Abergavenny Arts Festival @ Abergavenny Castle and surrounding venues | Wales | United Kingdom

Hold the date! The third annual Abergavenny Arts Festival will be filled with inspiring, inclusive and affordable events for the local community and visitors of all ages and backgrounds. We’re working on an exciting programme (available in mid/late May) of workshops, demonstrations and performances, centred on the beautiful castle grounds and surrounding streets and venues. We’re also bringing the Arts Market into the castle grounds.

Arts Abergavenny Community Interest Company is a not-for-profit organisation supported by volunteers and invests all of its fundraising proceeds into the Festival and other arts-related community activities and workshops throughout the year.

A new weekly Chatterbooks group for eight and nine-year-olds is starting in Abergavenny Library on Friday 8th March from 4pm to 5pm.  At Chatterbooks sessions children can meet new friends while discovering and sharing a passion for reading as they talk about books and take part in games, craft activities and competitions.  The sessions are free and all are welcome.

Chatterbooks is the UK’s largest network of children’s reading groups and has been created by national charity, The Reading Agency.

Councillor Paul Jordan, Monmouthshire’s cabinet member with responsibility for community hubs and libraries said: “Reading for pleasure is a very important factor in helping children achieve academic success and it opens their eyes to a whole wide world, not only in childhood but throughout life.”
