The Caerleon Festival Continues

Welcome to the new Festival Year, and it’s time to give you a flavour of what’s to come.  

In June we have a production of ‘Treasure Island’ by the Rain or Shine Theatre Company at the Wheatsheaf, Llanhennock and we’ll be holding a ‘Best Dressed Pirate Competition’ with prizes. Later that month will be our Farmers Market in the Village offering Fun, Food and Frivolity.

During the Festival fortnight we’ll have literature on the lawn with ‘Meet the Authors’ at the Priory Hotel, laughter on the lawn with our Third All Wales Comic Verse Competition Finals, again at the Priory Hotel and the School Art & Music Awards at the Celtic Manor.

We'll be welcoming 'A Regular Little Houdini' to the Town Hall, a one man show written and performed by Daniel Llewelyn-Williams (following its sell out appearance at the Riverside).

The Morriston Orpheus Choir with guest vocalist, Iona Jones (soprano), will perform at St Cadoc’s Church as will famed poet Roger McGough CBE, promoting his new book of poetry ‘As Far as I Know’.

The Festival Players will perform ‘Macbeth’ at the Roman Amphitheatre and during the 12th and 13th July we shall be presenting the ‘The Big Free’ weekend of music, dance and performance on Hanbury Quayside and at the Bell, whilst on the Festival Field will be our Arts & Crafts Weekend.

We’re looking forward to welcoming you to all these events and will be adding more to the mix in the near future.

Don't forget to follow forthcoming events and newsletter pages (see menu bar above), and our Facebook page and Twitter feed.
