Newtown Food Festival : Sept 2018

The Comite de jumelage du Pays des Herbiers are already planning a return to our September 2018 Food Festival with a greater variety and quantity of produce, along with many other new ideas to enrich our festival.

Charity Music Evening

Newtown Twinning are supporting the Newtown Food Festival 2018 by organising a Charity Music Evening.  This is a fringe event for the Newtown Food Festival 2018.

Tickets at the Door. 7.30pm. Elephant and Castle. Thursday 30th August 2018.

Money raised at this event will help us to support Montgomeryshire Youth Music, Maldwyn Strings, Ffonic and other musical organisations visiting Les Herbiers for a return music exchange with Ecole de Musique Les Herbiers.

It will also help us to support the Newtown Food Festival.
