Rhyl Reflections at The Fair – Part 2


Rhyl Reflections – 7th July 2016 – Back at Tir Prince

Last week the team headed back to Tir Prince Fun Park to film some exciting cut aways!


The lovely folk at Tir Prince Fun Park once again allowed use of the fair for  our session last week.  This time, the aim of the shoot was to film much needed cutaway shots of rides and delicious treats that could accurately represent what was available on Rhyl Fun Fair in the 1960’s.


The group samples lots of the food at the fair…all in the name of the film, of course!  Our favourites included the freshly cooked  donuts and burgers.


TAPE member of staff Tom Ellis braved terrifying rides such as the Waltzers, bumper cars and the caterpillar ride (the later he was joined on by Rhyl Reflections group member John)! It is safe to say that this was one of the most enjoyable shoots of the project.



The group would like to thank Tir Prince Fun Park and all their wonderful staff for helping make the shoot possible and a huge thank you to all of the team who were involved on the day.

Special thanks to those of the group who stayed behind and did vital editing for the final film. Fantastic work by all.

And as always, we thank the wonderful Linda Hurst for her brilliant photos.

Poke The Muse – July Update!


Poke the Muse at TAPE has had confirmation that thanks to funding from Conwy Communities First and the continued support of creative partners Conwy Wellbeing Team and Conwy Arts, the Open Studio sessions on a Monday afternoon will now be running regularly right the way through to March 2017!

PtM figure web sized
The only breaks will be for Bank Holidays, so if you can carve out a couple of hours between 1.30 and 3.30, come along to enjoy some creative ‘me’ time.  No pressure to produce, just freedom to explore and play with paper, pens, paints, inks, stamps, pencils, collage, words, images: whatever you fancy.  Inspiration and prompts are offered around monthly themes, but you are welcome to work on your own project or simply have fun with the materials and equipment.


July’s theme
 is Victoriana.  We’ve tried to include a bit of everything from inventions and discoveries, through social, political and industrial upheavals to the Pre-Raphaelites and Steam Punk – our current take on some of the intriguing machines, inventions, art, fashion and fiction of the era.



Next Monday July 11th Poke the Muse at TAPE is a little different.
Following what will probably be a shorter open studio session we are going to set the hall up for an Open Mic event for people to read and perform their work.
It is also a celebration to mark the publication of Poke the Muse’s first collection of writing and artwork.

Please feel free to bring yourself, friends and family to enjoy the show, have a look at the exhibition of work produced in sessions and buy a copy of The Collection!
















Sessions are £1 contribution per person – refreshments are available at 50p each.  booking is essential as places are limited.
