Faenol Food & Craft Festival

05 Aug

It has officially been announced today that Bryn Terfel’s Faenol Festival has been cancelled due to poor ticket sales. This means that our Food & Craft event which was running alongside will now not take place. Without support from WAG Food for this event, the Welsh Country team have put in a tremendous effort to get the food and craft side up and running and we have been so encouraged by the response we have had. It has been phenomenal for both the food and the craft stands, from chefs wanting to cook in the demonstration kitchen, a new food company wanting to launch themselves there and such a wide variety of artists and craft people, it never fails to impress me with the wealth of talent Wales has on this side.

This is horrid news for all involved and another huge disappointment for the north Wales area. Bryn’s event has always brought massive visitor numbers and it is another blow that the tourism industry does not need. But despite all efforts by the organisational team the ticket sales just weren’t high enough to continue with confidence.

 Again our thanks to you all for your support, already we have had wonderful calls and emails appreciating our efforts and undestanding our disappointment that the event is not going ahead. Follows is just one from Great Orme Brewery: It is indeed sad, and I imagine for you personally very frustrating, however I hope that this year’s cancellation does not reduce the aim to hold the food festival at the event in future years.

Kind regards and thank you
