Hawkwind, Bad Brains, Newport Helicopter & more!

Starting in 2018 we began gathering memories and artefacts from gigs and gig-goers relating to music events in Newport between 1970 and 2010 for a new audio archive and exhibition, celebrating Newport’s commitment to bands, gigs and rock music!

Explore and the archive on to find out who we spoke to and what we heard.

We also made a series of animated shorts putting pictures to memories from the Newport Rock Collecting audio archive and an essential instructional film voiced by Benji Webbe in how to do the Newport Helicopter.
