Fishguard

Over the past 13 years the seaport town of Fishguard has been host to one of the UK's best small traditional music festivals. With concerts, dance displays, workshops, meet-the-artist events, busking, informal music and song sessions, the town will be filled with colourful displays of dancing, along with tunes, airs, jigs and reels. Also featured is the famous, popular guided 'Pirates and Smugglers' walk. The festival is FREE, and embraces the talents of old and young alike and actively encourages visitors to join in the sessions with the 'stars' of the show.

Other events

Other events are expected to include a family twmpath, free instrument and voice workshops, meet the artist events, busks, informal music and song sessions and a real ale bar. Everyone is a part of the entertainment - not just a spectator. There are lots of opportunity to 'do your own thing'.

More information will be here when available.
