Carmarthenshire concert promoter Cerith Owens has announced details of two major autumn concerts – one in Llanelli and one in Carmarthen.
‘A Night with the Stars’ has now become a very popular annual fixture in the concert calendar and is an opportunity to see existing stars performing alongside some potential stars of the future.

The evening will also feature violinist Charlie Lovell Jones and members of the Loud Applause Rising Stars team.
