Friday 29 July sees superstar Jason Donovan coming to Rhyl as part of his ‘Ten Good Reasons Tour’ with Welsh star and good friend Rhydian also performing. Thursday 28 July is simply a great night out with Abba superstars Bjorn Again and now Eurovision stars Joe & Jake! And the festival opens with a great laugh – it’s the Coast2Coast Comedy night with popular Welsh comedians Zoe Lyons and Steve Williams topping the bill alongside Smug Roberts, known for appearances in the popular Peter Kay TV show Phoenix Nights, and Javier Jarquin of Card Ninja fame.
