The festival will include the Lady Windsor Races; a writer in residence, who will work with various local groups over a period of weeks, to produce works which may be performed on the main stage and establish a permanent creative writing group; a bogie race (go-carts, human powered); a tug of war; Carry a Partner Race; a fun fair; a pony club display; Army, Fire Service and Police vehicles and personnel; a farm animal educational event; a main stage for the music (local bands, brass band, choir) and spoken word performances; a mountain bike challenge; opportunities for local arts or crafts producers to exhibit and more minor events, including various catering outlets.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
The overall need which will be satisfied by the project is community regeneration. The outcomes we benefited from last year were a greater social cohesion in the village. A running group was formed as a direct result of that event. Also, a local branch of C.I.S.W.O. was established in the village.
We are expecting to raise funds for, and awareness of, the needs of several groups within the village, spread across all ages and abilities.
It is our ambition to establish the festival as an annual event. this will raise the profile of our village and create temporary, and hopefully, some permanent job opportunities. We would anticipate that it would become a source of local economic regeneration.
Steps to get it done:
This is an ambitious project to promote community regeneration with lasting positive outcomes for our village by establishing Gŵyl Ynysybwl Festival as an annual event.
