From endurance sports, food festivals to classic concerts.
Any excuse really, especially if there’s food involved. Our favourite foodie events include the Pembrokeshire Fish Week at the end of June. It’s a seriously fishy festival, if you excuse the pun. Then there’s the Big Retreat Wales in Lawrenny, family fun, food, fitness and music and the Narberth Food Festival at the end of September, but there are plenty more.
We like our music festivals too. Anything from Blues to Bach. Here are the highlights:
The Torch Theatre in Milford Haven, The Queens Hall in Narberth, Rhos Y Gilwen near Boncath, Theatre Mwldan in Cardigan and Theatre Gwaun in Fishguard are the bigger venues and all have daily if you fancy a good night out. If you'd like something more intimate try some of the local pubs and cafes, or see our attractions search for musical attractions in Pembrokeshire.
When it comes to our big sporting event, Ironman Wales, having fun is a really serious business. The competitors have to swim 2.4 miles, cycle 112 miles then run a marathon! They do get 17 hours to complete the course (the 2014 winner only took 9 hours and 7 minutes). Spectators have a slightly easier day but all that clapping. It’s exhausting!
Nestled between the Preseli’s and the coast, Fishguard boasts world class music and mouthwatering food, making it the perfect bolt hole for a weekend away.
A weekend full of soulful singing, boisterous beat boxing and awesome acapella that left the cobbles ringing in the streets of Narberth and our hearts bursting with song.
