UP and coming bands in Newtown are being given the opportunity to play in front of an audience of hundreds of people.

Newtown AFC is looking for local bands to perform on match days at Latham Park, when JD Cymru Premier football resumes after the coronavirus pandemic.

It will help broaden the club’s match day entertainment, and also give aspiring musicians the chance to gain more exposure.

A spokesman for Newtown AFC said: “Calling all local bands! We are looking for bands to play at Latham Park on match days.

“If you’re looking for some extra exposure and coverage on our social media platforms then please DM us.”

Due to the pandemic there will be no football played in Wales until at least May 15, but there are hopes JD Cymru Premier football can resume in June.

For any bands looking to get involved, they can send a Direct Message to the club through Twitter or the Newtown AFC Facebook page.

The club’s Twitter handle is @NewtownAFC
