THE EASTER HOLIDAYS. WHERE, TO GO. WHAT TO SEE. Even the retirement of Sir Henry Camp- bell Bannerman and the formation of a new Government is of minor interest to the vast majority of those who live in in- dustrial centres when compared with the all important question as to where the Easter Holidays shall be spent. no vacation at Eastertide is1 probably one of the most important of the year, coming as it does after a long dreary winter and heralding the,alpproa,ch of the long sunny days, of early summer. At Llandudno the number of visitors is confidently expected to exceed even last year's record from the number of inquiries received at hotels, hydros, and boarding houses. Bookings have been exceedingly heavy during the past few weeks, and at several establishments every available room has been taken. The pro- gramme of entertainments, as will. be seen by the detailed list given below, is of a most compreihensive and varied character. This evening (Thursday) the Pier Con- cert Season will open, when Miss Lucy Nuttall, the Ipromising young contralto, who won golden opinions from her audiences last autumn, will be the vocalist, and ,at the special concert on Saturday evening Miss Cecile, Brani, one of the principal vocalists at Covent Gar- den Opera, during four seasons, in French, Italian, and German Opera, and who appeared as Mercedes at Windsor Castle in "Carmen, with Madame Colne and Madame Eiames. On April 17th and 21st to 24th, Mr Denbigh Cooper, who has proved himsedf so popular a vocalist, is programmed. "Is Marriage a Failure," a farcical comedy in three acts, is to be presented at the Grand Theatre on Saturday, April 18th, -and the Monday, Tuesday and Wed- nesday following. This play comes fro n Terry's Theatre, where it had a very suc- cessful run, and presented by an excellent company, should prove an attractive "bill of fare" at the Grand. At the Prince's- Theatre a Musical Eisteddfod is announced! for Good Fri- day evening, and on Saturday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday., "Sapho" will be ,staged, this to be followed on Thursday by a three nights' performance, of that favourite comedy, "In the Soup." The Pier Varieties is a favourite resort with a large number of visitors, and for the holidays a special series of most realistic pictures have been arranged. Those who delight in the exhilarating pastime of skating have the opportunity afforded at the new skating ring, which was formerly Rivieres Hall. 'The crowds which daily repair to, the rink have surprised even the management, and it is certain that Llandudno's latest attrac- tion will be as -popular with visitors as with residents. Given fine weather coaching will be as attractive as of yore, and the Llandudno Coaching Comjpany's tours will include daily excursions to such favourite beauty spots as Bettwisycoed, Penmaenmawr, and other places of interest in the district. A special list of trips, ha,s been arranged' by the Llandudno Motor Garage Com- pany with their motor charabancs. These will include the Abergilaslyn Loop, the LllaI)jhe'l'is Loop, the Bethesda Loop, and Bettwsycoed. Again this year the- Liverpool and North Wales ,steamship Company will bring passengers from Liverpool to Llandudno daily during the holidays, and later pro- ceed to the Menai Straits, a trip that will be much patronised under favourable climatio conditions. Trams to the summit of tihei Great Orme will run every few minutes-, a means of reaching this fine old headland which is much appreciated. To golfers using the Great Orme Links this tramway is -a real boon. On the links at the West Shore visitors will also be able to obtain excel- lent games, the greens being in perfect condition. A new Bowling Green has been made, and will be open for practice on Good Friday. This ground, which should be well patronised, is now located on the Recreation Ground, Gloddaeth Street. Holiday engagements have also been entered into by the Llandudno Amateur Football Club and the Llandudno Hockey Olub.
