We are delighted to welcome one of Wales most popular female musical performers to the Festival. Lucie grew up in Pentyrch and performed with many local groups before hitting our TV screens in 2009 in the 6th series of X Factor. It was on that show that not only did she find fame, but also her Husband to be, Ethan, who was a fellow contestant. Lucie has accomplished so much in her short career to date. Lucie has just finished touring the UK as Elle Woods in Legally Blonde, The Musical.
In January 2017, Lucie won the public vote on BBC2 show Eurovision- You Decide with her original song, ‘Never Give Up On You’. She competed at the Eurovision World Final in Ukraine in May.

Lee makes a welcome return to the festival, after performing at last years successful Dinner. Lee was born in the Rhondda Valley, South Wales into a musical family. His first leading theatrical role was that of Frederick in The Pirates of Penzance. This was a new departure musically and one Lee thoroughly enjoyed. From there he went on to play various and challenging roles in productions including: “Fiddler on the Roof”, “Follies”, “Sweeney Todd” and “The King and I”. His leading roles include Judas – Jesus Christ Superstar; Tony – West Side Story; and Darryl Van Horne in the Welsh premiere of The Witches of Eastwick. He toured nationally, creating the role of Will Hay in the original production of Michael Bogdanov’s Amazing Grace written by Mal Pope, for the Wales Theatre Company. He has performed in live concerts across the country. The highlight so far being a concert version of West Side Story, playing Tony, fronting the Robert Mandell Melachrino String Orchestra and full Philharmonic choir.
