Bernadette said: "This is a sold-out ticketed event, so you must have a ticket to enter. Additionally, to make attending the event hassle-free, a free bus loop will be in operation, collecting and dropping off attendees at convenient locations such as Erw Goch and Glasdir estates.


"This eliminates the need for driving into town and paying parking fees and thus also ensures a smooth and enjoyable experience for all.

"With its recognition as a finalist for the 2023 Go North Wales Go Best Event of the Year Award, this event is sure to exceed expectations."
