Tonypandy. At the Hippodrome, Tonypandy, on Thursday last, a grand concert was given by the Royal Oakeley Silver Band (Blaenau Festiniog, North Wales), under the conductorship of Mr. J. E. Fidler. This band has had a very successful career, being winners of the North Wales Chal- lenge Cup three years in succession; also over £3,000 in prizes. The band was assisted by Mr. Tudor Owen, A.R.C.M.

The items on the programme were thoroughly enjoyed by the audience, as was evinced by the recep- tion given to the band and artistes. Mr. R. O. Jones, C.P.T.C.L. (organist of Towyn Parish Church), fulfilled the duties of accompanist in a very efficient manner. The band have organised a series of con- certs in South Wales to aid the North Wales quarrymen who are suffering severely from the great depression in the slate trade. The band was successful in winning the first prize of E20 at the National Eistedfood held in Swansea last week.
