BEATS NOT BOMBS - Multi-Genre Live Music Fundraiser

--------------------------------BEATS NOT BOMBS-----------------------------------

Beats Not Bombs is a Multi-Genre live music event put on to raise money for Swansea's homeless and most in need!

16/03/2018 - Creature Sound - £2.50 Suggested Donation - 18+

We've seen a horrific recent clamp down on

the homeless community on our streets and the gentrification of Swansea has left too many vulnerable people unable to make ends meet.
South Wales AF and Funktion Tek have decided to come together to dedicate an event to raising funds for Food Not Bombs who hit the streets and provide meals to those in need, a cause that's helping to keep people fed and to survive austerity!
We will also be working closely with Unity Wales to help them to continue providing their essential services around our community!
