Community celebrations

Cambria Band entertain the crowds at Bailey Hill Festival

Two glorious sunny days for the Bailey Hill Festival and the Carnival

June and July saw two wonderful community festivals in Mold. Record numbers of visitors came to the Bailey Hill Festival to enjoy an afternoon of live performances on the Inner Bailey. Children of all ages tried their hand with free circus skills from Ukanuni, and sat spell bound listening to the story tellers on the Gorsedd. For many people it was their first visit to Bailey Hill, and they were interested in plans to hold more events there.

The Carnival in July was a day to remember, the sun shone and over 4,000 people enjoyed live music in both Daniel Owen Square and the High Street, along with a host of activities and stalls on Mold Town Park. The ‘Brazilian’ theme of the parade brought out brightly coloured exotic costumes. Scores of volunteers and the support of local businesses enabled these excellent events to take place.
