Preparations almost complete for Llan Fringe

Preparations are almost complete for this year’s Fringe festival.
There is a huge variety of events this year and it’s all about participation. 
Organisers have put together eleven nights of superb entertainment with the blend of music and spoken word.
Stand-up comedy is back; World music; Welsh contemporary music with Gulp; Nostalgia with The Blockheads; Evenings with Alexi Sayle and Andrew Motion; Chartered Jazz Train on the Llangollen Steam Railway; Magical finale at Valle Crucis Abbey; Friday and Saturday dancing with The Dub Pistols, Alejandro and the Tombolinos and Yaaba Funk; and tickets are selling fast.
This year’s printed programme is twice the size of last year’s.
Organisers say it reflects the increasing number of events and activities that are happening in Fringe week.
Workshop sessions are really taking off, withs something for (almost) everyone to enjoy.
Online tickets – If you have bought tickets online, you won’t get them through the post. In an effort to save you money, Fringe staff ask that you bring a copy of the receipt (or identification) and you go straight in.
Festival Tickets – If you have bought a festival ticket, you will receive your pass when you attend your first event. If you haven’t, they are just £60.

Organisers say: "If you think that you may be able to help us during the festival this year, then please let us know.

"You could help by distributing programmes to places of interest or community venues near where you live, stewarding or helping out at the workshops or concerts, or just generally giving us ideas of how to publicise the events to a wider audience. Please get in touch if you are able to help."

Bryn Fon will be playing with his band on Saturday 14th July in Llangollen Town Hall. The concert is being jointly staged by the Fringe and the International Eisteddfod. Doors open 7.30pm £12.50. (This event is not included in the Festival ticket).


Yaaba Funk (World Music from Ghanaian/London band) will replace Osibisa on Saturday 20th July. (Ticket price now down to £10).
Alun Cochrane will replace Paul Sinha on 18th July. Silkie of “Kill for a Seat” + special guest will be a great night of the best stand-up around.
