IT will be festival time in the Vale of Clwyd this weekend.

Having recently celebrated it’s one-year anniversary, Y Tŷ Gwyrdd - the community hub and zero-waste shop on Denbigh's Back Row - is pleased to announce the launch of Gwyl Ty Gwyrdd on Saturday, June 18.

Activities will start from 9am at Eirianfa, with yoga, food, foraging, Welsh language and wellbeing workshops.

This will be in addition to Denbigh’s first ever People’s Assembly discussing 'How we can strengthen our local food networks’.

Denbigh Town Hall will offer a vibrant fusion of local artists, food and drink stalls, followed by an evening of live music and DJs at the Guildhall Tavern starting from 5pm.

Locals are invited to join a community celebration of local creators, makers, producers and innovators, sharing skills, knowledge and ideas, aiming to strengthen the community network, their connection with each other and with the environment.

There will be free parking all day in Denbigh town centre, as well as free childcare at Eirianfa between 9am and 4pm.

Y Ty Gwyrdd was created to offer an inclusive and welcoming space for the local community, to celebrate and promote the inspiring people and enterprises  in Denbigh and the surrounding area, and to help reduce the communities’ impact on the environment by offering affordable and accessible zero-waste options and opportunities to facilitate a circular economy.
