About the Festival
The recorded history of Talgarth reveals that since 1292, when Bishop of St David's granted the town market and Fair Rights, there have been annual gatherings in the town. The current Festival follows this tradition celebrating the 20th anniversary of it's latest reincarnation in August 2015.
