Fringe gets under way

An evening of stand-up comedy headlined by Alun Cochrane launched the 15th Llangollen Fringe Festival last night (Thursday). 
 
With ten full nights of entertainment to come and 17 workshops during the day, there is a lot to look forward to.

A ten piece band from Ghana and London will really thrill you on Saturday night.  Yaaba Funk is a well-known band with an ever growing reputation who can’t fail to have the whole audience asking for more.
(£10, 20th July).

If you fancy something more thought provoking, then on Sunday night there's an audience with Alexei Sayle, well known comedian, broadcaster and writer.  He will entertain with readings from his autobiography ‘Stalin Ate my Homework’ and other as yet unpublished work. (£15, 21st July)

The Jazz Train on Sunday 21st July has three separate bands providing live music.  The first band will play on the platform before departure.
 
The second band will entertain you on your journey to and from Carrog whilst you sip a complimentary glass of wine as the train is pulled through the Dee Valley being hauled by a steam locomotive.
 
A third band will entertain you on Carrog station. A great night for jazz music and the nostalgia evoked by the era of the steam train. £18, 5pm.
