‘Back in 1948, as a nation struggled to overcome the ravages of war, some of Britain’s more visionary towns and cities had the same idea: to launch an annual festival of the arts. Swansea was one of them. Formerly known as the Swansea Festival of Music and the Arts, Swansea International Festival is now one of the major festival events in Wales. It is well established and respected, with a loyal core audience. It also has a clear purpose: a formal, annual opportunity to celebrate the town and its people, bringing the best of the world to Swansea and sharing the best of Swansea with the world.’ Held Late September.

‘Founded in 1968 ... as the West Cross & Mumbles Military Band. By 1970, the band had become the Mumbles Concert Band, and played under that title until March 1984 when, with the permission of the City Council, it changed its name to reflect the area it covers, namely the City of Swansea ... The band is available for hire at any occasion, and can alter numbers of players and music to suit taste. We give regular performances in the local community, and have also performed throughout Wales and parts of England ... We offer a warm welcome to new players of wind or percussion instruments. The band demands a certain instrumental skill of its players, but we try to be as inclusive as possible. We have a wide range of instruments for loan, and an extensive music library.’
