Open Doors at Criccieth Castle - 23 & 24.09.17

You are here: Home › Events › Event finder › Open Doors - Criccieth Castle Open Doors - Criccieth Castle Criccieth Castle Criccieth Castle It's a landmark site, a true testament to the varying fortunes of war. What a picture, what a view! Perched on a headland with the sea as its constant bedfellow. Its twin-towered gatehouse intimidates prospective attackers. So badly did the native Welsh princes and English monarchs want it, that it changed hands more often than a relay baton. Built originally by Llywelyn the Great, this very Welsh of princes included a very English style of gatehouse. Edward I’s forces took the castle some 50 years later, undertook their own improvements and remodelled a tower for stone-throwing engines. Not as much fun for those at the bottom as it sounds for those at the top! Tours at 11am, 1pm and 3pm. Although admission to this event is free, it is a ticketed event. Tickets available on the website from the beginning of September.

Trailffest Half Marathon - 23.09.17

The Trailffest half marathon is one of the most scenic you could hope to run, with dramatic changes of scenery and terrain the whole way to the finish line. With the start up in the mountains at 710 feet elevation and the finish down by the sea, it may sound easy - but don't be fooled! There are some very steep and challenging climbs along the way. The adventure starts in the rugged slate town of Blaenau Ffestiniog lying at the foot of the Moelwyn mountain range and finishes by the sea in the pretty harbour town of Porthmadog. The route takes you past the industrial slate quarries in Blaenau Ffestiniog then down through the beautiful vale of Ffestiniog. You will pass through open countryside into the wooded lower slopes then on into the forestry plantations. After a short (and by then welcome) section on a small tarmac road you end your race along the cob embankment with stunning views of the mountain range you have just come from on your right and the sea on your left.

There are many and varied ways to spend the night of Halloween, including schlepping small people round nearby streets asking for sweets from strangers. If you ask us (and we’ll try to be objective), it would be far better to follow a treat trail to our witch’s house in search of golden spiders and some superb surprises, followed by a twilight tour of Portmeirion village. Expect a wicked weekend. Please check details & times

Victorian Weekend, Porthmadog - 6 & 7.10.17

The Ffestiniog Railway is a living museum. We have been running passenger trains since Victorian times and many of those older vehicles have been lovingly preserved, so what better way to show them off than to have a weekend dedicated to that wonderful era£ But this event isn’t just about trains, or even just the railway. Porthmadog is a Victorian town with its port built to serve the slate industry, just like the Ffestiniog, so this event stretches out into the community with decorated shops, special events in the Maritime Museum, period fairground rides and stalls....and the costumes, great!

The Bear- Comedy Opera - 06.11.17

Experience opera like never before as MWO SmallStages presents its first ever micro-chamber performances with a brand new version of this hilarious one-act comedy classic. Composed in 1967 and based on Anton Chekhov’s play of the same name, The Bear tells the tale of the widow, Mme Popova, interrupted from her constant mourning by the arrival of the rough-hewn debt collector Smirnov (the “bear” of the title). Passions run high and their sparring culminates in a duel – and an unexpected romance. Full of entertainment, comedy, parody and great tunes, this intimate new production of The Bear, featuring just three singers and five musicians, is a brilliant introduction for audiences new to opera and a great opportunity for all music lovers to hear Walton’s classic comedy in its fiftieth anniversary year. Sung in English. After the interval join us for Tatyana’s Party Pieces, a light hearted take on the birthday party scene from Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin and a taster of MWO’s Spring 2018 Main Stage tour. These performances are part of Wales’ R17 commemorations for the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution and are performed by arrangement with Oxford University Press.
