Millie Davies, a local singing sensation, will also be performing along with a host of other Rhiwbina characters including members of Tenovus’ Cardiff North ‘Sing With Us Choir’.

We’ve also a great local talent in Milly Davies, who has been in pantomime in Northampton. Supporting us will be Cardiff North Sign With Us Choir who practice in Rhiwbina.”
