Posted:There is usually a food stall at the festival, but if you want to cook for yourself to keep costs down that's doable too. There are shops in North Wales you know smile You can shop once you get there. tongue

Posted:Llanfyllin town centre is about a mile from the festival site, so easy walking distance. It has several shops, a bank, a chippy and at least 2 pubs. So pretty much everything you need.



Hope this helps.

Posted:Is there a bar or not!!???!?!??!??!

well... truth be told, we will be bringing a bar... beerchug actually its been in the planning since last year and its grown... a lot....

The "spinning at" play bar construction project has started and materials are being sourced..... ubbloco the marquee is 72 sqm.. up 42 sqm from last year. it is its got lighting and a hard floor and cusions and tables, a blackjack table and a vip area.... and we will be running bar flare, cocktail, chip manipulation and baloon modeling workshops and a snack and coffee stall and cocktails and beer and cider and wine and etc... The drinks will be as cheap as we can do them for as the bar is not for profit..peace . but for fun..

so when your at play... come and say.. hiiiiiiiii wavehello

Posted:I'm looking forward to Play.So much so that I might even remember to buy a ticket! And the weather is looking OK too!

Meg, will the white t-shirt be auctioned off after the workshop? Once the paths of contact have be drawn sticks will be magically attracted!

Which makes a walk in the woods rather dangerous...
