Alan Davies among stars booked for Swansea's Brangwyn Hall
New events announced for the 2013 Brangwyn Hall events programme.
Davies, known for starring in Jonathan Creek and as a permanent panelist on QI, is bringing his Life is Pain stand-up comedy show to the venue on June 26.
He’s one of a number of major acts Swansea Council has arranged for the Brangwyn Hall over the next six months. They include Enter Shikari, Cerys Matthews and Rhydian.
Enter Shikari, a British post-hardcore band, will be appearing on Friday April 12. Headed up by Roughton Reynolds, the four-piece group hit the headlines in 2007 when their debut album reached number four in the Official UK Album Chart. The Brangwyn Hall appearance is part of their Energiser tour.
Rhydian, best-known for reaching the final of the 2007 X Factor, is appearing on Friday February 15. Cerys Matthews, the former lead singer of Catatonia, is appearing on May 31.
Cllr Nick Bradley, Swansea Council’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration, said: “The line-up for the Brangwyn Hall over the next six months is fantastic. It’s a terrific venue that’s hosted many famous acts over the years, and they don’t come much bigger in the UK than people like Alan Davies and Cerys Matthews. This offers local people a great opportunity to see some of the country’s leading stars right here on their doorstep.
“But it’s not just about the big stars. This is why other, more local acts, have also been arranged to ensure the venue maintains its close links with the local community in Swansea and South Wales.”
Other events arranged include the BBC National Orchestra of Wales on February 22, March 8, April 19, May 3 and June 7. The Swansea Bay Beer and Cider Festival is being held at the Brangwyn Hall from April 4 to April 6 and the Morriston Orpheus Choir annual concert will take place on April 13. The Vera Smart Trust concert has been arranged for April 25.
