Over three weeks in May 2022, students at Henry Tudor School in Pembroke had a rare and unique opportunity to collaborate with professional songwriter Alex Stacey to write a new, bespoke song, which reflected the students’ attitudes on the importance of protecting the future health of our planet.
Port of Milford Haven staff, along with other project partners Celtic Sea Power, Marine Energy Wales and Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult, visited the school to speak to the young people about the Pembroke Dock Marine project, introduce them to their work, and present their future plans centred around sustainable energy for the area. Choir Leaders from The Aloud Charity then worked with GCSE Music students to compose original lyrics and melody, taking inspiration from the talks.
The pupils’ musical creations were recorded to create a final masterpiece to raise awareness for the redevelopment project more widely. Local members of the Pembroke Dock community also featured in the song and final music video.
As well as raising awareness for the Port’s future development plans, this project celebrated Aloud’s expansion to West Wales. Craig Yates, The Aloud Charity’s Creative Director commented:
Hollie Phillips, Community Engagement Assistant at the Port of Milford Haven, said,
We would like to thank Arts & Business Cymru’s CultureStep programme for supporting this exciting partnership.
