A thank-you from the Chairman

Sue Oates (festival chairman) extends a big Thank-you to everyone (dancers, musicians, performers) who took part in the 2017 festival.  She is unable to do this individually this year because of computer problems, which she hopes to resolve soon.


A big thank you to everyone who took the time to complete one of our questionnaires.

Thank you for your many positive comments, also the few complaints/suggestions....we have made a note of them and will action any that are in our power to do so.

To answer the main complaints....a warning about car parking charges will in future appear on the website. Unfortunately, charges are decided by the National Trust, and parking is not under the festival's control, although we will search for possible alternatives.

Craft stalls are booked by the National Trust, and they also only allow the festival two on-site food outlets, but we will review what food is supplied for 2018.

Please keep supporting and spreading the word about our wonderful festival.

THFF Committee


 Visit this grand and beautiful 17th-century mansion, whose rooms and walls reverberate with fascinating stories about the Morgan family, later Lords Tredegar.  One member of the Morgan family was Captain Henry Morgan, a Welsh privateer who preyed on the Spanish fleet and colonies. He was feted by King Charles II and then went on to become Governor in Jamaica. A well-known rum is named after him.

Honorary President: Mr Paul Flynn, MP
Honorary Vice-President: Mr Marcus Butler
