Welcome to our new Festival website!

This is a work in progress – it will take time, but it will be worthwhile.

Our intention is to improve your access to information on Festival events and keep you in touch with what is happening and how to book tickets. Also, you can share your views with us so we are in touch.

Watch this space!

Now in its 14th year the Festival celebrates the arts, and entertains the community (and visitors from wherever) in the special place that is Caerleon. Drama, literature, poetry, comedy, music, dance, arts, crafts, sculpture and so much more in a special place steeped in history, mystery and legend – Roman fortress, medieval castle, King Arthur’s Camelot?
