A few weeks ago I went to Wales for the Blog On Cymru event (you can read about it here) at the Sherman Theatre in Cardiff and, as I normally do, I combined a visit to Wales with seeing a number of friends. I met up with Becca in Brecon then stayed with Harry and Iona Legge-Bourke who own and run Glanusk Estate where I heard all about the forthcoming events which I am looking forward to attending.
The Wedding Fayre is taking place this Sunday (Sunday 29 March) and promises to be an exciting event with lots of inspiring exhibitors and ideas. Iona has been working hard on restoring the Glass House within the Walled Garden which is not only ideal for weddings but also parties of any kind, I hear wedding I think party – any excuse for a party!
There will be hats, wedding gowns, catering, photographers, stationers, The Showman’s Wagon from Village Designs, a violin and harp duet and so much more, including the church in gorgeous grounds with lots of hidden doors.
On Sunday 28 April Harry and Iona will be throwing the gardens open for the NGS Open Garden and Estate Fayre
and again there will be lots to see and do as well as a great selection of exhibitors. I’m looking forward to seeing Ffolky Felt and Emma from Book-ish again and meeting Tickled Pink Crafts who has made a variety of gifts for me over the years and Mary Rose Young whose style I have admired since visiting her old shop in Walcott Street in Bath.
In May riders can enjoy the Glanusk Park Fun Ride. You will be able to buy tickets in advance via the online booking system at a reduced rate and this will be available early April – Adults £17, 12 and under £12. Tickets on the day are Adults £20, 12 and under £15.
The fabulous characters from David Walliams’ Mr Stink are coming to Glanusk on Saturday 4 July! Heartbreak Productions will be performing their adaptation of ‘Mr Stink’ for the outdoor stage on the lawn in front of Penmyarth House on Saturday 4th July 2015. There will also be family camping at Penmyarth Park.
There are also a number of lettings opportunities available, who would’t want to live or work in such a beautiful and tranquil spot?
