Summer specials

Take it ‘slow’ for the summer and enjoy the festivals and events being held here in Mold.

Mold is a member of a growing network of 147 towns in 24 countries, which are part of the international Cittaslow movement of ‘slow’ towns. We work to improve the quality of life for our residents through a number of community initiatives that include environmental protection, promoting local produce, and holding events to showcase talented local performers.

There are lots of reasons to come to Mold this summer and something for everyone to enjoy. The street market, which is said to be the best in North Wales, is held every Wednesday and Saturday, and if you want great local produce pay a visit to Celyn Farmers’ Market on the first and third Saturdays of the month. Mold also has a good range of independent shops as well as places to eat, to suit all tastes. Mold is known as a friendly town and locals think that’s important, which is why ‘friendly’ is mentioned so often in community feed-back.

Bailey Hill Festival Sunday 23 June

Spend a sunny ‘slow’ afternoon enjoying Bailey Hill, the site of Mold’s historic motte and baileys, at the annual Bailey Hill Festival on Sunday 23 June, from 1 to 6pm.
