I made it along to the Coracle Racing event during Gŵyl Cilgerran last year and what a lot of fun it was. All the announcements were bilingual and there was a lot of Welsh being spoken around me. If you’re down this way on holiday perhaps you could add it to your calendar.
The Cilgerran Festival will begin on August 13th with a Horticultural Show in the Village Hall.
The week is filled with events for both children and adults.
On Sunday at 11 am there will be Sports at the village MUGA and a concert in the village church at 6pm.
