A big welcome to everyone who has joined the Draig Beats page, we are super excited to invite you all to our first event!

Draig Beats will be held on Saturday the 9th of June 2018 from 11am until 8pm in Treborth Botanic Garden. It’s a family friendly, fund raising event with plenty of live music, workshops, food & drink and lots of activities to keep the kids busy!

We are trying to keep ticket prices to a minimum but still aim to raise as much money as possible to help support our friend and colleague Sophie Williams who has returned to live in North Wales following years of intensive care after contracting Japanese Encephalitis.

All the acts, DJs, workshops and staff have kindly offered their skills for free, all profits from the food and bars and 100% of ALL ticket sales will be going directly to the Sophie Williams Trust, so please join us for a great day out and help us raise as much money as possible!

We have a great lineup of music and entertainment to announce over the coming weeks, so please keep checking back to the page and help spread the event amongst your friends.

WHAT’S ON

Live bands and DJs across two music stages • Syrcas Cimera • Capoeira Workshop • Wild Elements Forest school • Tea & Cake Stalls • Willow Weaving Workshop • Home Cooked Vegetarian Food • Fully Licensed Bar • Much more to be announced
