Now entering its 23rd year, the 2019 Llangollen Fringe Festival will be opening its doors from Friday 19th until Saturday 27th July. The festival has become one of the biggest events of its kind in North Wales, renowned for its eclectic and eccentric artistic performances.
With everything from Punk, reggae, rock, folk, flamenco, poetry, drama, art and film set to take centre stage at Llangollen’s Town Hall, festival goers will be spoilt for choice. Whilst the town hall’s 300 seat theatre will play host to Llangollen Fringe’s main events, those looking for a more unique festival experience can enjoy performances in the ancient ruins of Castell Dinas Bran or the magnificent setting of Vale Crucis Abbey. You can even hop on board a narrow boat or stream train for a truly one of a kind festival experience.
Highlights of this year’s Llangollen Fringe Festival include the Comedy Club Finale 2019 on Friday 19th, featuring acclaimed stand-up comic, actor and writer Dave Johns. For film enthusiasts, join documentary filmmaker Bruce Parry for a Q&A session after a showing of his directorial debut ‘Tawai, a voice from the forest’ on Sunday 21st. Fans of folktronica band ‘Tunng’ will not want to miss a special performance by the band on the 25th; they will be playing songs from their critically acclaimed 2018 album ‘Songs You Make at Night’, as well as other hits from their 16 year industry career.
