North Cardiff will be the place to be this summer as a string of local festivals brings music and laughter to the area.
This year’s Whitchurch and Tongwynlais Festival gets underway in the shadow of the iconic Castell Coch on 20th June with the Sunset Fayre.
Organisers have been keen to build on last year’s success and the 2018 programme is bursting with events for all the family.
The 10 day celebration culminates in the Festival Fête that takes place on Whitchurch Common on Saturday 30th June. Festival organiser Linda Morgan told Whitchurch and Llandaff Living:
“The Festival is put on each year by the committee and a small group of volunteers, to bring an enjoyable start to the summer and to celebrate the great communities of Whitchurch and Tongwynlais.
Please come along and enjoy the events, get involved and tell others what is going on.”
This year’s programme includes picnics, duck races, charity auctions, quizzes, concerts, treasure hunts, and lots more. You can find out more here.
Meanwhile, the unique Vintage For Victory takes place in Whitchurch Library Gardens the weekend of July 14th and 15th, celebrating vintage nostalgia, fashion and music from the 1940s, 50s and 60s.
Visitors can take a step back in time and a trip down memory lane in aid of Cancer Research Wales. Dressing up will be part of the experience while the selection of vintage-inspired bands and acts playing over the weekend are there to keep toes-a-tapping and hips swaying.
Classic cars and bikes, and military vehicles of yesteryear will join the mighty Spitfire and Hurricane replicas alongside a Vintage Carnival of traditional sideshow acts. There will also be a good selection of clothes stalls, food and drink outlets, and even a planned flyby of a military Dakota on the Sunday.
2018 will also see the introduction of camping facilities, which will be located less than one mile away. An exclusive after party will be held at the camp site, where there will be live music and running water, toilets and showers.
