Noson Lawen Ers 1982

First broadcast in 1982, Noson Lawen has proved to be successful with an audience of all ages. The different weekly acts are often described as traditional entertainment, whether they were singers, choirs, musicians or comedians. By paying tribute to their Welsh roots, the audience used to sit on straw bales with acts performing on a typical farm trailer.

Over the years, the look and feel of the series has changed dramatically. The audience these days sit on comfortable seats, the sets are contemporary but the heart of the series still beats strongly. Noson Lawen is recorded at various centres all over Wales and have offered an early stage to some of the biggest talents in Wales including Bryn Terfel, Connie Fisher and Katherine Jenkins.
