Nearly there, despite a Tempest of a Hog Roast at the Wheatsheaf, which was enjoyed by all - and yet there is still much to anticipate.  Constraints of time and space do not permit full disclosure, but here is a taste of treats to come –

  • Farmers Market at the Town Hall on Sunday 28th June
  • 'W.H. Davies - A Man of Many Faces' a film by local historians Monty & Tom Dart at the Caerleon RFC Clubhouse (Bar Available) at 8pm, Wednesday 1st July
  • Pieces of Mind play at the Bell Inn at 8.30pm, Friday 3rd July

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.

So, we look forward to seeing you soon,

Tim Davidson - Chairman
