Conwy Castle Summer Fundays 2019

Conwy Castle

Over the summer we have a very exciting event coming up. Starting on July 26th and continuing every Friday until the end of August; Gatling the Wizard, Erwyd the Conwy Jester and Professor Llusern the Storyteller will be taking residence in Conwy Castle for a grand selection of entertainment with Conwy Castle Summer Fundays 2019.

Erwyd will be performing his shows across the day, Professor Llusern will be engaging one and all with his wonderfully told stories and Gatling will be inviting you to learn some true wizard magic with his wizard workshops!

We’re seriously looking forward to performing in this wonderful location and sharing the wizard workshops with everyone who attends. 

In the workshop you’ll get to use your very own wizard’s wand and be taught three magic spells, then get the chance to see those spells come to life. Learn tricks from the Transformation, Production and Levitation schools of wizardry and start on the path of becoming a true wizard. It’s like Conwy Castle’s version of Hogwarts!

These are gonna be great days out over the summer and there’s six chances to come on down and take part. Come along and explore a fantastic medieval castle, watch a mind-blowing juggling show, let your imagination run wild with stories brought to life and experience what it’s like to be a wizard.

We look forward to greeting you over the summer at the beautiful Conwy Castle from the 26th of July and then every Friday until the end of August.

Mold Carnival 2019

Mold Carnival logo

You’ve gotta love the atmosphere at Mold Carnival 2019. Bright costumes parading through the town, people dancing through the street to all sorts of music floating on the air, with everything bringing people together in a feeling of happiness and joy.

We’ve attended Mold Carnival two years running and it is an event that always invokes a joyful emotion. As part of the parade at the start of the event, it’s wonderful to see so many people lining the streets to support it and the town. As you pass the crowds you see so many smiles and excited folk; ready for the day’s festivities.

In past years the carnival has taken over a large chunk of Mold, filling the high street with colourful and exciting fun fair rides and games, their main stage providing a great variety of local and celebrity entertainment. Whilst even more happens down on Kendricks Field, with the mascot race, lots of local and charity stalls and even more entertainment to keep you engaged and enjoying your day out in the sun.

This year’s event

In just a couple of weeks time they’re going to be doing it all again, as Mold Carnival 2019 returns on Sunday July 7th. The location has changed ever so slightly, now being entirely on Kendricks Field and The Rec, but the atmosphere will still be as awesome as ever, with plenty to see, do and engage with.

Of course Jay will be there too; with three shows over the course of the day, and mix and mingle close-up magic between times. This year he also plans to add a little juggling to his part in the parade, so keep an eye out for the juggling wizard. Now there’s a sentence you never thought you’d read today!

Jay’s shows will be at 11.45am and 2.30pm on the community stage on The Rec and at 1pm on the main stage on Kendricks Field itself.

Mold Carnival is always a pleasure to be a part of and entertain at, and we’re glad to have been invited back for another year of carnival fun. We hope to see you there. Be sure to come by, say hi, and share in some carnival magic at Mold Carnival 2019!

Gwrych Castle 200th Birthday: An epic celebration for 200 years!

Gwrych Castle 200th Anniversary open weekend 15-16th June 2019

North Wales has lots of beautiful venues and places to visit, but alas some have fallen by the wayside and been neglected. But some of these stories have happy futures, such as Gwrych Castle. Left to rot and ruin for many years, it was a fine turn of events when the Gwrych Castle Preservation Trust, headed by Mark Baker, stepped in to help restore this gorgeous site.

We’ve had the privilege to work at this wonderful venue a number of times in the past couple of years, with medieval and local community events, and this year we’re back there several times more, starting with a big old celebration. A double celebration to be accurate; on June 15th and 16th Gwrych Castle will be celebrating its 200th birthday and also the 1st anniversary of the Trust’s purchase of Gwrych.

It’s going to be a big party and you’re all invited to come along, the more the merrier as they say! It’s sure to be a fantastic day out for the whole family, with plenty to see and do. No party is complete without music and dance, and Gwrych have got you covered, with Mistrafunk performing live music in the old theatre, and Clerical Error morris dancers leading the way up the main driveway to their primary performance on the main terrace.

There’ll be face painting with Disney princesses, immersive historical guided tours of the site, magic shows and close-up miracles from Jay and much much more. And if you just want to put your feet up and enjoy this wonderful location you can do that too, with plenty of places to get some food and drink and set yourself up to soak in the atmosphere.

This is going to be a wonderful weekend and it would be awesome to see you there, so if you’re after something to do on the 15th and 16th of June come on down to Gwrych Castle 200th celebration and say hi!
