Vegan festival is first outdoor event of its kind for Pembrokeshire



THERE’S a new vegan festival on the summer horizon this year – and the first outdoor event of its kind to come to Pembrokeshire.

VegOut West, taking place on August 19-20, is a very affordable family camping event with weekend tickets for adults priced at just £40, £20 entry for 6–16-year-olds and no charge for under 6s.

The ticket price also includes yoga, workshops and a line-up of activities, putting it within the reach of those looking for cheaper options for the school holidays.

It also promises to be a smorgasbord of summer sounds, veritable vegan feasting as well as the chance to take part in crafts, pottery and even soothing therapies – to fully unwind and relax.

Comedian Joe Lycett stirred VegOut West’s organisers Carwyn Ratcliffe and Jo into action – they attended his recent tour where he left a lasting impression, and you could say something to pin their festival hopes on.

VegOut West will similarly raise money for good causes with all monies made going to Greenpeace as well as supporting the local area through ‘LARC’ Llanteg and Amroth Renaturing Community – providing and enhancing local green spaces.

On sale on Joe’s tour were badges featuring the inscription “sometimes if you want something to exist you have to make it yourself.” The badges, designed by Josie Long, have already made around £57,000 for the Arts Emergency charity which Josie co-founded.

The event, which it is hoped will become an annual fixture in the vegan festival calendar, is located on an idyllic six-acre site in Llanteg and has family fun and the chance to hang out with like-minded vegans at its heart. There’s a vast array of music to chill out to including rock, pop, drum and bass, house and hip hop provided by DJs. It’s just a short distance from Amroth Beach – and minibuses will be on hand for those wanting to take a refreshing plunge in the sea.

They’ll be colour in every corner – first up the food – with vegan pizza being produced specifically for the event as well as bountiful burgers from Vegan Filth and vegan ice-cream. There’ll be a licenced bar and soft drinks.

Pottery making and painting are also on offer and why not try ‘dotting’ – the art of painting dots and making them into a pattern. The practice of using all kinds of soothing sounds to help emotional wellbeing is also on offer.

There’s also yoga, a nerf gun battleground area and, to wind down, a selection of board games to enjoy.

Giant puppet of Dewi Sant to make a comeback at the Pilgrim Parade in St Davids



ST DAVIDS is all set to celebrate its annual Pilgrim Parade on May 29, with the return of the much-loved giant puppet of Dewi Sant. The event promises to be a spectacular one, with a medieval marketplace, traditional skills demos, guided walks, film screenings, and performances.

The parade is part of the Ancient Connections project, which celebrates the historical and future links between north Wexford and north Pembrokeshire. The project is coming to a close, and the parade will also mark the launch of the Wexford-Pembrokeshire Pilgrim Way.

Last year, the St David puppet stole the show at the parade, and this year, the 3m-tall puppet will make its way through the town alongside a new 6m-long sea monster. Created by Small Theatre, the giant puppet is sure to delight visitors of all ages.

According to Rowan Matthiessen, Ancient Connections Project Manager, “The Fayre is going to be an absolute feast for the senses and should be a fantastic bank-holiday day out for all the family. Small World Theatre never fails to disappoint in creating something fun and engaging for all.”

The medieval event will showcase some of the finest wares the area has to offer, including award-winning food and drink made from locally sourced ingredients. Visitors can also look forward to surprise pop-up performances by mischief makers, meandering minstrels, and holy relic sellers.

The parade will be led by colourful costumes created by pupils from Ysgol Penrhyn Dewi, and will culminate at the grounds of St Davids Cathedral. Along the way, Saint David will visit the giant bee skeps created by artist Bedwyr Williams.

Other highlights of the event include guided pilgrim walks, a massed choir performance in the Cathedral led by Span Arts’ choir Côr Pawb, a traditional skills demonstration marquee run by the Tywi Centre, and a programme of artists’ films and documentaries screened in the vaults of the Bishop’s Palace.

The day will end with an open-air concert of ancient music from Wales and the Celtic nations, performed by renowned folk musicians Julie Murphy, Ceri Rhys Matthews, and Jess Ward.

Ancient Connections is funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Ireland Wales co-operation programme and led by Pembrokeshire County Council, together with partners Wexford County Council, Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority, and Visit Wexford.
