Excitement is building for what promises to be a fun-filled and action packed August bank holiday weekend – with over 70-trade stands of incredible Welsh food, arts, craft, children’s activities and live entertainment set to spill on to the front lawn and surrounding fields.

This year, the National Park Authority are keen to attract as many visitors as possible from across the area to enjoy the exciting programme of events, live music, activities and fun for the whole family.  Beacons Bus will be operating a special free bus service on Saturday from the new Brecon bus station to the National Park Visitor Centre, to run alongside their normal Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday service.

Adults can browse through an endless array of local food, arts and crafts, whilst the children will be kept entertained by a range of inspiring activities including willow sculpting, badge-making, face-painting, pottery turning, a bouncy castle, and guitar and folk dancing lessons. 

Mrs Mary Taylor, Chairman of Bannau Brycheiniog National Park Authority, is delighted with the growing success of the Summer Fayre, saying:  “We hope to see more than 10,000 people coming to the Fayre over the long weekend.  This is the perfect opportunity to learn more about your National Park and the local organisations and businesses that support our work.  What makes this year so special is that we have introduced many new activities that will ensure there’s plenty of entertainment for the whole family to enjoy.”

Andrew Powell, BBNPA Catering Manager and organiser of the event said, “The Summer Fayre is getting more and more popular every year and what could be better than celebrating a long weekend with a fantastic array of Welsh craft, produce and food.   Summer is the ideal time to soak in the magnificent views at the Bannau Brycheiniog National Park Visitor Centre, enjoy lunch in the tearooms and visit our information centre to find out more about the National Park.”
