something we all admire. We wish all the artists the best of luck for the evening, and we can’t wait to see you all back on stage soon, but until then it’ll be even more special that we can all enjoy it together and share these celebrations across the world.
