Your Festival visit

Gregynog Festival began in 1933 as a private house party and we continue this tradition with intimate, historic venues and a relaxed, friendly atmosphere, where local people mingle with vistiors from all parts of the world. 


Many audience members choose to attend Gregynog Festival as part of a short break in the beautiful Mid Wales countryside, allowing you to enjoy a number of events and explore the rich annual themes in greater depth. All our themes are taken from the history of Wales and the borders, explored by leading international artists through specially curated programmes, talks and exhibitions.


Our home is in Montgomeryshire in rural Powys, the historic border area of Wales with England but as well as Gregynog Hall, we visit other historic venues appropriate to our annual theme, including, in recent years, the National Trust's Chirk Castle, the National Library of Wales in Aberystwyth and the National Museum in Cardiff. Our itinerary for the 2017 Festival will be published early in 2017.


You can choose to stay at Gregynog Hall itself, which offers modernised en-suite accommodation in the Courtyard or traditional non en-suite accommodation in the main house, subject to availability.


You can also select from a range of hotels and guest houses in nearby Montgomery, Newtown, Welshpool and Caersws. The Checkers restaurant with rooms in Montgomery has held a Michelin star since 2011. A  list of local accommodation and restaurants is below.


There is plenty more to enjoy while staying in the area.  There are a number of National TrustCadw and English Heritage historic properties within a short distance.  Oriel Davies Gallery in Newtown is a significant contemporary art gallery with changing exhibitions, a shop and cafe.  Nearby you can ride the historic Welshpool and Llanfair Light Railway, one of the Great Little Trains of Wales, or tour Offa's Dyke, the Shropshire Hills and the Border villages. A little further afield are two of Wales' National Parks: Snowdonia to the north and Brecon Beacons to the south.
