The South Wales Steampunk Industrialarium! at the Cefn Coed Colliery Museum... What a fantastic day at the Steampunk Spectacular at the Cefn Coed Colliery Museum on Saturday for Sergeant Paul William Harris of the Glamorgan Constabulary Police Re-enactment Group. 'A big thanks for the invite' said Sgt Harris from the organisers and my word there lots to see and do. Steampunkers took up just about every space in the historic rooms, the steampunk costumes were just amazing. That's all I had to do was put on a pair of Steampunk goggles and I was part of the scene. Plenty of entertainment all day long with delicious food and even a mobile bar. It was a photographers dream and I had my share of attention from them and had to pose in all sorts of situations for them. The rain was intermittent but that did not stop the hundreds of people who arrived enjoying themselves. It's on again tomorrow (Sunday) the kids will love it.

fullsizeoutput_e9ec

The shopping Quadrant in Swansea City centre was turned into a TV studio for the day on Saturday to record a new Junior Eurovision program to go alongside the Eurovision song contest.

 

Ronda Media Productions from Cardiff was the company doing the recordings who used six HD cameras for the event. There were miles of cables running from the cameras out to the control units parked in the Quadrant car park.

 

Swansea shoppers gathered in every space available in the Quadrant to watch the young boys and girls perform on a specially constructed stage, and to see how the technical side of recording such an event takes shape.
