  • June
    Hay-on-Wye knows how to throw a good party and its one-day Food Festival, held on a Saturday a few weeks after the end of the main Hay Festival, is certainly lots of fun. It’s limited to just 40 local producers to ensure the quality is the best, and there’s entertainment from local brass bands, male voice choirs and folk musicians.

  • Mid-Wales Beer Festival

    Mid Wales Beer Festival in Llanwrtyd Wells, Mid Wales

    This is one of the many festivals held in the tiny town of Llanwrtyd Wells each year. It lasts a whole ten days at the end of November, giving you plenty of time to sample a good number of the many real ales on offer at the town’s friendly pubs. The hub of the action is the Neuadd Arms Hotel, home of the award-winning Heart of Wales Brewery.

  • Royal Welsh Winter Fair
