Town in North Wales set to play host to Game of Thrones-esque weekend festival

If you are thinking about a holiday home for sale in Towyn then you’ll surely be excited to know that you won’t be far from Conwy, which is playing host to a ‘Game of Thrones’ style medieval themed festival next month!Event organisers have gone with an aptly-named title for the event, that fits well with the festival’s Medieval theme. ‘The Tournament’ as it will be known, will provide visitors with a whole host of things to see and do, including jousting displays, jesters, an archery tournament, and of course a huge feast of a banquet! You’ll also be treated to the Medieval wool market wares, which will be located in the town, something that hasn’t been seen for hundreds of years, making it a particularly nostalgic feature of the festival. No expense will be spared when it comes to the organisation of the event, with a budget of £60,000 in the kitty, which is set to run over the weekend of June 24th & 25th 2017. Early estimations around the festival have seen organisers anticipating around 20,000 people arriving to enjoy the Medieval town during the festival. The event’s organisation is in good hands, with Conwy’s chamber of trade, as well as financial support from Visit Wales, Conwy Town Council and Conwy County Council all backing the event, in what’s sure to be a huge hit! Image: Rob Obsidian under Creative Commons.
