Peter Finch – the Chief Executive of Academi, Cardiff historian and writer John Williams, writer Des Barry and musician Heather Jones will be playing a benefit gig to help save The Vulcan.

On Thursday 12th March at 7.30pm, these creative forces will join together to provide a night of literary magic and musical merriment in one of Cardiff’s oldest pubs – The Vulcan Hotel. All are welcome to attend.

The Vulcan Hotel in Adamsdown, Cardiff is due to be demolished this June to make way for a multi-storey car park. Campaigners are working night and day to ensure The Vulcan thrives for future generations.

Local campaigner Joe Cable says, “I’m glad these high profile writers hold The Vulcan in such high esteem, and are giving up their time to fight for such an important cause. It’s not just the locals that care”.

Campaigner Rachel Thomas added, “I’m thrilled that these talented individuals will be sharing their work in one of Cardiff’s oldest pubs. This is history in the making”.
