MusicFest Aberystwyth

The spectacular coastline of Cardigan Bay in West Wales is a fine backdrop for this inspirational week. Aberystwyth Arts Centre’s MusicFest is an enticing fusion of Music Festival and Summer School; of experience and learning; of performance and appreciation. The engagement of audience, student, and artist alike creates the unique community atmosphere of MusicFest – ‘refreshing, rewarding and thoroughly inspirational’.

Micro Macro Aberteifi – Timelapse

In Association with GROW WILD and 4CG (Cymdeithas Cynnal a Cefnogi Cefn Gwlad) we have secured national Lottery funding for our Blooming Wild project!
SOWING WILD FLOWERS in locations around the town and
hitting the town with KNITTED WILD FLOWERS and BEES.

WHAT WE’RE DOING We’re sowing and sewing wildflowers – weekly knitting and growing workshops will create a wonderful townscape for locals, visitors and bees to enjoy.

Pendre Cafe and Gallery is currently hosting the Giant knitted Aberteifi Cardigan and we will be holding creative studios there in the back of the gallery space. Visiting speakers will come and share their knowledge with us and we will hold special whole day sessions.

OUR CHALLENGE is to help young people see that by working together
in the community they can have a direct and positive impact on their environment which is of benefit to themselves and others…
and that they can have fun doing it.

HOW TO GET INVOLVED check in to this page for updates, look in the Tivyside newspaper for weekly workshops, events and parties!

WHO WILL BENEFIT Our various sites around the town will create a feast for the eyes (and for the bees) which will inspire and create a love of wild flowers for all passersby. A great sense of achievement for all participants.

This is an intergenerational project we need you young’uns to give us your energy and ideas, and get your technology out, rummage for your knitting needles, (don’t worry we’ve got lots) and get your wellies on. Knitting, sewing, drawing, photographing, filming…
