CONWY Gwledd Feast, one of the biggest food festivals in Wales, promises a weekend of art, music and food on the town’s quayside

It will be held between Friday October 25 and Sunday 27. The feast has been organised by a not for profit community organisation, run by a dedicated team of local people, since 2004.

It will again feature the best produce from the area across a variety of stalls, real ales, craft displays, workshops, projections on the quayside.

The feast faces an uncertain future as a reduction in public funding makes it uneconomic. Jane Hughes who organisers the feast, said: “The future of the feast depends upon ticket sales, if they are good for this year’s festival we will keep going on, but if people don’t support it we wouldn’t be able to continue.”

Welsh is definitely the flavour of the weekend as the majority of the more than 150 artisan, street food stalls and producers will be coming from all over Wales.

But the festival isn’t just about food, other attractions include the Feast Quayside Bar which pops up to serve the best local brews, best quality wines and gin for the weekend. They will be complemented by displays and demonstrations of traditional building techniques, digital projections and a high-quality craft market, amongst many other things.

During the weekend the town is transformed, with venues dotted all over, Traditional crafts are a firm favourite at the Feast and the art of sheep shearing has always been a crowd puller. Children can be kept amused in the mini beasts marquee

Entry fees: for £28 (£25.20 on line) a family of two adults and three children can gain access everything in the core programme including the acoustic stage music marquee and the daytime music in the main stage music marquee. There is an option to buy music tickets for the music marquee.
