Festival Number 6

6 - 9 September 2018

Portmeirion, Wales

Portmeirion is a unique and magical site, offering nature and eccentricity in equal measures. It perfectly reflects Festival 6's vision of an intimate boutique music and arts festival, sculpted for those who enjoy life's finer things. A festival which is a scene but not a herd, which explores and embraces individual expression and offers you the chance to put reality on hold for a few days. Lose yourself in your own fairytale in the iconic setting where 'The Prisoner' was filmed. Bring your own tent, or choose to stay in one of our boutique yurts, tipis or bell tents. Treat yourself to staying in the village itself, either in the castle or in one of the individual gatehouses, towers or cottages, each with their own unique character.

Cotswold Airport, Cirencester, Gloucestershire, GL7 6BA.
On 29th and 30th September Cotswold Airport is throwing open its gates to the public once again for its incredible vintage and wartime extravaganza, the ‘Cotswold Airport Revival Festival’. Last year saw the inaugural launch of this hugely popular event, which started out as an informal fundraising Open Day for 500 people, and ended up as a major event with over 10,000 visitors! Due to the tremendous success of last year’s event, Cotswold Airport has teamed up with ‘Live Promotions Events Ltd’, a powerhouse of an organisation that has been putting on famous large-scale events including Truckfest, Pistons & Props and many big-name concerts such as Tom Jones, UB40 and Billy Ocean for over 50 years. The fusion of Cotswold Airport and Live Promotions will bring to the public one of the UK’s most unforgettable events, seeing visitors pouring in from all over the country. The festival is an annual event, that will happen every year during the last weekend in September. The event this year will be a two-day event, and is set to be an absolutely unforgettable weekend with lots of exciting activities and attractions for all the family. Both days will be packed full of dramatic re-enactments and demonstrations; thrilling vintage air fly-ins; exciting rides and experience flights; hundreds of vintage and military vehicles; full size and miniature steam engines; and plenty of entertainment including period live music.
