Bryn Terfel, Rebecca Evans And Cerys Matthews Stage Show For Shelter Cymru

St David's Hall, Cardiff
The Shelter Cymru Presidents Concert brings together the stellar line-up of Bryn Terfel, Rebecca Evans and Cerys Matthews to celebrate the charity’s 30th birthday.
The three, who are long time supporters of Shelter Cymru, will be joined by some special mystery guests for a musical extravaganza at St David’s Hall in Cardiff on Thursday 17 November.
Bryn Terfel said: “For 30 years, Shelter Cymru has been working tirelessly to prevent homelessness in Wales and myself as President and Rebecca and Cerys as Vice Presidents are very proud to be involved with a charity that has such a long history of helping some of the most vulnerable people in our society. The current economic situation means that Shelter Cymru is busier than ever and needs all the help and public support it can get to ensure that its services remain available to anyone with housing problems. The 30th birthday concert is a great way to mark such an important milestone, but amid the celebrations I ask people not to forget the thousands of families who would not have a home if it hadn’t been for the work Shelter Cymru does every day across Wales.”
The concert is sponsored by Grwp Gwalia and the artists will be supported by Sinfonia Cymru.
Shelter Cymru is Wales’s people and homes charity. We prevent people losing their homes by providing free, independent, specialist advice. Last year we helped nearly 15,500 people in housing need, preventing homelessness in 90 per cent of relevant cases. We believe that everyone has the right to a decent, secure home. Through our campaigning and lobbying work, we are calling for more homes that people can afford, greater support for anyone with housing problems or facing homelessness and for empty properties to be brought back into use.
