Heno to hit screens on Saturday night

4 February 2020

Soon, there will be even more reason to look forward to the weekend as Heno (Tonight) comes to our screens on Saturday.

From February 8 onwards the popular magazine programme will offer something different for half an hour every Saturday night.

Broadcast live on S4C at 7.30 from locations across Wales, the programme will provide an insight into the day's events and a sneak peak into how we spend our weekends.

The show wants the audience to share the highlights of their day from every corner Wales, whether it's a football match score, a picture of a magnificent wedding or a clip of a choir singing.

However you spend your Saturday evening, why not invite the Heno cameras crew?

Elin Fflur, one of Heno's presenters, said:

"Being live on Saturday means we can cover events that are dramatically different to the ones we usually see on weekdays. It will be a completely different show. I'm really looking forward to being able to join in the fun around the country and to see what people do to relax and recharge."

John and Alun's concert at Galeri Caernarfon will be the focus of the first programme, moving on to the Lampeters' Beer and Cider Festival the following week.

Can't go to Huw Chiswell's gig at Clwb y Bont, Pontypridd, to celebrate St David's Day? Not a problem as Heno will be there to catch the iconic singer as he takes to the stage. A fan of Theater? One week, the crew will broadcast from Theatr Clwyd to bring Al Lewis's performance of his album Te yn y Grug to your home.

The cameras will also follow the fun and excitement in Ruthun Rugby Club on the day Ireland play Wales in the six-nations.

"There really will be something for everyone. A member of a club? This is your chance to star in 'Clwb Ni' (Our Club), a weekly item on local groups. Penparc Young Farmers Club, Ceredigion, will be one of the first to feature.

You, the public can share stories and good news from every corner of Wales, whether it's a football match score, a picture of a magnificent wedding or a clip of a choir singing" says Elin.

The show will take the Ffansi Ffortiwn wheel with them wherever they go, giving viewers the chance to win up to a thousand pounds each week.

However, the presenters will step back to give a local group the opportunity to get involved in the excitement of the game by turning the wheel and possibly get rewarded for their efforts.

What better way to spend a Saturday night than with live entertainment and a glimpse into other peoples weekends?

Offering regular entertainment through Heno on Saturday evenings will pave the way for several changes to S4C's schedule.

Having discussed and listened to viewers' views, the channel will launch a brand-new schedule on 24 February, one that is designed to give consistency to the news and soap operas and be able to offer exciting new series.
