SWANSEA FESTIVAL OF
MUSIC AND THE ARTS
Despite celebrating its 60th this year, Swansea’s annual Music
And Arts Festival doesn’t look like it’s ready to hit the hay just yet.
Washing up onto its shores this year is a plethora of exotic virtuo-
sos including the BBC Orchestra of Wales, Zimbabwean dancers
and an Estonian national dance troupe. The autumn arena offers
a wealth of goings-on in various venues across the city; think
visual arts exhibitions, literature recitals and opera. Choir singing,

A SONG FOR JACK
Paws for a moment and spare a thought
for the legend of Swansea Jack, a retriever
who saved the lives of drowning swimmers
in the 1930s. To commemorate the hero,
the winners of the Canine Choir competi-
tion, nicknamed Rex Factor (yes, really),
will perform outside Swansea’s National
Waterfront Museum on Sun 5 in memory of
their beloved ancestor. Celebrate brave ol’
Jack’s antics by seeing the dynamic doggies
for yourself at midday (yes, really, a group
of singing dogs for your viewing pleasure).
It’ll be a howl.
