Faery magic comes to the pavilion this weekend

Llangollen Faery Festival flies into the town's Royal International Pavilion this weekend.
 
Organisers say it will be a fun packed two day event for youngsters and anyone who wants there to be a little more magic in this world.
 
Taking place on Saturday and Sunday, the festival will offer lots of fun things to see and do.

There are wing and wand making workshops, storytelling, talks and exhibitions for the grown ups and a Faery Market where craftspeople will be selling all sorts of magical fairy inspired gifts. 
 
From face painting to putting your wishes on The Wishing Line, there will be plenty of children's activities and - entry for under 12's is free.
 
There will be talks from people such as Mary Curtis, author of The Goldfish Who Jumped, and Dan Baines, creator of the cleverest fairy hoax since the Cottingley Fairies fooled Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.  
 
When Dan declared his fairy pictures a fake, 20,00 people emailed him claiming fairies are real and he was hiding the truth!  
 
Dan now makes props for film makers like Guillermo Del Torro and he will be telling his extraordinary story.
 
Fiona Maher, author of The Last Changeling, a fairy story for adults, will be reading from her book.
 
On Saturday evening there's a Grand Faery Ball where the grown ups can don their fairy finery and dance to three live acts -  Charlotte Oram, The Bear Beats Band and Drowsy Maggie.
  
Tickets are available at the gate and online via llangollenfaeryfesti.wix.com/llangollenfaeryfesti
