    2017 is all about entertainment!

    After all the helpful suggestions in the customer comments forms we have reworked our Thursday to focus on entertainments:

    Thursday
    Daytime: meet the brewer sessions including Pipes, Crafty Devil, Hopcraft, Greytrees and Ollies. If you have ever wanted to meet the brewer of your favourite local tipple, ask him some questions and sample his products then now is your chance.

    6pm: John's Salacious pub quiz. What's better than a pub quiz in the local pub with a beer token prize pot and the odd bad joke?

    8pm: Acoustic Routes radio show are bringing their roadshow to the festival and have organised two terrific live acts, Up the Creek and Ofelia. We can't wait!

    Friday
    The Cardiff Morris are back by popular demand!

    Saturday
    Treharris Male Voice Choir are in attendance. it would'nt be the GWBCF without the male voice choir now would it?
