A return to rock for Gower College Swansea students

Two years of Covid restrictions have had a huge impact on the music industry. With performances either banned or heavily restricted, it has been a tough time for aspiring young musicians.

This all changed on Valentine’s Day as the learners took to the Bunkhouse in Swansea for a night of music.
