We hope your summer so far has been delightful but let’s not look back quite yet as there's still a raft of events to enjoy in the next week including the very last train ride on Swansea prom before it parks up for the winter.
GREEN FUSE FESTIVAL Saturday 6 September
All hustle & bustle among the stalls, performers, poets & musicians; 'Green Fuse' is a 'bonanza of acoustic music, poetry, storytelling, promenading theatre and multi-activity art workshops'. The Dylan Thomas legacy is brought to us at Cwmdonkin Park, the place he described as a ‘...world within the world’. Acts include Dunvant Male Voice Choir, Lost Tuesday Society, The Howl Poets, Elysium Gallery, Flossy and Boo and Visiting Dylan Thomas Writing Shed.
‘JACK TO A KING’ Friday 12 September onwards
Swansea City Football Club documentary ‘Jack to a King The Swansea Story’ is being released in cinemas across the UK on Friday 12 September. The film tells the story of the club’s momentous journey from lower rungs of league football to the heights of the Premiership. A group of Swansea City fans came together to save their football club and ended up turning their city into a worldwide brand. The club, sold for £1 in 2001 then achieved the £90m promotion 10 years later. In selected cinemas with Empire Leicester Square playing host to the team at a Gala event on opening night.
