Martin Thompson

He has appeared  on local and national television, including Noel Edmond’s Multicoloured Swap Shop(BBC 1) and  Pobol y Cwm (S4C). He is a member of Equity.

He started with discos in the late 1970’s and developed a successful children’s show travelling as far as the Isle of Wight. The mid 1980’s to the 1990’s saw the launch of the outdoor roadshow, which has toured most of South and Mid Wales, and as far as London. In the noughies until 2017, he  volunteered at Radio Freeway,  in Morriston Hospital.  The  ‘Dr Ted’ project  used  magic, balloon modelling and music to help child and teenage patients on to the road to recovery.  Martin teaches and does support work in schools and colleges.

Mascot the robot dog, has been a constant companion. To keep up with technology, Martin visited a Robot Wars touring show. The result is an original new creation – an Eight Foot Robot Cat! Mascot II is still the main robot as he is the most predictable.

Tom Hyatt

I’m part of the team and am involved with all aspects of presentation. I became involved with Diamond Dust as a result of being a voluntary member at Morriston Hospital’s Radio Freeway – this is where I met Martin.  The Rest is history.

Diamond Dust has an excellent reputation within the field of children’s entertainment. Martin wants to help me develop my stage presentation skills.  Martin has allowed me to become part of the Diamond Dust team as he wants to give me more job opportunities that involve presenting and broadcasting music to a wide range of audiences.

Outside of Diamond Dust, I am a massive fan of Swansea City football club. 

If there is a DJ you need to perform at a party, disco, carnival or anything else, make sure to contact Diamond Dust. Hope to see you in the future.


How it all started.

It all started in around 1974 with School discos at Amman Valley Comprehensive School during dinner hour on rainy days, usually on a Thursday!

No disco light, except for the one’s fitted on the stage & footlights. The amp was an Eagle 100 watt, 100 volt line mixer amp with Garrard vinyl turntables. The rest is history. We’re still gigging to this day!

Technology has moved on, and we have developed the children’s show, the mobile disco and also the outdoor show with the needs of our customers. We have replaced tungsten projectors with LED lighting, vinyl with CD’s and laptops, and a mono valve amplifier with a flight-cased Bose P.A. system. The theme throughout has always been value for money and care for our customers.
