FIREWORKS marked the end of Llandrindod Well’s 37th Victorian Festival on Sunday – one of the biggest events in the town’s calendar.

The festival, which took place between August 20 and 26, and featured a wide range of events and activities, was a huge success according to town mayor, Cllr Jon Williams.

“The week was really successful. We saw visitors coming in for the event. I spoke to a group that had come up from Carmarthen on a coach trip and they had enjoyed everything,” Cllr Williams said.

Many attendees of the festival dressed up in traditional Victorian dress, with outfit competitions taking place throughout the week. Cllr Williams said: “It was amazing.”

The mayor also said that there was a “great display” of fireworks, which took place to mark the end of the festival.

“The whole thing was very well attended despite the weather,” Cllr Williams said.

The festival’s events included a daily morning promenade, honours being bestowed by ‘Queen Victoria’, an exhibition at the Hotel Metropole, and a world premier performance of Dickins’ ‘A Tale of Two Cities’, adapted by his great-great-grandson.
