If you have been with us before you will know that the Festival takes place over a lazy music filled weekend on the Powis Castle Showground which is a truly stunning location enjoying spectacular views across the Severn Valley. It is within walking distance of Welshpool, a charming and traditional old market town which is known as The Gateway To Wales We are privileged that the Earl of Powis allows us to use this facility.
The festival is going from strength to strength. So many of you return year after year to enjoy the Show. Have a look at the Facebook page to catch up on the postings about past events and future developments. Here you will find what people think about the event. Please like us on Facebook and join our group here .
The show starts on Friday evening in the Beer Tent and continues through to Sunday evening. Do have a look at our line up where you will see details of the acts we have booked. We have included links to the artistes web pages so you can find out more about them.
