Menter Iaith Abertawe are pleased to announce the full details for this year’s Gŵyl Tawe on Saturday the 10th of June at Swansea’s National Waterfront Museum.
Joining the music line up in the afternoon will be Rogue Jones and Gillie. This will be Rogue Jones’ first live performance in support of their acclaimed second album “Dos Bebés”, while Gillie’s recent singles “i ti” and “Llawn” on Libertino Records have seen rave reviews and performances at Focus Wales.
Already announced to be performing across the festival’s Creative Wales open-air stage and the Gower College Swansea stage in the heart of the museum are Ani Glass, Hyll, Lloyd x Dom + Don, Los Blancos, MR, Sage Todz, She’s Got Spies, SYBS, and The Gentle Good, with a headline set from Adwaith closing the evening. The full timetable is available here.
Starting the event in the morning will be an interactive theatre show for families from Familia de la Noche. Come join Frogs in Bogs, the superhero frog plumbers, to crack a clogging crime and defeat the evil Toilet Duck in this new, hilarious, all-jumping, all-dancing, blockbusting show for all the family! This will be followed by variety of performances from local schools including choirs, dance groups, and instrumentalists.
The foyer of the museum will see stalls and activities from partners such Gower College Swansea, Siop Tŷ Tawe, the Taliesin Arts Centre, the Mission Gallery, and the Mudiad Meithrin. Technocamps will offer STEM activities, and the artist Rhys Padarn will offer a workshop enabling attendees to create some of his iconic Orielodl artwork. There will also be opportunities to enjoy story and song sessions from Cymraeg i Blant, and to receive taster lessons from Learn Welsh Swansea Bay Region in the museum’s Learning Rooms. The festival is completely free to attend and will run between 10:00 and 20:00. The event is delivered in partnership with Museum Wales, and with support from Swansea Council, the Arts Council of Wales, Gower College Swansea, and Welsh Government via Creative Wales.
