Rock and Raise 2018 returns to Penarth on Saturday 27th October 2018
The return of Penarth’s Rock and Raise fundraiser will take place on Sat 27th October following the success of last year’s event. The event will be hosted by TV presenter Rhydian Bowen Phillips at the town’s iconic Paget Rooms. Doors open at 7pm and music starts at 7.30pm with a combination of new and returning bands and performers set to rock the stage.
Chris Kelly returns following last year’s storming performance and local family band The Woods will also play their set. Buster, Rosco & Friends are an act full to the brim with the best young musical talent straight out of the Royal Welsh College of Music Drama. Penarth legend and world-renowned rockabilly performer John Lewis will be appearing and local six-piece swing band St Louis Express, will be playing hits from the genre’s hey-day.
The event will be held in support of charities Velindre, BOBATH and Kidney Wales, with organisers hoping to eclipse the 250 attendees at last year’s events, where £6,750 was raised.
As the fundraising team build up to the big day, co-organiser Chris Wood said: “We couldn’t have imagined the response that we would have when we were first began organising Rock and Raise but the success has inspired us to deliver a night of great music for a second time.
“The challenge now is to create an evening that’s even bigger and better than last year’s, as we raise money for some great causes at an iconic Penarth venue.”
Tickets are available on line from WWW.TICKETSOURCE.CO.UK/ROCKNRAISE or in person from David Baker Estate Agents & Osmond Drakes Opticians, Penarth. Standard £15, VIP £30.
