We had a great weekend at Gwrych Castle recently when we took part in their Medieval Festival.
Over 4,000 people visited the castle over the two day event. Jay entertained the crowds with magic all weekend, and even got to perform for the Mayor of Abergele.
We’ve been featured three times in this week’s Rhyl Journal, on three consecutive pages!
On page 31, there’s an article about the North Wales Magic Circle’s 75th anniversary, and the event that we’re holding in the Botanical Gardens in Rhyl to celebrate. There’s more information in our previous blog post.
On page 32 there’s a feature on the recent Medieval Festival in Gwrych Castle, near Abergele. We’ll be posting a blog soon with pictures from the event.
Finally, on page 33 there’s coverage of The Greatest Show on Turf, an event in Prestatyn that featured escapology, hula hooping, and circus skills. Again, look out for an upcoming post with photos. You can also read the full article on the Rhyl Journal website.
We’ll be at Grwrych Castle between 10 am and 5pm on the 19th and 20th of August for their Medieval Festival.
