RE: 2nd Nov
News from April 2019
We’ve spent some time as DJs in Cardiff. This month we worked in:

We have done a family party night at New Minerton Holiday Park, Tenby. The DJ Diamond Dust team worked on a Wedding at Railmen’s Club, Swansea.
We are making sure that everyone is safe by doing our annual PAT testing.
Swansea and Llanelli Discos
Corey and I were DJs in Llanelli at the Furnace RFC for an engagement party. Tom was with me to do an engagement disco in Swansea Samlet Club.
There was an 18th birthday party at Resolven RFC and one at Pontardawe Golf Club too! We had a 6-year-old birthday party at Llanelli Lawn Tennis Club.
Valentine’s Discos and Parties Galore
We’re travelling a lot around Cardiff way this month.
We’ve had a teenage Valentine disco at Harlequins RFC, Cardiff, and Children’s Valentines Disco at Longford Memorial Hall, Neath Abbey.
We have done a few engagement parties at Aberdare Golf Club and Cross Keys RFC, Newport. There have been a few 18th birthday parties at Mumbles Yacht Club, Swansea and Bonymaen RFC.
DJ Diamond Dust has appeared at Children’s birthday party at Tircoed Village Hall, Swansea. We have been to Byrd Crescent Community Centre, Cardiff, with Mascot the Robot Dog.
Review of 2018
It has been a mixed bag of gigs from Swansea. Take a look at the Blogs.
Tom is still making appearances, bringing his brilliant microphone skills and unique mix of music to our audiences.
We have had more crew, who are Llian, Alex and Ollie. Tom took time off went on the Cruise liners, and Ethan has become the main DJ.
“My best gig of 2018 was in Mountain Ash Rugby Club. The atmosphere was amazing! We had great feedback from the people and everyone was having a great time. Overall, it was a very good gig!” Ollie.
I would like to thank Kelly for all his hard work. Good luck in the future!
One of the biggest discos we did this year was the Brangwyn Hall, Swansea. We had to use the full PA rig to cover it, what we would normally use for an outdoor event.
The most usual wedding disco, this year was by a lighthouse in Usk. The furthest out gig was Hereford Racecourse. The most memorable disco was the foreign exchange students at the Cardiff Metropolitan University.
The KATT has the annual appearance of the Swansea Science Festival at the National Waterfront Museum. The 8-Foot-Robot-Cat worked perfectly however, Mascot the Robot Dog was plagued with technical problems. This has been fully resolved, thank goodness.
Corey is now taking a central role in our Robot Shows. Well done Corey.
It was busier this January and I am pleasantly surprised. We have done a teenage disco in Pencoed RFC for an 18th birthday party. The 13th Birthday party in Port Talbot had UV lighting, smoke and laser.
We did a few engagements, a party at Railwaymen’s club, Swansea, and at the Lewis Jones Sports Bar, Gorseinon.
We had a few children’s parties: Children’s disco at Bonymaen RFC, Swansea and a children’s birthday party at Felindre which included Mascot the Robot Dog and a magic show.
Here is our Christmas Party update.
We had quite a few Children’s Christmas Parties:
- Grangetown Catholic Hall
- Neath Longford Memorial Hall
- two at Croeserw Social Club
- a party for children recently hospital, held in Ysgol Bae Baglan
- The Rhyddings Hotel, Swansea
We had our New Year’s Eve disco at Aberavon Beach Hotel, Port Talbot.
The DJ Diamond Dust crew attended a few adults Christmas Parties at Aberavon Beach Hotel, and the Dragon Hotel, Swansea.
There were some birthday parties in Swansea – a 5th birthday show at Birchgrove RFC, and a 60th birthday disco at The Beach Hut Cafe, at Mumbles Pier. We did a 21st Birthday Party disco at Blue Scar in Pontrhydyfen, and a 40th birthday party at the Conservative Club, Llanelli.
Robot Rampage at The Swansea Science Festival 2018
Ethan Gray with Mascot the Robot Dog at the National Waterfront Museum with the Swansea Science Festival 2018
It is Wales’ largest science festival, with a series of themed zones to delight and to educate. Our 8-Foot-Robot-Cat is said to be as unforgettable!
We returned to The Swansea Science Festival. Mascot the Robot Dog and our 8 Foot Robot Cat appeared on Sunday 4th November at the National Waterfront Museum. Ethan Gray provided a vital role in the setup and transportation of the robots.
Our stand, as last year, was in the Upper Foyer (Upstairs) area of the National Waterfront Museum. You could not miss us.
It was amazing the number of adults and children that came over to say hello….some of the others ran away!!!
It was quite something amazing to see the interest shown by teachers from Primary and Secondary school.
Perhaps we might see you at a school near to you soon. Visit our KATT Page for more information.
It was our third year, and we are looking forward to next years’ event.
We want to give a special thanks to Sian Jones, Events and Engagement Officer, and all the staff of the National Waterfront Museum.
We are grateful to Swansea University for all the support, kindness and hospitality they show to us during their event.
It was a privilege to work alongside other scientists and educators.
