Revamped LLAWN Festival brings celebration of creativity to Llandudno

The annual weekend-long LLAWN (meaning 'full' in Welsh) Festival pays its fourth visit to Llandudno this September, with a new creative team and free arts experiences for all. 

Spread across a variety of locations in the town from 23-25 September, the festival will explore the town’s history in a fun and creative and way. This year's theme is extra playful: Hide / Seek. Audiences from near and far can enjoy a busy and interactive mix of outdoor performances, street games, visual arts, dance, music, sound art, films and installations, all provided by arts organisations and artists across North Wales and beyond.

Their creative partners include the culture spaces MOSTYN and Venue Cymru, Migrations (who focus on international contemporary performance) and arts charity The Royal Cambrian Academy.
