Event description

Description

WHAT? A poetry, music and art festival - co-hosted by Fair Acre Press with Mid Wales Arts

WHEN? 21 - 22 April 2018

WHERE? Mid Wales Arts, Maesmawr, Caersws, Newtown SY17 5SB It is, if coming from Newtown, on the right - directly off the A470 and just after you have crossed the railway line. Free plentiful parking.

WHY? Cathy Knapp set up Mid Wales Arts ten years ago. It is also the weekend of the death of John Ceiriog Hughes - whose desire for "simplicity of diction & emotional sincerity" has been the cornerstone for this festival's programming

WHAT? Workshops, Performances (both in English and Welsh), Open Mike, and on the 20th April a Children's workshop and performance at the local primary school

WHO? Keith Chandler, Diane Drummond, Menna Elfyn, Marlis Jones, Gill Lambert, Gregory Leadbetter, Robert Minhinnick, Delma Thomas, Andrew Warren, Casia William and You

HOW? We are so grateful to the Arts Council Wales whose support through public funding has made this festival possible, allowed us to keep the ticket prices low while paying the workshop leaders and performers a fair wage

NB - There are roadworks between Newtown and Caersws. Please allow time for these.

ACCESSIBLE? Mid Wales Arts has been inspected and deemed fully accessible. However they are currently converting a barn where all the readings and open mike will take place. If all goes well with the building work - this will be wheelchair-accessible and will have hearing loop system installed in time for this festival but please do check if either of these are essential for your enjoyment by contacting Nadia at fairacrepress@gmail.com Thanks

PARKING? There will be free plentiful parking - including some Disabled Parking spaces

TRAIN? There is a train station in Caersws

WHAT SHOULD YOU BRING? Appropriate clothing for whatever April sends our way. Maybe a cushion for the chairs which are firm. There will be homemade food, hot and cold drinks, cakes, and alcohol-in-the-evening for sale - but bring what else you want.
A notebook, your poems, and we will provide the inspiration!
