The 40th anniversary of the Victorian Festival in Llandrindod Wells was opened by Queen Victoria.
The Queen, alias Rita Clews, said everyone would make up for missing last year’s event as she declared the festivities open.
She said: “We are here in Llandrindod Wells to open this wonderful festival, may God let it go on for many, many years. We have all missed coming here but we will certainly make up for it this week."
The Llandrindod Wells Victorian Festival enjoyed its 40th anniversary missing out only in 2020 due to the pandemic.
We are taking this opportunity for a few months to let you enjoy the some photographs on the following pages, taken by our photographer Rob Reynolds.
Imagine yourself in these pictures enjoying yourself and taking in the atmosphere.
Planning has already started for 2022 and we are glad to announce that Alison Neil will be back performing her new one woman play 'Shining Bright' the story of Marie Curie.
Gerald Dickens, the great, great grandson of the great man himself will also be back in town.
The Festival will last for eight days, commencing with a getting to know you Soiree on the Monday night and climaxing with the torchlight procession and firework display on Sunday night.
But that is not all - following this years success we will be having a 'Community Day on the bank holiday Monday.
The Festival is not just for the end of August but throughout the year as we organise fund raising events and other entertainment.
As with all Festivals there is a cost and we are earnestly seeking grants, sponsorship and donations. If you want to have your company be part of this thrilling event then please contact us, information on how to do this is on our sponsorship page.
