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.

The Original Conwy Pirate Festival 2019: 2 days of swashbuckling fun!

Conwy Pirate Weekend 2019 flyer

Ahoy there mateys! Avast and pay heed…savvy? Right, that’s plenty of pirate talk landlubbers… okay that was the last one. What can we say? We’re excited to be a part of the awesome Original Conwy Pirate Festival 2019. You can’t beat dressing up as a pirate and drinking plenty of tea… that’s what pirates drink, right?

On the 1st and 2nd of June Conwy will once more play host to an invasion of pirates, buccaneers and swashbucklers as the Navy try to defend the quay from them; to no avail of course.

There will be much to see and do for big and small pirates alike, including event favourites such as the fancy dress competition, and the barrel and keg races. There will be loads of pirate games for all to enjoy and much, much more, all within the amazing setting that is Conwy town.

When pirates clash…

Jay will be there helping to compere the event alongside performing his pirate magic, as well as being joined by his shipmate Erwyd, so this can only mean one thing…FIGHT!

Pirates being pirates there’s bound to be some sort of disagreement, like who gets the last pie, so the inevitable will undoubtedly occur. Erwyd and Gatling will be taking to the quay with their hugely enjoyable and much requested sword duel; be sure to be there and cheer for your favourite pirate and boo for the other; it’s amazing fun for all the family so don’t miss out. You never know, there may even be some other magical/juggling surprises!

As a first for The Original Conwy Pirate Festival this year, Erwyd and Gatling will be leading the charge as part of an audacious invasion of the most fortified part of Conwy Town: a fine prize for any pirate, and one that is considered an un-winnable reward. But you can be sure this dastardly crew don’t know the meaning of the word (seriously, most of them can’t read). That’s right, if you haven’t guessed by now, the Conwy pirates will be leading an attack on Conwy Castle itself.

If so put on your tricorn hat, strap your cutlass to your side and perfect your best sneer and we’ll see you at the most diabolical event in North Wales. The Original Conwy Pirate Festival 2019.

Gwrych Castle Medieval Festival 2018

We’re looking forward to returning to Gwrych Castle on the 18th of August to take part in their Medieval Festival.

Gwrych Castle Preservation Trust have spent the past 21 years working to restore this unique building and grounds, and earlier this year they announced that they had finally been able to buy the castle, and safeguard it for the future. http://gwrychtrust.co.uk/index.php/2018/06/08/saved-for-the-nation-a-fairytale-welsh-castle-once-destined-for-royalty/

The events held at the castle are a great opportunity to look around, and the money raised will help to keep the castle open for future generation to enjoy.

There will be lots to see and do, check out the event page on Facebook for full details.
