Forthcoming Events

Hot on the heels of the Friend’s Acoustic Music fundraiser last Friday, there are two more events coming up. 

RACHEL NEWTON   14 February 2020 –  £8 to Friend’s (saving £5)

A world class act in Pontardawe – come and hear for yourself.  Friends get a discount if you buy before 7 February. What’s not to like?  Singer and harpist Rachel Newton performs traditional folk songs in English and Gaelic and her own music. Rachel plays fiddle viola and harp.  Her accolades are many! Rachel was awarded Instrumentalist of the Year 2016 at the Scots Trad Music Awards and Musician of the Year in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2017. 

The offer is a special discounted price of £8 for Friends of Pontardawe Arts Centre so a nice incentive to become a Friend or to renew membership.
