Gwledd Conwy Feast is an unmissable event for any festival goer.
A 13th century castle, historic quayside and river are the unrivalled stage and backdrop to two days and three nights of a heady mix of music, art and food.
Beginning on the Friday evening, October 25, and ending Sunday evening, October 27, this is the go-to highlight of the autumn calendar in Wales, and a weekend event not to be missed (for accommodation visit www.visitwales.co.uk).
The Feast coincides with the beginning of the Conwy’s mussel season and is the perfect time to try the tasty molluscs. Renowned for their distinctive flavour, the mussels are gathered just as they were 400 years ago: hand raked from small wooden boats in Conwy estuary,
Once again, the Feast will co-host blinc – Wales’ nationally acclaimed digital art festival, integrating modern technology with medieval structures.
Elsewhere, the much loved Trees, Bees & Farming marquee - with its farmyard of live animals – will partner the National Botanic Garden of Wales, offering you a wealth of knowledge on growing your own fruit and vegetables. Incredible Edible Conwy, where fruit, vegetables and edible flowers will be grown in public places around the town for anybody to harvest, will also be launched.
Other highlights include an extended quayside beer and music marquee, with a fabulous bill of live bands including John Power (The Las/Cast).
Welcoming back chefs, Bryn Williams, Brian Webb, Hywel Jones and introduce some new faces, including champion junior chef of Wales Chris Tull, and Aaron Craze a graduate from Jamie Oliver’s original Fifteen academy.
