Really Wild Festival Announces Exciting New Partnership With CADW

23 Nov

I was delighted to receive this morning the exciting news that the Directors of Really Wild Festival have set up a partnership agreement with CADW, the Welsh Government’s Historic Environment Service. This will allow them to run next year’s Really Wild festival at the medieval Bishop’s Palace, next to St David’s Cathedral, Pembrokeshire.

What a stunning setting, right in the heart of St David’s and with a new date too, over the Whitsun Bank Holiday weekend, this really looks a terrific move for the hard working Really Wild team.

I do have to be open with you and confess my bias here as I have always enjoyed attending this event. The organisers have built up a strong and enthusiastic team of helpers and volunteers, focusing on their Really Wild theme. They have worked hard to build a successful event. Everyone is friendly and helpful and that makes a huge difference whether you are a producer, craft person, a visitor, a local or like me, press. Plus they keep me in the loop with what’s happening, without me having to chase them!!!!

I hope this new venue and the Bank Holiday date brings them even more success.

I’ll keep you updated on the latest news from Really Wild as we get it, which will be sent out directly to our Best Of Welsh & Borders producers as a matter of course.

Look forward to seeing you all there.

    this could be good news for St Davids and great for visitors.
    I hope that cadw will make if free entry and get behind this event to get as many people in as possible.
    I hope they don’t do as botanic gardens do with many of their food events, and force people to pay a lot before they can get in.
    This event is for the producers to show off and they need it to work well for them
    good luck that it is a winner
