St Helena – Secret of the South Atlantic
by David Jeremiah OBE QC
A fascinating talk in which David expounds his theory that St Helena is the island in Shakespeare’s “The Tempest”.
Practical ideas on creative writing for children and how to get published.
Dan lives in Pembrokeshire and writes for children and grown-ups.
His radio plays have been broadcast on BBC Radio 4, Radio 3 and Radio Wales, he helped S4C develop its successful children’s series Y Meees and was a scriptwriter on CBBCs Tracy Beaker series.
As a result of this experience he plucked up the courage to try writing a book himself, something his school teachers told him never to do. His first children’s book, The RugbyZombies was nominated for a Tir na n-Og award from the Welsh Books council and he has since completed the popular RugbyZombietrilogy. Dan has visited many schools to talk about his work and leads themed walks around Cardiff for Cardiff Children’s Literature Festival.
For creatives and inventives, who pride themselves on their self-styling, his workshops turn ugly ducklings into flocks of geeks.
This one is chance to develop your own ideas, experiencing the relationship between sharing and collaborating and owning and enabling creative experience.
Dan Anthony’s workshops on creativity are enabling experiences, they’re also great fun.
As well as writing and originating hit TV series, children’s novels, plays and situation comedies for grown ups, Dan has twenty years’ experience working as decision maker and manager in the field of intellectual property. Previous workshop clients include National Museum of Wales, Cardiff University, Trinity College St David’s, Cardiff Art School, CIRIC, The Welsh Books Council and schools and colleges throughout the UK. He blogs and writes about IP for the UK IPO, WIPO and OHIM and runs workshops on IP and creativity for students.

Pint-sized Plays will have been part of the Tenby Festival for a whole ten years and will be appearing once again in selected Tenby pubs. They are all short, 5-10 minute plays – winners from an international playwriting competition, several of which this year have also been chosen to be performed at the Edinburgh Fringe!
Some are thought provoking, some are funny, some are downright hilarious – and you can see them all for free in six Tenby pubs over two nights, with three plays per pub.
All ten winning plays will then be performed at the Script Slam at Theatr Gwaun in Fishguard on September 30 where the audience gets to vote for the overall winner. So get yourself a drink and make sure you catch them at the following pubs:

Bob & Holly play a mix of bluegrass gospel, country, folk, and rock. Holly is a fine and highly accomplished fiddle player with her roots in British folk & heavy metal! Joining Bob, she’s embraced, and is enjoying playing country style to great effect. Bob’s been playing the autoharp for 18 years, prior to this he was always a lead singer, his claim to fame was with the very successful doo-wop / r’n’b band DARTS. Bob has taught the autoharp at various autoharp gatherings both here in the UK and in The States. His love of bluegrass and country is a great vehicle for his ‘high & lonesome’ vocal style, and is considered one of the best autoharp players in the UK.
