Easter 2016:folking About In Anglesey!

Recommended Posts

Thursday 24th March – Tuesday 29th March 2016

[Free DIY Music & Song Sessions Event]

(Please note that this event is not a Folk Festival.

There are no paid acts.

All music & song is unamplified & purely acoustic)

All welcome!


The 7th glorious year's grand venture in wild Wales presented by Mr Happy enterprises will be taking place once again this Easter in Anglesey, North Wales.

At Easter, Mr Happy & the Gloom Band [from Chester] plus many other musical friends, will be off to the Bull Bay Hotel, Bull Bay, Nr. Amlwch, Anglesey for our annual singing & music event –

Once more onto the beach, dear friends!!

It'll be on from Maundy Thursday 24th until Tuesday 29th March 2016

It's set up just like a folk festival but without any concerts or stuff you have to pay for.

Also 'cause everything's on site, there's no need to wander the streets looking for a session.

Bull Bay Hotel's a large venue which can offer up to 4 separate rooms/ areas for different sorts of seshes – singarounds, folk club, mad Irish diddly thrash, seriously non-smiling English music, dreary French tunes, Old Timey/ Bluegrass, maudlin unaccompanied dirges, etc

[i've tried to cater for all tastes as far as possible & over the last several years of running the event, this has worked out well]

(Mr Happy blowing own trumpet – please forgive!)

All welcome - come on down - it'll be brill!!

The campsite will be available from Thursday 24th March – Tuesday 29th March 2016

It's a DIY do- bring yourselves, voices, instruments ,your tents, vans, caravans & kitchen sink!
