Chapter 50 - Pavilions in the Park, 1970 Posted on 24 Apr 2020


Next year we celebrate our 50th Birthday. To mark this momentous occasion, we’re looking back through our archive at some of the incredible events, exhibitions, gigs, gatherings and people who’ve made Chapter what it is today.

This week, in the spirit of thinking outside of our walls, we bring you Pavilions in the Park from 1970. Eight weeks of remarkable presentations held in Bute Park, Cardiff and Belle Vue Park, Newport.

We think this image captures the spirit of the seventies brilliantly – plus it channels a bit of the post-lockdown party vibes we’re hoping for!
