FelinFach is primarily an on-line Shop which is 'open' 24/7 but also visits numerous festivals and craft fairs throughout the year.
Our first major event of the year will be at the Bradford on Avon Food & Drink Festival on 1st June 2019.
At the Food and Drink Festival, there will be an impressive line-up of celebrity chefs and artisan food producers who are already booked in to ensure that this inaugural summer event launches in style. We have linked up with Humble Country Events who have been asked to create the Humble Country Village. This will provide the perfect opportunity for the home and food loving visitors to shop for their homes and gardens.
Our Exhibition Stand will be in this Country Village marquee. We will be showcasing the whole range of FelinFach products. These include Welsh blankets, Welsh tapestry blankets, throws and cushions. We will also have our full range of hand dyed yarn, silk, cotton and merino wool scarves and hand bound notebooks.
The Bradford on Avon Food and Drink Festival aims to be a celebration of all that is wonderful and delicious in the South West. Local and national produce at its very best, with local people enjoying all that is on offer in a fun, vibrant atmosphere in the centre of this gorgeous and historic market town. The Food Festival is run by a local company who are experienced and established Food Festival organisers. There will be plenty of amazing food and drink to eat, lots of wonderful shopping opportunities and plenty to keep you occupied.
The Chef Demonstration Stage will be full to the brim with stunning food and genuine talent, with both national and local chefs demonstrating their culinary skills.

Cilmeri (Cilmery or Kilmery) is a small village in Powys, mid-Wales but is of great historical importance to Wales. It is also a sad place, for it was there that the last Welsh-born Prince Llywelyn ap Gruffudd died. Llywelyn was killed in the battle of Irfon Bridge in a minor skirmish with the soldiers of England’s King Edward I on 11th December 1282
