S4C sells out CIA concert


More tickets have been issued for a special S4C concert showcasing some of Wales’ biggest UK talent show achievers and hosted by The One Show presenter Alex Jones at the Cardiff International Arena after the event sold out the allocated amount.

Extra tickets will be made available from Friday (22 October) and are free to the public wanting to attend the star-studded evening of entertainment, held at the CIA on Sunday, 24 October.

In the concert, Alex – a familiar face on S4C – will introduce performances by X Factor finalist Rhydian Roberts, Sophie Evans – second in the recent search for a new Dorothy in BBC’s Over the Rainbow and Shaheen Jafargholi, the Britain’s Got Talent star who is known globally after singing at Michael Jackson’s Memorial Service.

Alex says, “Cyngerdd Mawr Talent Cymru is a great opportunity to see an amazing array of talent under one roof – I’m not surprised at all that the tickets have been swooped up. It’s such an honour for me to host this evening and to introduce the artists and performers – all of whom have done remarkably well in their respected fields over the past few years. More tickets are now available. So if you haven’t already got your tickets for the celebration of Welsh talent, then get moving fast because this is one event that’s not to be missed!”

Rhydian adds, “I am delighted that so many fans from across the UK are coming to Wales to enjoy a special showcase of Welsh talent. It promises to be an exciting celebration of entertainment with some fantastic performances and collaborations! If you haven’t already got your tickets, then get moving fast!”

Others stars and artists to perform at the televised concert are Mark Evans (Your Country Needs You), Tara Bethan (I’d Do Anything), Ysgol Glanaethwy (Last Choir Standing) and Laura Sutton (Stars in Their Eyes).
