The Big-Hearted Festival
Summer is finally here and that means it’s time to savour a fine ale from the Great Orme Brewery as you listen to a fantastic line-up of Welsh, UK and international musicians. Nestled in the beautiful sea-side hills of north Wales is Ymuno, a music and arts festival that takes its name from the Welsh word meaning ‘join together’, and what’s not to like about a festival that effortlessly blends music with a heady mix of good food, craft ales, beautiful spirits from the artisan Snowdon Distillery, family friendly activities, oh and did we mention the complimentary breakfasts! Known by its loyal followers as the “small festival with a big heart” Ymuno offers festival goers a complete experience, where else can you build a mini oak timber frame building with the North Wales Natural Building Centre then funk it up to the sounds of the Renegade Brass Band, The Turbans and more, as the sun sets. An eclectic range of inspirational speakers will cover topics such as the early punk rock scene in Wales, Peruvian ceremonial chocolate making and permaculture gardening.
There is a packed activity program for children which is free to access, the return of the popular graffiti boards and a mini market featuring handcrafted wares from local craftspeople. Ymuno really does join together so many good things, it’s a shame it only happens once a year!
