Oh, this is looking good!
This is going to be amazing; Lowkey live in Wrecsam, with support from Evrah Rose and Bardd…a night not to be missed!
We’ve got some brilliant speakers lined up for this, including Neville Southall, celebrating the life and politics of Twm Sbaen, the miner from Rhos who joined the International Brigades. Come along and learn more about Twm, and how his struggle is as relevant now as it was 80 years ago.
Kicking off Gŵyl Twm Sbaen Festival this year, we’ve a night of folk and acoustic music, featuring Joe Solo, Nick Ellis, Gwilym Bowen Rhys, Paint Your Guru and Vulpes Urbana. Promises to be a great night, make sure you don’t miss it!
You can now catch up with the festival video at https://youtu.be/ud0JQfG8xqk.
