The events arena welcomed thousands of people over the weekend from all over the country to enjoy live music in the sun on the North Wales sea front.
The coast was buzzing with excitement as Legendary Manchester band James kicked off the three-day music festival on Friday with support from The K’s and crowd favourite The Lightning Seeds, followed on Saturday by powerhouse Beverley Knight and headlining act Jack Savoretti. Tom Grennan finished the star-studded weekend on the Sunday with back up performer XFactor star Ella Genderson, as well as performing together. No seats were spared at Rhyl Pavilion as Jason Manford delighted the audience with his theatre tour, followed by drinks and DJ at 1891 Terrace.
Jamie Groves, Managing Director of Denbighshire Leisure Ltd said, “We’re overjoyed by the success of this weekend’s programme at the Events Arena and Rhyl Pavilion Theatre, which resulted in thousands of visitors spending the weekend in Rhyl . It is fantastic to see so many people heading to Rhyl to see these talented and high profile performers take to the stage and we’re so thrilled to be able to host them here at the Events Arena. The weekend was another example of Rhyl and the Denbighshire Coast making the comeback as the destination of choice for performers and visitors. We also enjoyed hosting concert goers at our flagship 1891 restaurant and bar, we even welcomed people from afar as far as Holland to our Terrace at 1891 for pre-concert drinks. This really was the perfect way to kick-start Summer in Denbighshire!”
Legendary Manchester band James were supported by The K’s and The Lightning Seeds. With their spellbinding stage presence and popular hits including ‘Sit Down’, James set the standards high for the remaining acts to follow on Saturday and Sunday evening.
International superstar Beverley Knight then graced the stage on Saturday evening performing original hits and crowd favourite covers with the likes of Chaka Khan’s ‘I’m every woman’ that had everyone dancing and warmed up for the headlining act of the evening, Jack Savoretti.
Hilarious comedian Jason Manford returned to Rhyl Pavilion due to popular demand just 8 months after his last successful performance at the auditorium and the crowd were treated to a night of laughter, followed by drinks and a DJ at 1891.
Chart-topping Tom Grennan brought the weekend to a close with X Factor star Ella Henderson, both wowing the crowd with their top hit duet ‘Let’s go home together’.
