Event description

Description

Join us on a wander through Swansea City Centre and be introduced to the iconic venues of High Street and beyond. Your guides will give first hand accounts of the bands and legends that have played in the city as you visit Swansea’s forgotten, lost and neglected venues which kept the city bumpin’ from the 60s to the early 2000s

A unique guided tour with a few surprises along the way, Venue Hop will offer a unique introduction to Swansea’s cultural heritage. There might even be a chance for a cheeky pint along the way too.

Swansea Scenes is an oral history project run my Swansea Music Art Digital and supported by Heritage Lottery and Swansea University's Connected Communities

-----------------------------

High Street has been one of Swansea’s vibrant social spaces since the 1800’s, in that time playing host to; a musical hall, Wales’ first cinema, a bingo halls, Wales’ first gay club, theatres, dance clubs and live music pubs.

The diversity of building uses in this street makes it stand out as a unique hub of social activity in Swansea and regularly shows up in the histories of fringe communities such as South Wales LGBT communities, post-’94 rave scene, and the punk scene, as a space of refuge before their acceptance and assimilation into the mainstream.
