Rob Hall headlines London Community Festival with Catfish and the Bottlemen

A former Rydal Penrhos pupil headlined as high profile festival with his chart topping band Catfish and the Bottlemen.

Rob Hall, who left the school in 2011, was part of the main attraction at the Community Festival in Finsbury Park, London.

The event, which took place earlier this month, also featured bands such as The Wombats, Slaves and Nothing But Thieves.

It has been another extremely busy summer for the drummer as part of the Llandudno four-piece, who are currently riding on the crest of a wave following the success of their second album The Ride.

Among their festival appearances include Isle of Wight, TRNSMT in Glasgow and the Fuji Rock Festival in Japan.

Director of Music Pete Williams, said: “Catfish and the Bottlemen have quickly established themselves as one of the best live acts in the country, which is a testament to their passion and dedication towards putting on the best show possible.

“It is great to see Rob flourishing as part of the group, and everyone at Rydal Penrhos is very proud of everything he continues to achieve.

“They are going to be around for a very long time thanks to the incredible following they have generated over the last 18 months, and hopefully this will bring with it even more accolades in the not-too-distant future.”
