Phil Rixon Tribute

Phil RixonIn January 2014 we were saddened by the passing of Phil Rixon.

Phil was the Mayor of Porthcawl during the first year of the Festival in 2004. He was hugely supportive of the event and in his indomitable way took us up on the suggestion to renew his wedding vows with Cheryl on the seafront, Blue Hawaii style.

He continued to support the event and it is fair to say that Phil was instrumental in helping to make the Festival what it is today. He also came up with the idea of the Elvis Sing-along that we continue in his honour every Friday morning of the Festival.

Thanks for everything Phil – we miss you immensely.
