CELEBRITY broadcaster and Welsh icon Roy Noble opened 12 days of Adult Learners Fortnight at Port Talbot central library in the Aberafan Shopping Centre on Saturday (May 12).
Introduced by Paul Doyle of library services, Roy entertained his audience with lively and frequently humorous recollections of life in the Bryn Amman Valleys, his family heritage and his career.
Before the hour-long talk, Roy spent time talking to friends and fans, and he concluded the visit by signing copies of his new book, Noble Ways: Lay-bys in My Life.
The event took place at the newly refurbished library, which offers a new range of facilities and a new look.
Over the coming weeks, Adult Learners Fortnight will include a wide range of talks on subjects including Reiki, meditation, unsolved mysteries and old Aberafan, and climaxing with a talk on the Borgias by local historian and novelist Sally Jones.
