The launch of the Fishguard Festival of Music took place at the Senedd today (7th June 2023) and was sponsored by Preseli Pembrokeshire Senedd Member Paul Davies. Mr Davies welcomed guests to the Senedd’s Pierhead building, where they were entertained by harpist Amanda Whiting and treated to a performance by Roger Cutts on trombone and Marlowe Fitzpatrick on the piano.
The Fishguard Festival of Music takes place from August 18th until September 3rd, with a launch concert by the National Youth Orchestra of Wales at St David’s Cathedral on Friday, August 4, with conductor Carlo Rizzi.
Mr Davies said, “It was a privilege to sponsor the launch of the Fishguard Festival of Music at the Senedd. The festival has been taking place for over fifty years and it’s great to see it continue to go from strength to strength.”
“It’s a festival that really puts Fishguard and west Wales on the map and I pay tribute to the volunteers who work hard to organise the festival and ensure it runs smoothly.”
“The year has another fantastic line up and so I’d encourage everyone to have a look at the programme on the Festival’s website and be sure to book tickets before they sell out.”
