September 17th 2016 saw a fantastic collaboration between welsh boutique trader, The Great Orme Brewery and national musical talent, which formed a successful one-day folk festival in Conwy, North Wales.
The festival ran from 9am until 2am the following day.
‘Gorjys Secrets’ was hosted ‘3RD SPACE’, a forged company with The Great Orme Brewery, at Caer Rhun Hall.
The festival itself was split onto two lawns, that boasted a ring of tents filled with local businesses such as Bodnant Welsh Food, Love Fair Accessories, Surf Snowdonia, Dr Zigs, The Coffee Bay and The Welsh Oven and many more.
There were two stages, the main stage which led to the beer and wine bars underneath a large oak trees, and a smaller stage for single acoustic acts on the first lawn which shared many stalls of local food and gifts.
Highlights from the day were performances by Gary Roberts, world champion beat boxer and multi-talented artist Belatrix, and acoustic hero Paul Green who excited listeners with original, soulful and upbeat tracks.
The evening performances saw the likes of Seth Lakeman, Marcus Bonfanti and legendary DJ Dave Pearce.
With festival goers partying long into the night and praising reviews, this brand new North Wales Festival was seen as a roaring success.
