Victorian Festival 2013, August 17th to 25th.
Step back in time to the 1800s
This year, our 32st Birthday the Llandrindod Wells Victorian Festival, promises to bring you an exciting selection of events that are sure to please the whole family. Whatever your age, you are bound to find something that will interest you, and bring a smile to your face, some might even find you breaking into fits of laughter. The surrounding backdrop of incredible Victorian architecture dating from the spa town's heyday, in the late 1800's, further enhances the festivities.
Take a trip down memory lane, and rekindle those feelings of nostalgia with our many entertainers. Street Entertainers will enthral you with their many skills. Watch the spectacle of the Victorian Costume Parades and best dressed competitions. Men, here's your chance to heckle the ladies as they surge on Middleton Street as Suffragettes on the last Sunday at 4.00 p.m.
Choose from a variety of talks on all subjects relating to the Victorian era. Exhibitions are of plenty, and local clubs and organisations have really pulled out the stops to produce interesting displays. Look out for our very own 'Queen Victoria'. Relax on Temple Gardens and enjoy the many Bandstand concerts, whilst partaking of the superb refreshments on offer from our Food Court.
Throughout the nine days of the Festival, there will be many competitions for you to participate in or spectate.
