As part our part in the celebration of the 40th Anniversary of the Fishguard International Music Festival we have held three concerts in the Ballroom in Tregwynt Mansion for the Festival.

The Harp and Violin concert given by Verity and Giles Thirkettle, on Sunday, was greeted with rapturous applause. The audience and the performers thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon in the beautiful setting surrounded by our Summer Exhibition of work

 

This Wednesday at 5pm we had the fabulous St Davids String Quartet supported by the NightOut Scheme as was the concert given on Thursday at 3pm by the wonderful cellist, Richard Jenkinson, who played for us last year too. Details below on the Artsfest Calendar. For 3 short films from the performances go to.......
