A new festival for Newtown is due to take place on 17th September in the Park

The Newtown Fun Fest is being organised by a group of organisations, including Powys County Council, the North Powys Wellbeing Programme, local county councillor Cllr. Joy Jones, PAVO, Dyfed Powys Police, MAWWFIRE, Credu, the Youth Service, Newtown Family Integrated Centre, Open Newtown, Sports Powys and Freedom Leisure.

The event will be taking place in the Park Grounds between 11am and 3pm and will feature music, family activities, crafts, sports and a whole lot more. Entry to the event will be free and there will be plenty of free activities and food too, although some stalls may charge for some things.

Jo Hughes, one of the organising group commented:

“We’ll be announcing more details for this event nearer the date but we’re very excited to get the date in people’s diaries.  The original idea for this event – from Cllr. Joy – was to spread a bit of kindness around Newtown as families deal with the effects of the pandemic and the pressures of the current cost of living crisis. And that’s what we’ll be trying to do, with as many free things as possible available on the day.”

The team is hoping for contributions for the event but the main funders are  the North Powys Wellbeing Programme and the Powys Together project.
