Bailey Hill Festival 2018 Mold line up

Summer specials, Mold’s festivals are underway

Singer songwriter, Laura Wilson, will be performing at the Bailey Hill Festival

It’s almost time for the Bailey Hill Festival 2018 when once again a cavalcade of talented singers, dancers and musicians will be making their way to Mold for a celebration of ‘slow’ at this friendly, family festival that showcases some of the best local performers in the area.

Mold’s Bailey Hill will come alive on Sunday 10 June from 1pm to 6pm with an eclectic line up of entertainment to suit all tastes.

Artists performing live on the Inner Bailey main stage include Baker’s Fabulous Boys, who wow audiences across the region with their songs from bluegrass to country and beyond; seasoned performer Mr Hugh who is a regular guest at the North Wales Blues and Soul Festival; rock from the Six Ton Dog Band; two accomplished, up and coming singer songwriters, Laura Wilson and Elina Haf; and firm favourites local bands Blues Face and Ricochet. During the afternoon there will be entertaining clog dancing by students who are performing later in the week at the World Finals 2018 of the Dance World Cup in Barcelona.

There’s a real outdoor adventure treat planned for Festival visitors to enjoy on the Outer Bailey, with North Wales Wildlife Trust teaming up with Wild Elements to deliver forest school activities, such as den building, marshmallow toasting and a barefoot challenge.

Magician, Jay Gatling, the Conwy Wizard

In the performance pagoda on the Outer Bailey settle down to be amazed by magician Ray Gatling, the Wizard; listen to some of the best of storytelling, with something for all ages to enjoy, and bring your toddler to explore bi-lingual toddler yoga.

Cittaslow Mold organises the Festival, which is on two sites across Bailey Hill, at the top of the High Street in Mold, and in the hall of Kings Christian Centre. There will be entertainment all afternoon on the Inner Bailey along with free activities to try out, such as circus skills, children’s creative workshops and guided heritage tours of the historic monument. Across the site there will be a variety of stalls.

Delicious home-made cakes, and refreshments will be on sale in Kings Christian Centre hall by the entrance to Bailey Hill. This year they are being made by the Flintshire Foodbank team with all proceeds used to support the Foodbank.

The annual Festival is the flagship attraction held on Bailey Hill as it attracts hundreds of people to Mold’s Scheduled Ancient Monument, which is the birthplace of the Town and was the scene of years of conflict from the 11th century. The event transforms Bailey Hill into the venue for a wonderful afternoon of great live music and activities for the whole family.

Tickets, at the gate on the day, are £4 for adults and free for children under 16 years of age. The closest car park is Griffiths Square off Clayton Road behind the top of the High Street and car parking on Sunday is free of charge.

Come along with your friends and family. Bring a picnic and your own seats or blankets to sit on, to relax and soak up the atmosphere.
