Charlotte’s Tiger Bay Awayday…
Over the years, masses of DSB fans have travelled to Cardiff and enjoyed stunning concerts.
Those legendary performances at the Cardiff Arena, St David’s Hall, Cardiff Castle, the Wales Millennium Centre and even at the opening of the Millennium Stadium have thrilled tens of thousands. There is something special about her home crowd, the audiences are always great.
Charlotte sent this lovely message about her recent visit to Shirley’s home city, with some quick photos of Tiger Bay.
“Hello Peggy how are you?
Did you enjoy the night at the Royal Albert Hall?
Dame Shirley was fantastic wasn’t she!
My boyfriend and I drove to Cardiff Bay yesterday, I had a lovely time!
I saw nothing about Shirley although the car navigator mentioned her 🙂
I’ve attached some pics nothing special, just took a few snaps on my mobile phone.
We ate at a very nice restaurant they had a huge picture of Bryn Terfel I think it was signed!
It was nice to be able to jump in the car and visit Shirley’s town.
I forgot to mention Shirley was in the Evening Post on the 17th October 2 full pages.I hope you got it.
I don’t have a scanner I wouldn’t be able to send it. I’ll have to get one I have loads of Shirley sheet music.
Hope you are well.
Thanks – yes the Albert was a riot.
It’s a shame that there is no visible sign of DSB in Cardiff, but there was talk of a Walk of Fame.
How about a modern statue outside the Millennium Centre, garlanded with crystals?
Come home to Cardiff right now!
