    • Opening up will be Shango and Chef (formerly Simon Knight’s acoustic duo) to get the evening warmed up

    • Next will be Welsh Folk band "Madog" playing traditional Welsh music for your delectation and delight. Or beer! Toe tapping tunes and infectious songs. Just like a traditional music St Vitus' Dance cum Bubonic Plague, but without the bubos and coughing up blood and stuff. If we’re lucky "Madog" may even be joined by Caradog, largely on harp, who used to play for the National Youth orchestra but is now slumming it with them.

    • And our headliners Rockhouse will be joining us from Newport to finish off our night with a bit of old school rock to get people up and dancing.
