Llandrindod Wells Victorian Festival PDF Print E-mail
The annual Llandrindod Wells Victorian festival is held in August, when locals and businesses step back into the time of Victorian splendour - from their top hats to their high laced boots. It’s a perfect time to taste the delicious traditional treats and foods on offer, to see wonderful period costumes and decorations and to hear the sounds from the bandstand and other live performances that transport you to a bygone era in; a real treat for the senses and also great fun for all ages!  Held in the last full week of August before the Bank Holiday, this popular Festival is going from strength to strength and has now become one of the premiere Victorian festivals in Britain today.

As Llandrindod was a thriving spa resort in the Victorian era it seemed natural for the town to base its festival on a Victorian theme. The unspoilt architecture provides a perfect backdrop to the celebrations, and the town’s Temple Gardens offer an ideal venue for the many different types of free street entertainment that is provided for festival visitors throughout the week.

The Festival aims to provide fun for the family and caters for all ages and tastes, whilst keeping to a Victorian theme. Attracting some 40,000 visitors to a town that has a population of only 5,000 is no mean feat, but the apparent ease with which it is done is largely due to the transformation achieved by the reversion to the Victorian era.  Horses and carriages, Victorian window displays, townspeople and some visitors sporting a whole range of appropriate costumes helps to create an atmosphere, the effect of which is nothing short of miraculous.  Why not come along and see for yourself and experience a unique day out for all the family!
