Wales Festivals 2014
Many Wales Cottage Holidays visitors are familiar with some of the big festivals that are held every year in Wales. You may be a regular visitor to the Llangollen International Eisteddfod in early July or the Royal Welsh Show in Mid Wales later in the month. But how about some of the lesser known and slightly different festivals happening in 2014?
Anglesey Drama Festival is a one act play festival founded in 2003 that takes place annually in Holyhead, bringing together competitors from Wales, England and Ireland; this year it’s 24-29 March.
The Dinefwr Literature Festival returns to the National Trust’s beautiful Dinefwr Park in Carmarthenshire from 20-22 June 2014 following its debut two years ago. There’ll be over 100 events featuring authors, poets, musicians, artists, actors and comedians.
Beyond the Border is a three-day festival of stories and music from Wales and across the world at St Donat's Castle in the Vale of Glamorgan, 4-6 July 2014. With nine different stages, there is something for everyone including Dylan Thomas at 100, storytellers and musicians from Sweden and Finland, Circus Theatre from Switzerland, Story without Speech, stories in Welsh, African music and story, Celtic myth, travellers’ tales, world music, food, crafts, workshops, family activities, street theatre and much more. And the 2014 Glass Butter Beach Festival is now confirmed for 15-16 August. This is a popular multi-action sport, music and beach culture festival taking place in Llanbedrog, near Abersoch on the Lleyn Peninsula. It’s a great location looking out across Cardigan Bay to the mountains of Snowdonia.
