The Commune Returns! July 6 Porthcawl
Confirmed so far: the infamous S.E.X., Nick Ward, Badlands, Rebecca Hurn, Peter Morgan (electronica), Jordan Marks, and more to follow!
From the mellow acoustics of up-and-coming Porthcawl-local, Rebecca Hurn, and the new-wave-inspired Nick Ward, the evening is sure to inspire, intrigue and entertain. Bridgend’s most exciting rock band, S.E.X., will headline; keeping the flame of 80’s glam alive right here in Porthcawl. More acts to be confirmed. S.E.X.’s front man, Phil Jones, is happy to support the cause, but also joked, “it’s difficult fronting a glam-rock band, especially when, I, the band’s most senior member [by 30 years], is the only slightly glamorous one”. In the meantime, here’s a draft of the poster for the Commune Summer Event 2013…

Event in May - Bridgend gig

WMD: A performance of new material as part of the Green Room event “Mouth to Mouth” in May 2011 at Bauhuas in Bridgend, S Wales on Saturday 28 May. Startlingly new material will be performed with Rhian Edwards (vocals, Uke etc.). This collaboration will be created under a new moniker. And possibly hats. We may well be joined by other musicians - check back for more information soon. Part of the Arts for the Earth Arts Council of Wales sponsored series of events.

Event: Green Room 8th October

ARTS FOR THE EARTH* ‘GREEN ROOM’ LAUNCH backs the 10:10:10 ( global action day on Climate Change. October 8th, Grand Pavilion from 7.30pm. Organisers say the evening promises to surprise, exhilarate, engage, enthuse and enlighten. Tickets £6.00 and £4.00

Sustainable Wales’s Director, Margaret Minhinnick, says of the new arts initiative: “The Green Room brings two crucial areas of life together – environmental concern and the human imagination. We depend on them utterly for everything that’s best in our culture. They are inextricably linked.

Supported by the Arts Council of Wales and the Grand Pavilion we trust local people will support it. “Further ‘Green Room’ events will be taking place through autumn and spring. These will include leading arts practitioners from Wales, involve performances and also intimate conversations and interviews”.

“The arts are vital in any expression of concern regarding our current climate emergency. The event takes place 2 days in advance of the international day of action on climate change to convince people to cut their carbon emissions by 10% in 2010.” ( )

Future events will take place at other locations organised by Sustainable Wales. Contact 01656 783405,
