Tresor (Treasure) is Gwenno Saunders’ third full length solo album, and the second almost entirely in Cornish. The album reveals an introspective focus on home and self – a prescient work echoing the isolation and retreat that has been a central, global shared experience, over the past two years. On Tresor, Gwenno’s unique voice and spiritual electronic production provide a beautiful soundscape as psychedelically tinged as her previous work. Sounds range from Venice to Vienna, layering cultural and historical atmospheres and decoupling the use of Cornish from any geographic determinism, to allow for an expression of imaginative spaces that are truly free. A member of the Pipettes who has since performed with artists including Suede, Elton John and the Manic Street Preachers, Gwenno brings an artistic cadre steeped in character and quality.
‘Tresor’ (Opening Film)
Written, directed & produced by Gwenno and shot by Clare Marie Bailey :
Tresor the film, is inspired by surrealist filmmakers such as Sergei Parajanov, Agnes Varda, and Alejandro Jodorowsky, and reflects Gwenno’s growing interest in film and the intersection of music with visual components. Filmed in Wales and Cornwall, Tresor evokes a dreamworld from another time, surreal, and sensual, saturated with light and colour.
“Born out of the Bangor Conservatoire of Music in the Kingdom of Gwynedd, Dean Lligwy brings a sense of serene melancholy and spiritual longing through the medium of hypnotic Celtic ambient loops.”
Stone Club (DJ set)
Recreating prehistory since 2021.

Stone Club believes the journey is as important as the destination and encourages people to pause and think about place in new ways; connecting ancient sites through community and conversation Stone Club aims to bring new perspectives to prehistory in a collaborative and inclusive way.
