Valley Aid featuring Mike Peters, James Dean Bradfield, Charlotte Church, Amy Wadge and Andy Fairweather Low

James Dean Bradfield, Mike Peters, Charlotte Church, Amy Wadge and Andy Fairweather Low are headlining at the two night “Valley Aid” Fundriaser at The Factory in Porth on Fri/Sat 13th/14th March.

Cycling star Geraint Thomas, Led Zeppelin legend Robert Plant and rock legend Brian May have donated items to the charity show.

The former Tour de France champion has donated a signed pair of his cycling shoes, while the legendary Queen guitarist has donated a signed guitar, and Robert Plant had donated a must-have package of concert tickets and memorabilia.

Their donations come as two Welsh rock icons, The Alarm’s Mike Peters and Amen Corner frontman Andy Fairweather Low, have been added to the show at The Pop Factory in Porth on Saturday, March 14.

They will appear alongside the previously announced James Dean Bradfield and Amy Wadge at the charity gig put together by Emyr Afan, CEO of media and events company Avanti.

Mike Peters said: “The minute Em called I had seen the pictures on the TV and said without hesitation I’ll be there. I had the same experience 30 years ago around the Towyn floods whilst touring in Scandinavia and we rushed back home to raise funds the only way we know we can. Coming home to the iconic Pop Factory will give an added edge of excitement as we always loved playing there back in the day.”

An auction will be held between the acts that includes many prized items.

These include:

∙ Brian May’s signed ‘Brian May Guitars’ Red Special replica

∙ A limited edition framed lyric sheet of ‘A New South Wales’ by Mike Peters

∙ The guitar which James Dean Bradfield will use during his Valley Aid set, with on body artwork by Manics’ bandmate Nicky Wire

∙ Phil Campbell from Motörhead’s signed guitar

∙ Geraint Thomas’ signed cycling shoes

∙ 2 x tickets to Robert Plant’s Saving Grace show on 19th March in Tenby, along with a Meet & Greet, overnight stay in Tenby and a personally signed deluxe box set of Physical Graffiti and his latest two solo albums ‘Carry Fire’ and ‘Lullaby and the Ceaseless Roar’

∙ Signed jersey by the WRU National Squad


To close the event, a specially assembled live band will take to the stage.
