This is a festival like no other, in the most stunning setting in the world: Portmeirion in North Wales. The picturesque Italianate village of Portmeirion is the home to the festival from 6th to 9th September 2018.
UK’s most unique experience. Multi award-winning music, arts and culture festival, located in our magical coastal home of Portmeirion near porthmadog in North Wales, with an eclectic mix of iconic and the best new artists.
The main stage is a Mediterranean-inspired, Grade II-listed fantasy village, surrounded by estuary, mountains and woodlands. During the festival, the village and surrounding woodlands come alive as a unique series of surreal and inspiring venues.
In the TV series The Prisoner, No.6 was always trying to escape ’The Village’. We think once you see Portmeirion you will never want to leave.

When it comes to tourist attractions, this part of North Wales is so compact. One minute you are in Beddgelert surrounded with misty coloured mountains, rivers and forests and next you are on a soft sandy beach at Morfa Bychan. Take the steam train at Porthmadog to Caernarfon and sit back and enjoy the awe-inspiring scenery. Caernarfon at night! Walking through the old street with the Castle lit as the backdrop: Beautiful. To my eyes, Snowdonia is as close to a perfect holiday destination as there can be. There is just one thing you need to know: Don’t go in August.
Inspired by the Kate Humble's 'Off the Beaten Track' program on the BBC, where she goes skinny dipping in Llyn Cwm Silyn, we decided to revisit this Llyn on the high plains above Talysarn in the shadow of the Nantlle Ridge.

You will be supporting the work of Prostate Cancer Research Centre (PCRC), a very worthy cause indeed.
Ifor Pritchard was an artist and art teacher at Ysgol Sir Huw Owen, in Caernarfon.
He grew up in the village of Carmel near the Nantlle Slate Quarries. Some of his early paintings have a very haunting feel. Always evocative, always beautiful. If you are interested, Google him to see more of his paintings.
Oh that does bring back happy memories...
