BBC Music Day & 50th Anniversary of Severn Bridge
06 May 2016
To celebrate BBC Music Day and the 50th anniversary of the Severn Bridge, Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Amy Wadge has composed a special song to perform on the bridge. Only Men Aloud will join Bristol's Gospel Generation Community Choir and Renewal Choir at the Aust viewing area to jointly perform the song.
BBC Radio Wales, BBC Radio Bristol and BBC Radio Gloucestershire will broadcast live on BBC Music Day on June 3rd 2016.
The Severn Bridge was opened by The Queen on September 8th, 1966 and replaced the ferry service crossing from Aust to Beachley. The new bridge provided a direct link for the M4 motorway into Wales and has now carried more than 300,000,000 vehicles since it was opened.
