Only Men Aloud will headline the Diocese of Swansea and Brecon's centenary celebration festival this Saturday (September 9), and there's still time to book your free tickets.

The festival, which will take place at the Royal Welsh Showground in Llanelwedd, features a host of famous names and will end with a special rendition of a centenary anthem written by Mal Pope.

Director of mission and evangelism Mandy Bayton said: “As a diocese we believe we have much to thank God for, so we want to celebrate our centenary by celebrating God’s goodness and faithfulness.

"Humans are creatures who love a celebration – people love coming together to celebrate, be it winning a rugby game or a football match, a birthday, a wedding or the coronation of a king.

“Strangers become friends at celebrations. We wanted our free centenary celebration festival to bring people from across Wales to celebrate together.

"It’s free because we don’t want cost to exclude anyone, we simply want people to have a good time on us and to bring some joy into lives that may be having a bit of a tough time at the moment.”

The festival will feature performances by Only Men Aloud, Steve Balsamo, Who’s Molly, Ify Iwobi and Builth Wells Male Voice Choir.
