Can you believe it?

Who'd have thought back in 1983, when Monmouth took part in the ‘Festival of Castles’, that the Festival would still be going strong in 2017.

With only 5 months to go until the 35th Monmouth Festival let the countdown begin!

From 28th July to 5th August there will be nine nights of music in the Main Stage Area (Blestium Street car park), 5 nights of music at the Three Horseshoes, a classical programme at St Mary's Church and Fringe events throughout the town.

The Busking Festival returns on Saturday, 29th July. Buskers will perform throughout the town with the open mic stage located in Agincourt Square.

Sunday, 30th July, is Funday with plenty of activities and entertainment for the whole family in the Main Stage Area.

We will be celebrating both the 35 years and the wonderful volunteers whose commitment over the years has seen the festival grow into the event it is today. Details will be posted over the coming days on Social Media, here on our website and in the press.
