Bailey Hill Festival, Mold, Sunday 21 Jun 2015 from 1pm to 6pm

The Bailey Hill Festival returns to Mold on Sunday 21 June from 1pm to 6pm with a great line up of bands performing on the main stage, and a jam-packed afternoon of activities for people to enjoy.

This family friendly event goes from strength to strength and is regarded as one of the highlights of the festival calendar in Mold. Once again there will be the best of local music from the region, performed live on the Inner Bailey main stage, story tellers on the Gorsedd Circle, and living history on the Outer Bailey.

Cittaslow Mold organises the Festival, which is on three sites across Bailey Hill, at the top of the High Street in Mold, and in the hall of Kings Christian Centre. There will be entertainment all afternoon on the Inner Bailey along with free activities to try out, such as circus skills, children’s creative workshops and guided heritage tours of the historic monument. Across the site there will be a variety of stalls.

On the Outer Bailey Samhain Welsh Medieval Society will recreate early 14th century life and transport visitors back to this fascinating time, where they can interact with medieval folk as they go about their daily lives.

There will be refreshments on the Outer Bailey, various groups demonstrating crafts and other activities, along with the chance to find out more about wildlife in the area from the North Wales Wildlife Trust, and the RSPB.

Back by popular demand, Ruth Moore Williams will be enchanting children at the Gorsedd Circle with her story telling and music.

Buckley and Mold Lions will be tempting visitors with their delicious cakes and teas in Kings Christian Centre hall by the entrance to Bailey Hill.

The annual Festival is the flagship attraction held on Bailey Hill as it attracts hundreds of people to Mold’s Scheduled Ancient Monument, which is the birthplace of the Town and was the scene of years of conflict from the 11th century. The event transforms Bailey Hill into the venue for a wonderful afternoon of great live music and activities for the whole family.

Tickets, at the gate on the day, are £3 for adults and free for children under 16 years of age. The closest car park is Griffiths Square off Clayton Road behind the top of the High Street and car parking on Sunday is free of charge.

Come along with your friends and family. Bring a picnic and your own seats or blankets to sit on, to relax and soak up the atmosphere.
