A COLOURFUL mix of visual art, performance, dance and music came to Llandudno this weekend.

This year LLAWN - Llandudno Arts Weekend this weekend - introduced the first ever mural trail for North Wales, alongside artists and performers from Wales and beyond.

Artists' murals around the town got visitors talking. In churches and churchyards, in disused shops and buildings and along the prom there were pop-up events and performances that delighted both art lovers and day-trippers.

Megan Broadmeadow, Curator of LLAWN, said: "I was thrilled to be invited to curate this year's Llandudno Arts Weekend and didn't hesitate in accepting.

"I have a strong connection to the festival - having both performed and visited it over the years since it started in 2013. It was a real honour to be able to invite artists that I admire and to see how they respond to a place I know so well."

Alfredo Cramerotti, MOSTYN director, said: "It's really important to us here at MOSTYN Gallery that we bring art into the town as well as invite people into the gallery.

"We want people to experience the best in contemporary art whatever their background or experience or ideas about art. We hope the festival will become a permanent fixture in the cultural calendar for Wales."

The organisers wish to thank the festival funders which include the National Lottery through Arts Council of Wales, Mostyn Estates, Conwy County Borough Council, Arts & Business Cymru, Llandudno Town Council and Disability Arts Cymru.
