Half a century’s worth of eye-catching music memorabilia is helping Swansea to celebrate its first 50 years as a city.

The treasure trove of modern musical heritage includes instruments, written memories, posters, records, gig tickets, books, magazines and stage wear.

It includes fond memories of local names such as Badfinger, national icons like Adam and the Ants, pop, rock, dance, jazz, choral music – and much more.

The exhibition – 50 Years of Music – has just launched at Swansea Council’s Swansea Museum.

Robert Francis-Davies, the council’s cabinet member for investment, regeneration and tourism, said: “This exhibition is a striking addition to Swansea’s celebration of our first 50 years as a city.

50 Years of Music is being run by the Fusion Programme, a Welsh Government-funded programme managed in Swansea by the council’s cultural services team. Fusion enables individuals and communities to benefit from participating in culture, arts and heritage.
