The North Wales Bluegrass Festival - Conwy

Great Festival Friends; The People, Personalities & Performers for 28 years

Dear Friends
After a lot of discussion we have again taken the decision not to proceed with the North Wales Bluegrass Festival in 2018, despite ongoing rumours to the contrary.

When the Civic Hall closed in 2014, we had large cost increases, which included hiring a large marquee, and siting it on the tennis court. At a meeting in 2016 the Conwy County Borough Council told us that their usual support would no longer be available for the Festival.

We would like to thank all our loyal friends who have supported us throughout the past 28 years, and we are constantly reviewing the options to organise a North Wales Bluegrass Festival in the future.

In the meantime, our esteemed friend, John Blissitt, is organising a Bluegrass picking weekend with 3 Bands, Open Mike, Scratch Bands, Workshops, Young musicians spots, Gospel session, Kids disco, Camping on site in Llandudno, 19th-22nd July 2018.

Check out for details of campsite and tickets.

Hope to see you there - Gill, John Les and the Festival Team
