Elysium are proud to present an evening with Swansea legend Ray Loughler-Jones.

Very few people have seen life from as many angles as Ray Jones. After a regular upbringing in a working-class area of Swansea, Ray left for London. He settled in Ladbroke Grove and became a key figure in the burgeoning music and art scene emerging from the boho pubs around Notting Hill.

He has toured with Joe Strummer, hung out behind the scenes in Paris fashion houses and courted a succession of rich and famous women. He also launched The Roughler magazine from the Warwick pub in Portobello Road, and ran Dylan’s bar in San Francisco before being more dramatic turns left him looking for new opportunities.

Join us for an evening of stories, songs and poems, and maybe even a special guest or two.
