2018 Festival


2018 – The 16th Festival Year!

 There is much in prospect this our 16th year – a taste of treats to come: 

 Summer celebrations extending from the 5th to the 15th July to include 

“The Winter’s Tale” in the Amphitheatre (contains Shakespeare’s most intriguing stage direction: “Exit, pursued by a bear”);

“Lit. on the Lawn”; Comic Verse; “the Morriston Orpheus Choir”;

Schools’ Art & Prose Exhibition; Music; Dance; and

“The Big Free” Weekend of entertainment, arts/crafts, sculpture, and performances too many to mention:


In November, a weekend Centenary Commemoration of Armistice Day 1918 when the Great War (“to end all wars”) ended on “the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month”.  How was it for the community of Caerleon?


Work to transform the Festival Field into a Wild Flower Meadow will of course continue.
