The summer holidays are in full swing and now is the time to find things to go out and do, to enjoy the beautiful weather and escape the house for a while. It’s always wonderful to go and explore new locations, with lots of hidden secrets and North Wales is full of such places. And as the title of this blog might point out, we have one such place to suggest: Gwrych Castle Medieval Festival 2019!
It is a fabulous day out and one that helps support the renovation of this gorgeous location. There is always lots to see and do. Of course Jay will be there in full wizard garb entertaining one and all with some astounding close-up magic, up to three shows throughout the day and some occasional balloon modeling. When you see the green and blue robes about the castle be sure to come over and say hi, then share in some magic.
In addition there will be tours of the grounds to partake in, birds of prey to have a picture with, a hefty number of re-enactors… and where there’s re-enactors there’s sure to be a sword fight or two! And if the kids fancy a go there will be a children’s sword fight school to boot.
Gwrych Castle Medieval Festival 2019 is a superb day out for the whole family and a wonderful location to chill out in as well, so why not bring a lunch or grab some food and drink from one of the stalls and soak in the atmosphere.
We look forward to seeing you there and sharing some marvellous medieval magic with you.

Tickets are only £6.00 for adults, £3 for kids with under 3s getting in free, and a family ticket is only £15.00. And all funds go towards helping to continue the restoration of this astounding building – and with continued support the Castle will reach its former beauty once more.
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.

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!
