After three years among cowboys in Cornwall, Tapestry Goes West, is galloping off to pastures new - this time, medieval. This two-day festival is venturing across the Severn Estuary to a new site in South Wales, at the heart of the land of the dragon and the legend of King Arthur and Camelot.

Like last year’s cowboy-themed event, Tapestry 2006 promises to be pretty unique. As well as the eclectic mix of bands there will be a medieval village, mead a-plenty, and jousting from Thee Knights of Arkley.

Coaches have been organised from London. The new site, Margam Park, is a beautiful deer park near the golden sands of Porthcawl and the Mumbles peninsular. As with previous Tapestry festivals, coaches will also whisk London revellers to the seaside, and the second day will begin with a mass visit to the beach!

Among the bands already booked are Field Music, The Bishops, and The Eighteenth Day of May, with more yet to be confirmed. For the line-up so far, click here.

Also on the bill, are favourites from previous festivals and Euston’s monthly Tapestry Club gigs, including Circulus and Misty’s Big Adventure plus local bands such as Martini-Henry Rifles, The Hot Puppies and Welsh Magic. DJs include Unemployable Welsh Scum and Rob and Karen of Sin City Heavy Load fame.
