Festival No. 6 My final festival of the summer (and the year) finds me back at Portmeirion for the fifth Festival No.6, and my fourth visit to this wonderfully eclectic festival. The festival is spread over many stages across the “village” and the wider Portmeirion estate. As well as the usual festival style stages held in open fields, almost every nook and cranny in the village and the surrounding woodland was intended to be filled with something of interest going on over the weekend with over 1000 artists taking part in the festival.

Festival No.6 As another Summer turns towards yet another Autumn, and with warm days soon to be replaced by shorter cooler days, I find myself in North Wales, (or more precisely) in Portmeirion, for my second visit to Festival No.6 now in its third year of being. Portmeirion, a rich and colourful Italianate village designed by the late Architect, William Clough Ellis and built overlooking the River Dwryryd estuary was home to the 1960’s cult TV show “The Prisoner”, the lead character played by Patrick McGoohan who was the “No.6” that the festival references.

This Italianate village was designed by Architect William Clough Ellis and built overlooking the River Dwryryd estuary and is a brightly coloured jewel nestled in the Welsh hillside.
