Yet again, we are providing the best children's entertainment from throughout Wales and beyond. Storytelling, circus skills, workshops and loads of fun


A superb eclectic mix of first class music,
guaranteed to make you get up and dance!

Wow! What a roaring success this stage was last year....filled with the random and the bizarre, it's got to be seen to be believed. By day this venue will host performances and workshops.

With improved facilities the Baa Stage plays host to the UK's hottest emerging talent
An eclectic selection of musical genres, an aural smörgåsbord of delight.


Taking another huge leap forward, this year’s courtyard will be hot on the heels of the other stages showcasing some of the best new acts in the country, with an improved venue and soundsystem design we’re ready to rock the house…Workhouse that is


 This year will see a new addition to the skyline.  DJ and MC workshops will be hosted during the day and, for those with a more contemporary taste, we will be showcasing
an elite selection of full on stomping electronica artistes and djs in the evenings

Traditional and World music dance tent where you can have a go at Breton, contemporary and Latin Dance. Bring an instrument and join in with the daily traditional music sessions or just relax with tea and cake

We bring a selection of the finest
artists to this new stage, promising a chilled out addition to this years festival
all held in Sunny Jim's solar powered dome

Will be provided subject to licensing.


A selection of the finest local
artisans and crafts people, displaying
their trades and techniques. From the
traditional to the bizarre…come and
be inspired.

This area adds a spiritual dimension where you can find peace, healing and inspiration. 2006 included: Acupressure, Body Massage, Emotional Freedom Technique, Herbalism, Indian Head Massage, Reflexology, Reiki, Seichem, Shiatsu and Spiritual Healing.

By day this dome will be used for the Kids Domain and Workshops, and by night will host the Acoustic Lounge 

Random, spontaneous and theatrically absurd acts on offer…remember that not all of them will have been booked by us! Look out for Man in a Box, Lazer man, Dr. Palfi, Earthlingz, Harry and Mavis, some giant puppets and some taller than tall people….enjoy
