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.

     After embarking on a solo career, releasing his debut solo album The Unfinished Violin on Island. 
     Records and touring it to sell-out crowds on the 2019 album launch tour, Sam is releasing his 
     highly anticipated second solo album in Spring 2020.  

     Sam and his new band are putting something into English music that has never been there
     before.  This album has the swagger and groove of traditional English music with the huge sound,
     flair, energy and festival spirit of bands coming out of the Celtic and Scandinavian music scenes. 

     The new album occupies a very different sound to The Unfinished Violin.  Leaving string sections,
     piano, and harmonium behind, the new band features acoustic and electric guitars and double 
     bass.
