Veteran bands from the 1950s, 60s and 70s are being asked to reform by organisers of an arts festival, to recreate the sights and sounds of time past.

The Gwanwyn Festival, held across Wales throughout May, is run by the Age Cymru charity. Organiser Phil Thomas told BBC News: "We're not necessarily talking about the big names, but perhaps the less well-known bands that were so much a part of the way our older people grew up in Wales.

"We want these bands to blow the dust off those old instruments and show the world they've still got what it takes.

"We need music fans from across Wales to encourage some of the groups and bands from the early days of rock 'n' roll to get together again for one night only."

If you are a music fan or musician and would like to be a part of Together Again - For One Night Only, contact the Gwanwyn Festival team on 02920 431555 before 28 February 2011.
