Rock and Raise 2018 returns to Penarth to deliver night of entertainment

The return of Penarth’s Rock and Raise fundraiser has been announced following the success of last year’s event, with the night of entertainment to take place on Saturday 27th October.

The event will be hosted at the town’s iconic Paget Rooms, with doors opening at 7pm and a combination of new and returning bands and performers set to rock the stage.

Chris Kelly returns following last year’s electrifying performance, alongside local family band The Woods. Penarth legend and world-renowned rockabilly performer John Lewis will be appearing and the local six-piece swing band St Louis Express, will be playing hits from the genre’s heyday.

The event will be held in support of the charities Velindre, BOBATH and Kidney Wales, with organisers hoping to eclipse the 250 attendees and tally of £6750 raised at last year’s event.


As the fundraising team build up to the big day, co-organiser Chris Wood said:

“We couldn’t have imagined the response that we would have when we were first organising Rock and Raise but the success has inspired us to deliver a night of great music for a second time.

“The challenge now is to create an evening that’s even bigger and better than last year’s, as we raise money for some great causes at an iconic Penarth venue.”
