Seiswn Fawr. Anyone else thinking of going?


I’m going!


I bumped into one of the organisers more than once last week. He’s optimistic that it will sell out quite soon (especially since Anweledig’s other performance at Car Gwyllt has sold out), so I would buy a ticket if you really want to go. I don’t think I can afford many festivals this year. I’ll probably be at Tafwyl because it’s free, but that’s about it. :frowning:
By the way, if you’re thinking about camping for Sesiwn Fawr, be aware that the campsite is a fair walk from the town, although the festival does run a shuttle bus at the end of the night.


Ŵŵŵ! Drymbago!


Is the campsite the place to be, or are there other options?


It’s just a field attached to the Torrent Walk camping/caravan site up towards Brithdir .

Tan-y-Fron would be closer if you want to walk to and from the town centre.
