ORGANISERS of a rally led by the leader of the UK Independence Party are looking for more spaces to accommodate supporters after tickets for the event sold out.
Nigel Farage is coming to Swansea on Wednesday, visiting the city centre before an evening rally at the Liberty Stadium. The event comes as political parties step up their electioneering ahead of next month's European elections.
A spokesman for Mr Farage's office said: "Demand has been so high. One person has said, 'I've heard him once, I want to hear him again'."
The visit to Swansea will be Mr Farage's first, and around 400 people are set to attend the public rally.
Ukip's candidate at next month's European elections, Nathan Gill, will also take questions from the audience. The day before his visit to Swansea Mr Farage will be in Bath, where tickets for his appearance have also sold out.
A spokesman said: "After Ukip obtained their first MEP in Wales, John Bufton, five years ago there has been a surge of support for the party with branches being formed throughout the region, and Mr Farage, who represents the South-East of England in Brussels, aims to build on the successes of the past few years. This will be an ideal opportunity for the people of South Wales to engage with one of the most charismatic political leaders of our time."
His visit comes as controversy surrounds a Ukip candidate who compared Islam to the Third Reich. Williams Henwood, who is standing in next month's local council elections in Enfield, north London, also tweeted that comedian Lenny Henry should emigrate to a "black country".
A party spokesman said: "Any breach of our rules will be duly investigated and action will be taken."
