The Celts are Coming

Cwlwm CeltaiddIt's that time of year again when the seaside resort of Porthcawl reverberates to the sound of some great Celtic music.  It's time for the 10th Porthcawl Interceltic Festival.

Singers, dancers and musicians from Scotland, Ireland, Cornwall, Brittany, the Isle of Man and of course Wales descend on the town's Grand Pavilion for three days of concerts, performances and sessions. 

Although the pavilion is the base for the weekend's festivities, the whole town gets into the Celtic spirit with events happening throughout the resort.  The highlight being the Parade of the Celts - a colourful procession through the town's streets by the festival's participants, many in their National Dress.  The parade heralds the start of the proceedings which then continue all weekend.

The festival takes place from 4 -6 March.  Take a look at the festival's website for more information
