Over the last 30 years we have taken pride in making the festival as accessible for families of older and younger people.
Some of the family friendly highlights include the opening ceremony, and the end ceremony – which includes a parade of colour, music and dance at the end of the festival.
We try to programme artists who are suitable for young people, arts and crafts as well as something for parents too.
As well as the programme on the festival site there are loads of local surroundings to explore if you wanted to take some time out from the festival, including Newton House, the woods with fairy houses and Cadw’s Dinefwr Castle. A 10 minute walk from Dinefwr is the town of Llandeilo, an idyllic little town which has lots of cafes, a few family friendly pubs and an ice cream/cake shop featured on Channel 4. Less than 20 minutes drive from Dinefwr are a variety of tourism hot spots. See our Why Dinefwr? page for ideas of some of the local attractions.
We also have in place a Young People’s Safeguarding Policy. For further information please read.
