Because its there

 

20 July - 12 October 2019

The exhibition ‘Because it’s there’ will examine human exploration: the desire to go beyond the horizon, climb the mountain, venture out across the ocean, fly among the stars, to discover something just because it’s there (or rumoured to be there).

Discover the tools and machinery that made navigation and exploration possible and uncover the stories of the brave people who took bold risks in their pursuit of new discoveries.

Love Saves the Day

8pm (doors open 7:30pm)

DJs Les Earthdoctor, Gini and Den have been playing together around Wales as 'Dr. Funkenstein's Music Laboratory' for over 30 years, and are joined tonight by Lord Crasher of Newtown's 'Authentic DJs', to bring you a tribute to David Mancuso's Loft parties.

Featuring much of the music played at his legendary club nights at 'The Loft' in 1970/80s New York, of which 'Love Saves The Day' was the first. His eclectic nights featured everything, from Soul to Disco to Afro to Jazz to early Hiphop to Electronic - whatever the style, it was played to uplift the audience and put a smile on their faces and love in their hearts. The Loft set a standard for club-going, beginning at the dawn of the '70s as a series of invite-only all-night parties thrown by David Mancuso at his Soho apartment. Throughout the years, weathering legal issues and several relocations, the Loft gradually became known as one of the key influences behind club culture - the start of something that has been so important in the lives of many of us.

Unfortunately we can't do it all night this time, but we'll be doing our best to bring you the flavour of his parties!

 

Admission £6 adv / £8 door.

Tomos Williams Quintet - Blue Note and Beyond

The Tomos Williams Quintet will be performing classics from the 1960s, often referred to as the Blue Note Era. Songs that were made famous by such players as Miles Davis, Wayne Shorter, Hank Mobley, Joe Henderson and Horace Silver will come to life in the exquisite surroundings of Ceredigion Museum. Tomos, originally from Aberystwyth, performed at the Museum in November 2018 to a sold out audience with his band 7Steps, and was here back in September with his Welsh jazz/folk outfit Burum. For this concert he has assembled a crack band of many of the best players from the South Wales jazz scene. Expect a night of burning jazz.
