Time Credits

Time Credits Logo 

Here at St David’s Hall we are very pleased to be involved with the Time Credits scheme. Run by Tempo (formerly Spice) a charity started in Wales in 2008 the scheme is now at work across the UK. Their vision is one of strong, connected communities where everyone’s time is valued. 

Time Credits are a way of recognising the amazing things people do in their communities, with everyone’s time worth the same, volunteering at one of the many projects taking part in the scheme. These range from Wales Wildlife Watch, Global Gardens, Recovery Cymru, Whitchurch Cycling Club, Work Clubs in Rhondda Cynon Taf and many other great projects. The credits can then be spent at many leisure outlets, including selected events at St David’s Hall and New Theatre.

  • Hot Club of Cowtown
    Tuesday 26 April 2022, 8pm
    Level 3 Lounge | 2 credits 

    Since its beginnings in the late 1990s, the Hot Club of Cowtown’s star has continued to rise as its reputation for jaw-dropping virtuosity and unforgettable live shows has become the band’s global brand. Lauded for its “down-home melodies and exuberant improvisation” (The Times, London), the Hot Club has always woven a combination of seemingly disparate styles together to its own magical effect, setting up camp “at that crossroads where country meets jazz and chases the blues away” (The Independent), remaining “conscious always that above all else, the music is for dancing and an old-fashioned good time” (New York Times). The band’s musical alchemy has been described as “another breathless journey in the Texas tardis” (The Times, London), while American Songwriter observed that “the excellent three players of this band could be doing anything but have chosen to honor the greats of jazz and swing with their sound.” The Belfast Telegraph calls the Hot Club of Cowtown “a pretty much perfect country trio at the very top of their game,” and the New York Times, in a live review the trio as armed with “an arsenal full of technique and joy.”
