Brecon Craft Fair
The Brecon Craft Fair takes place in the town’s historic market hall and is held every third Saturday of the month between 9am and 4.30pm. Each and every month, up to around 60 traditional and independent craft workers and artists set up shop in the market hall, resulting in a truly unique collection of Welsh arts and crafts; from beautiful handmade soft furnishings to hand painted jewellery and locally crafted Faberge style eggs.

Not only will you be able to pick up a handful of goodies, you’ll also be able to talk to artists and craft workers themselves and find out just how much effort went into creating each and every item. You will be pleasantly surprised not only by the quality of the crafts on offer, but also by the fact that you can pick things up for the fraction of the price you’d find elsewhere.

Llandeilo Festival of Music
Saturday 16th

Gabriel Faure’s much loved choral masterpiece will be the main work in what is guaranteed to be an evening of the highest choral excellence with one of Wales’s finest mixed choirs. The programme will also include works by Bruckner, Parry, Stanford, Brahms, Grieg, Lauridsen and Welsh composers Eric Jones and David Harries.

Sunday 17th
Closing Gala Evening- An evening of much loved music by Mozart, Puccini, Rachmaninoff and Verdi.

The Festival will draw to a close with another evening of vocal delight, when four singers from Denis O’ Neill’s Welsh International Academy of Voice take to the platform in a programme of popular arias and ensembles from their wide operatic repertoire. The expert guidance and intensive tuition provided by the renowned Welsh tenor’s Academy consistently attracts some of the world’s leading young opera stars and, alongside the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World competition, it has put Wales well and truly on the international map. The Festival is proud to be associated with the Academy for this final concert in this, its sixteenth season.
For both events:
Venue: St. Teilo’s Church.
Time: 7.30pm.
Admission: £15.00.

Monday sees the start of the Royal Welsh Show in mid Wales so make sure you go along for a great day out!  Find more events here
