Try aligning the whole thing to the centre rather than the left
Header: "South Wales Linux User Group" in larger, bold type;
"presents" without colon on the following line
Title: "an evening of" (lowercase) rather than "A Series of"; set in
smaller type, with "Lightning Talks" (title case or all caps) in bold
type on its own line

lines, perhaps putting the titles themselves in slightly larger or
bold type?
Where/When: Roll up into one block, e.g. "Wed 2 April 2008, Robert
Recorde Room, Second Floor, Faraday Tower", "7pm start" on its own
Contact details: Consider putting a name in there, e.g. "email Matthew
at mattrm..."

Maybe "For more information about the event, or if you would like to
