Singer / songwriter performs special gig for students

Updated 23/03/2015

Singer / songwriter – and star of BBC’s The Voice – Bronwen Lewis recently visited Gower College Swansea’s Tycoch campus.

Bronwen met with Hair and Beauty students before performing a selection of numbers from her new album, Pureheart.

There was also a special screening of the film Pride, in which Bronwen appears. Based on a true story, Pride tells the story of a group of lesbian and gay activists who raised money to help families affected by the miners’ strike in 1984.

“We were really excited about welcoming Bronwen to the college and the students were looking forward to meeting an up-and-coming Welsh film star and performer,” says Learning Area Manager Bernie Wilkes. “There was a Q&A session with Bronwen during which the students were able to ask her about her experiences in the film and music industries.”

“The aim of this event was twofold – we wanted to raise awareness of our LGBT community, using the screening of Pride as a talking point - and we also wanted to continue with our Mis Cwl Cymru celebrations by having Bronwen sing to us in English and Welsh.”
