SEREN YN CODI SEMI FINAL TICKETS
It's almost Seren Yn Codi / Rising Star semi-final time again and tickets are on sale now for just £7!!!
This year we had over 75 applications from some of the finest new burlesque and cabaret performers from around the world with acts fewer than two-years old. This is the most we've ever received for a Seren Yn Codi and we were blown away by the response this year. So thank you to everyone who took the time to apply.
Sadly we can't invite everyone who applied to be part of the semi-final so we took August to narrow it down to our top scoring 20 acts.
The semi-final will be taking place at the Conwy Comrades Club in the medieval town of Conwy in North Wales where we'll be looking to find our six finalists who will be joining us for the final in January.
Five performers will be chosen by our judges and one by you, our audience.
Hosted by Erwyd the Conwy Jester its sure to be a fantastic night of fun for everyone.
SEREN YN CODI 2019 FINAL RESULTS
Mizz Twisted Cherry
Mizz Twisted Cherry became the first person in our 6-year-history to be awarded a platinum level award at the grand final of the Seren Yn Codi in January 2019.
Not only that; but Mizz Cherry also walked away with the Audience Choice Award.
If you missed her last time make sure you get to see this phenomenal rising star in 2020.
Emila Topaz smashed it with her "Fighter" act at NWBCF. 2019 and went home with a Gold Award. Do yourself a favour and seek this act out, you won't be disappointed.
Just when you thought you were able to catch a breather Celeste Etoile went and blew the audience away with her "This Fairy Can" act and won the second Gold Award of the 2019 festival. Do yourself a favour and seek her out.
Very few people are brave enough to enter the Seren Yn Codi twice, but Amore Rocks did just that.
Amore made it to the semi-final in October 2017 but just missed out on a place in the final. So she re-entered and got through to the semi-final once again in 2018 and landed a spot in the Grand Final in Jan 2019 where she won a well-deserved Silver Award.
"I hate balloon pop acts... With the exception of one. And that's Tiger Rose's balloon pop act. Wow, just wow!" - Erwyd the Conwy Jester.
And it was that balloon pop act that came to the final of the Seren Yn Codi at NWBCF. 2019 and won a Silver Award.
