This was revealed at the latest meeting of the town’s chamber of trade and tourism held at the Hand Hotel on Monday evening.A representative of Llangollen Tourist Information Centre told members that, as far as she knew, nothing was yet planned to entertain visitors on Saturday, March 1, with neither the Silver Band nor a school choir scheduled to make an appearance.
However, she said she was still awaiting information from “a few” other organisations on whether they had anything organised for the day.Chamber chairman David Davies said: “I think this is an opportunity we shouldn’t miss to provide some kind of entertainment so that people stay around and spend money in the town.”
Looking ahead to other events, Mr Davies said a major bluegrass music festival would be coming to Llangollen for the first time this summer, which presented a good business opportunity and would hopefully become an annual local event.* The Coastline Bluegrass Music Event is due to be held at Llangollen Pavilion from June 6-8.
The line-up features The Sons of Navarone (Belgium), The Bluegrass Playboys (Norway), The New Essex Bluegrass Band and The Feet First Appalachian Clog Dancers.
There will also be concerts, Appalachian dance, workshops, open mic and Young Bluegrassers.
Weekend tickets are from £40.For more information, see: http://hairyphotographer.co.uk/ai1ec_event/coastline-bluegrass-festival/?instance_id=
