Gwrych Castle Medieval Festival 2019

Gwrych Castle Medieval Festival 2019

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!

On the 3rd and 4th of August Gwrych Castle will be hosting their ever popular Medieval Festival. This will be the third year we have attended and was one of the debut locations for the Wizard of Conwy.

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.

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!
