Well Done Dave
at 15:51 8 Oct 2019

A big thank you to Dave Cottle for another great jazz festival. Trying to organise and stage an event like this must be like swimming against the tide on times, but Dave has once again brought fantastic music to Swansea for us all to enjoy. So good to see a Swans Legend there at the last show, hope he had a good time.
On a very sad note, Malcolm “Molly” Duncan of the Average White Band has passed away today. He was due to play at the Festival on Friday with the Hamish Stuart Band but was obviously too unwell. He had previously played here along with Hamish and stunned everyone there with his amazing sax playing. RIP Molly and thanks for the music and memories.

Uplands today till Sunday
at 08:25 2 Oct 2019

Exciting times for Uplands. Starting today and going through until Sunday.
The Swansea International Jazz Festival kicks off with the fantastic saxophonist Alan Barnes and continuing with great artists with a variety of styles and genres .
Many free events happening around the Uplands as well, check them out here...

Don’t be shy, you know you want to get there and hear the wonderful music available over the next few days. Come along and try it, you never know, you might even enjoy yourself.
Makes a great change to watching inept referees spoiling Swans matches for us.

It’s that time again...
at 10:02 2 Aug 2019

Swansea Jazz Festival is happening from 2nd - 6th October.
It’s all taking place in and around The Garage at Whitez in The Uplands.
Dave Cottle has arranged a varied and superb line up again this year, although smaller than previous events, it will still be a great festival. I’m sure you know by now that the funding of the Festival will be by local sponsors, and without the money from the Arts Council of Wales and Swansea City Council will obviously be more condensed than previously, but still with the same high quality musicians on show. Check out the website for more info.

Half time on Wednesday
at 10:48 4 May 2019

Did anyone else see this on Wednesday?
I usually go for a coffee at half time but this time I was so disappointed with the game I just sat in my seat chatting to those around me. The kids were taking penalties, as usual, and I happened to look up at just the right time and saw this...

Great news.
at 10:46 7 Apr 2019

Although there won’t be the usual Jazz Festival this year , a smaller Uplands based festival will take place later in the year .👏👏🤗
Also keep your eyes open for a mini Marina based jazz and blues set of events in pubs and clubs in the near future.

I’ll post more info as and when because I know you all like to keep abreast of the jazz news on this site.
Don’t forget, Friday 12th April, the amazing Jo Harman appearing at The Garage.

Anyone eaten here?
at 08:23 1 Apr 2019

Swansea’s no.1 rated place to eat, according to TripAdvisor, is in Mumbles. Maybe not the restaurant you’d expect.
I’ve not tried it, has anyone on PS sampled the food here? Looks very good.

To those in the West Stand
at 10:16 16 Mar 2019

WELCOME to the Liberty Stadium. This is where the Swans play their home games in the Championship. You may notice that during the game, some noisy people shout at each other from different parts of the ground. Do not worry, this is normal.
Today’s game is a cup match against Manchester City, but you probably know them already. The away fans tend to sing songs about their Queen and a little ditty about “Sheep’s Haggers” ( must be some sort of delicacy in England 😳) whereas the home fans like to shout that “Engerland is full of ships” or something like that. Also a great ancient song about our old King Hari and his trusty steed when Wales was divided into 5 areas.
Join in with the singing if you like, the words are as follows...

And we were singing
Kings and animals
Land of five farmers
Hari had an ‘orse.

I hope you enjoy your visit, and by the way , if you’d like to leave about 10 minutes early that’s not a problem, many people do but please remember to mutter on the way out...
That’s the last time I’m coming here or
Got to catch the bus/train/taxi
Knew they were rubbish before I came. Etc etc.

Come on our boys ! 🤞. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿

Used these changing rooms way back in the early 70’s, as my home ground was Underhill.
Pretty grim then, so it would be great to have the updated pitch and facilities.
