THE THIRTEENTH CAERLEON FESTIVAL!

As I write this, the moon is about to eclipse a bright spring sun, a much anticipated event soon to be over -  what then is there left to look forward to in 2015?  The answer is as clear as a day bathed in sunshine – our Thirteenth Festival!

There is much to anticipate.  Constraints of time and space do not permit full disclosure, but here is a taste of treats to come –

  • The Tempest performed by the Rain or Shine Theatre Company at the Wheatsheaf, Llanhennock on Sunday 31st May
  • Farmers Market at the Town Hall on Sunday 28th June.

 

Then the full summer festival takes off from the 3rd until the 13th of JULY with ten days of performance and participation - drama, literature, poetry, comedy, music, dance, art and so much more -

  • Carol Ann Duffy, the Poet Laureate, will be appearing at St. Cadocs’ Church with musician John Sampson – as will –
  • The Morriston Orpheus Choir with award winning soloist Joshua Owen Mills, and
  • Daniel Llewelyn-Williams performing his one man play ‘Between the Crosses’
  • Literature on the Priory Hotel Lawn will provide the opportunity to meet authors Including John Lewis-Stempel, John Gower, Tiffany Murray and Tom Anderseon and enjoy The All Wales Comic Verse Competition
  • Theatre in the Amphitheatre will feature The Festival Players performing Henry IV.
  • Bands both plugged and unplugged will perform in pubs
  • The climax will of course be THE BIG FREE weekend – at The Hanbury, The Bell and on the Festival Field with live music from over forty bands including Peel Your Own Spuds, dancing both planned and impromptu, Arts and Crafts and Exhibitors as well as other pleasant surprises.

 

As I conclude this piece I note there has been a total eclipse of the sun and a partial eclipse of the colander.  The sun is now shining unhindered by the moon and the FESTIVAL is all to come, “and I think to myself what a wonderful world”.

See you soon,

Tim Davidson - Chairman
