Great days out this weekend
VISITORS to Swansea's Waterfront Museum can meet up with the creator of kids TV favourite Igam Ogam.
The cave girl stop-motion series is a hit with youngsters, who can enjoy a free screening in the gallery from 2pm, and a talk by Igam's creator Andrew Offiler, about how the show is made.
Swansea's Grand Theatre will become a Wondrous Place on Wednesday when those dreamy Billy Fury numbers will be summoned up by The Billy Fury Years. And the man who so often kept the beat for the Merseyside legend, Clem Cattini, will be at the kit, while Michael King takes up the vocal mic. The former Tornados drummer became one of the most revered session men on the circuit throughout the 60s and 70s, playing on scores of number ones and adding shuffle and edge to records and tours by Tom Jones, Cliff, The Kinks, Lou Reed, Dusty Springfield, Joe Cocker and many others, but he has always retained a soft spot for Billy. The show, which starts at 7.30pm, will dip into hits like Wondrous Place, Half Way To Paradise and Maybe Tomorrow.
The Longford Brown Piano Duo will play Stravinski Petrouchka as part of the Crwth Chamber Music concert on Saturday. They strike up at 7.30pm at the Brunswick Methodist Church, in Swansea's St Helen's Road.

Swansea's LC hosts a free, giant Bokwa master class on Saturday at 1pm. Join them in the sports hall to learn about the fitness trend which combines traditional African dance, a form of Brazilian martial art, kickboxing, and step. Places must be booked ahead.
2011 Grand National winner Ballabriggs could be poised to run at Trimsaran's Ffos Las Racecourse for Saturday's William Hill Welsh Champion Hurdle day.
While there is plenty of talent seeking the big prize-money over timber, it is some of the big names potentially going for the three-and-a-half mile race that are attracting attention.
As well as Ballabriggs, the Welsh-trained horse Cappa Bleu, which finished fourth at Aintree nine months ago, could run. The first race is off at 1.30pm.
