Pippa Longworth was unable to make the performance  as she was iced up in Sussex.
In order not to disappoint us Karl Daymond  performed a wonderful Christmas pot pouri one man show in front of a roaring fire in the beautiful setting of Tregwynt Ballroom.

Fishguard Arts Society had a very successful 'Big Draw 2010' in Fishguard Market Hall. The Big Draw in Fishguard was officially opened by the Mayor, Bob Wheatley. Many visiting shoppers joined in as did some of the traders.
 Quote from a trader,"I haven't done anything like this since school and I have really enjoyed it".. and he took his home at the end of the day!

The work was displayed in the Fishguard Library Gallery
