Wedding DJ in Swansea

Written by   in 

Morgan’s Hotel is the most recent wedding DJ function we attended. Everyone was kept happy with the requests and the music to keep the guests up and dancing. A good time was had by all!

The venue has a ramp and a lift so it was reasonably easy to get all the equipment on the first floor. It was really nice to see the staff so friendly and helpful. It amazed me how quick and organised they were at setting up and tiding up.

Party DJ in Swansea We’re continuing to do party discos in Swansea. Our most recent is in Bonymaen Rugby Football Club. It was a football presentation night for the Junior Division. We have plenty of requests, as usual. We used our radio microphones for the presentation and announcements that were important for the running of the event. We play the songs that are requested, and that the crowd are kept dancing. Keep visiting the blog to see more news.

Swansea University and STEM Ambassadors

Written by   in 

I went to Swansea University on Friday, 20 May 2016, to find out about STEM Ambassadors ( Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).

 I have been invited to join STEM with the possibility of running a robot roadshow for schools. Watch this space!

These Ambassadors of Science are the only UK’s network of over 30,000 brilliant and inspiring people who promote STEM subjects to young learners.

The Ambassadors can be zoologists, engineers and farmers. There some that are designers, geologists, nuclear and physicists. You can meet physicists, chemistry technicians, pharmacists and architects.

Diamond Dust Children’s Parties in Cardiff

It’s getting busier as we get nearer the warmer months. We’ve travelled quite a bit at the moment. We’ve been in the Cardiff area again this month. We’ve been to a house party in Fochrew, Bargoed.

We lit the living room up with lights, not too many, created a lovely party atmosphere. The four-year-old birthday party included the disco, Mascot the Robot Dog, magic, balloon modelling and games. Great fun!

The Diamond Dust Children’s show is adaptable enough for a small house party to a large function hall, and even an outdoor event. We’ve got an outdoor one soon.

Martin Thompson, the children’s entertainer, has worked many times in:

  • Cardiff and Aberdare, Cardiff and Barry
  • Bridgend, Caerphilly and Cowbridge
  • Dinas Powys, Merthyr Tydfil, and Mountain Ash
  • Pontypridd, Penarth and Tonypandy

Keep checking our Posts to see how our adventure continues.

DJ in Cardiff

We had a rather busy time in the Cardiff area this month. We had a 40th birthday party in The Waterfront, Porthcawl. DJ Diamond Dust was a success with a 13th birthday party with a teenage UV party in Llynfi Coach House, Caerau, Maesteg. We run the music to suit the age range and tastes of the audience. The important thing is to remember to play the requests, letting the music keep the audience tapping their fingers and toes, and getting the party up and dancing. DJ Diamond Dust has an excellent variety and range of lighting to suit the mood, from par cans, upgrade of the mirror ball, to UV lighting. We aim to please.

Mascot the Robot Dog in Tenby

The summer is getting nearer, and we have already started our Holiday Park shows. We regularly entertain children at New Minerton Leisure Park in Tenby throughout the summer months. We did one show last year at Brownhills Holiday Park, Synod Inn, Llandysul. This year we are doing more during the summer.

Mascot, the Robot Dog, is proving to be very popular. The show also includes games, activities, magic, balloon models and our state-of-the-art disco. We look forward to more gigs in other holiday parks in the South and mid-Wales regions this summer! We keep the music current and add a couple of classic tracks. We add summer tunes to our playlists. We don’t forget the requests.

Diamond Dust Children’s Show in Cardiff

We’ve just done a Children’s Party at Murchfield Community Centre, Dinas Powys – really great party.

Martin Thompson and his team have worked as children’s entertainers in Cardiff many times. We have performed at:

  • Howell’s of Cardiff
  • St Joseph’s Social Club
  • Civil Service Club
  • Club Lennox in Bargoed
  • Ynysangharad Park in Pontypridd
  • Star Leisure Centre in Splott
  • Danescourt Church Hall in Cardiff
  • Wyevale Garden Centre in Cardiff, Carmarthen and Swansea
  • Municipal Club in Cardiff

Martin has even appeared live on BBC 1 television with the original Mascot the Robot Dog in Cardiff Castle.

Martin Thompson as a children’s entertainer in Cardiff works well in many settings, including clubs, community centres, factory Christmas parties for children and schools.

The emphasis is on getting the children, and some of the adults to join in.  There are parts where they can sit down together to watch the less energetic parts of the show.

Martin and the team provide entertainment which is different from other children’s entertainers and birthday party package entertainment. We are interactive with the audience and are one of the longest established children’s entertainer businesses in South Wales.

We do birthday parties in Cardiff.  We have a mixture of entertainment and have unique and unusual aspects, such as the robot dog and the 8-foot-robot-cat!

Robot Rampage

Written by   in 

This month we have completed the test runs for our 8-Foot-Robot-Cat. We’ll keep you posted. It all happened at Birchgrove Community Centre, Swansea. It was the first time that we had enough floor space to test out our newest robot.

We realised how fast she could move. It was at this point we realised that the radio control was handy, but we could in the future be quite a distance from our machine. It was vital that we did more tests. We had to work on how to slow down the robot and what safety devices we could add to make it safer.

The test run helped a great deal in our plans for the future. We could see the potential of the KATT for the future.
