There will be an art raffle later on in the day, where you can have the chance to win pieces of work from studio artists.

College Street, 5pm – 8pm:
Lurking between street and soil, far from daylight is a network of elysiumgallery artists.
Dredging the murky depths of the former nightclub and emerging on the other side with a reanimated neon reality.
Where a grainy past meets a brighter present, through the use of light and sound.
This exhibition featuring new work from Swansea College of Art photography students is the latest in a continuation of their annual tradition of showcasing into what the up and coming photography artists at the university have been working on over the summer. The show promises to offer a diverse and engaging body of work.
