GREEN ROOM RETURNS
WITH ELVIS-THEMED NIGHT - Above SUSSED
Sustainable Wales, 5, James St., Porthcawl CF36 3BG
“A little satire will add to the fun”.
After a summer break, Sustainable Wales’s ‘Green Room’ performance space recommences with a series of events.
Friday, SEPTEMBER 28, at 8pm, we celebrate the Elvis festival in Porthcawl, with a welcome satirical look at ‘the King’.
There will be Elvis Presley-themed films, and readings from Wales’s finest performance poet, Peter Finch.
Peter will also be speaking about his recent book, ‘The Roots of Rock’ (Seren), in which Elvis, of course, is featured.
Leading Cardiff academic, Dr Daniel Evans, will discuss the ‘class’ element of the Elvis festival.
Co-ordinator of Sustainable Wales, Margaret Minhinnick, says: “The Elvis festival weekend is now well-established. This extraordinary eisteddfod is unignorable in the town, so our charity is making a contribution to the fun.
“ Peter Finch will be sharp! And our popular Open Mike will include film and photographs, drawn from the history of Elvis in Porthcawl.
“Giving a local perspective will be writer Robert Minhinnick, photographer Peter Morgan, musician Gerry Rae and film-maker Paul Woodford.”
Everyone welcome! Croeso cynnes i bawb!
