Send us your Swansea Tale…

To celebrate Swansea’s bid to become UK City Of Culture 2021, we’d love to hear your memories of Swansea and culture in the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s etc  – Did you have a favourite film, band, poet, music, club, theatre, pantomime, youth club or sport or hobbie?

Tell us just one memory which particularly stands out for you…..

Send us a short memory of a moment in time in Swansea – if you can send us a photo of you from this time we’d love to see one!

The best stories and memories will be shared on this page!
