Details of Inspired in Caersws Festival!! APRIL 21 – 22


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?          David Calcutt, 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
