Flash mob sings for St David's


A singing flash mob demonstration took place outside St David’s Hall on Saturday to protest against the proposed sale of the running of the venue.

Around 70 people gathered to sing Bread in Heaven and Calon Lan. While the protesters sung a petition was handed around and signed by hundreds of passers by.

A flash mob is a group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place. They normally gather to perform a pointless act in the name of artistic expression, but on this occasion the concept was utilised as a form of protest. 

                  Helen Griffith, founder of the online petition against the proposed sale, came up with the idea of a flash mob. David Hutchings co-ordinated the event.

                  The petition has now reached more than 5,300 signatures in a week.
