Llandudno is set to host the UK’s only lesbian festival later this year.

The L Festival is entering its sixth year in the UK and has been so successful has expanded to include three international events.

It has won national and international awards for best lesbian event and best festival, while festival director, Cindy Edwards, has been nominated in the national diversity awards and won Barclay’s Innovator of the Year for L Fest in the G3 Awards.

Until now the event has been held in the midlands but for the first time is moving to Llandudno with the festival to run from July 13 to 16 at Bodaforn Farm.

Edwards said the move was to try and incorporate more of a ‘festival and field’ kind of vibe and believed Bodaforn Farm provided the perfect backdrop.

The festival will play host to a range of music, arts and comedy acts across the weekend and has proved so popular the event has already sold out.

Edwards, on the L Festival website, said everyone is welcome to attend the event, as long as you support the message of the festival.

She said: “L Fest is the UK’s only lesbian music, arts and comedy festival. The festival is unique and extremely important to many.

“It is a place where women celebrate and come together, feel safe and included, to make new friends or just to feel comfortable walking around holding their partner’s hand in a very relaxed and friendly environment.

“L Fest welcomes everyone who supports what we stand for and wants to be part of this wonderful community. We welcome and encourage the whole LGBTQI community and our straight allies.

“Our crew is very diverse and you will find men on site - although they usually add up to less than 1 per cent of the festival goers.”

About 650 tickets went on sale for the event and within two months sold out.
