saw us celebrating 35 consecutive years of festivals. It all started back in 1983 when Monmouth took part in the Wales Tourist Board's "Festival of Castles".
The exhibition featured a timeline of Festival events against significant Monmouth town and national events. The committee asked the people of Monmouth to share their stories, photos and memorabilia and these were also exhibited.
To commemorate and celebrate 35 years of festivals Monmouth Festival received a grant for the Big Lottery Wales to organise a concert and exhibition.
The concert was held in May and featured local Monmouth bands and performers. Volunteers past and present were invited to attend.
