gruff gwydir

A small Welsh festival set in North Wales’ very own Llanwrst, hosting over twenty bands over three different stages, surrounded by the Gwydir Forest and giant trees.
It was a twee setting for Gwyl Gwydir to happen, complete with tipi tents, bunting and artwork.

Did this happen last year? I dunno… That’s been my bugbear with the Goll people – not enough advertising outside their Facebook friends. Thankfully this year, there’s been big pieces in the local rags and a bit of a feature on S4C (that’s Welsh TV to you kids). So you should expect a decent turnout.
I was there early, had a tight schedule and had to be at a Wobbly Hearts wedding in Llandudno by 7pm – traffic prevented me getting there anyway! Plus I knew headlining act Y Niwl were gonna be performing without Alun tonight and, as Ted Cloudsounds said, ‘It’s like seeing the Deltones without Dick Dale.’ Plus I’ve seen Y Niwl as many times as they have songs.
