We are a specialist Real Ale Festivals for people who like small independent pubs mixed together with the local microbreweries and we arrive in Conwy twice a year. We like to tempt thirsty visitors from home and afar with our Ale Trails, because people like to be taken to smashing pubs bursting with character, some of which you’ll probably have not visited (the quirkier the better in our books as they look after the ale well).
If you’re a fan of a good day out with good mates, locally brewed ales or smashing pubs bursting with character, then this one day moving beer festival will be right up your street.
As ever, there is a minimum of three real ales in each pub (with at least 50 ales on the whole Trail) but if ale isn’t your thing, there are plenty of other drinks available and lots of atmosphere to soak up as well!
Exclusive Real Ales available only on the day
Showcasing what Conwy pubs has to offer.
There is no better time to enjoy a day out with friends tasting local brewed ales as now, as nobody needs to worry about who is driving. So grab your buddies together, get yourself some tickets online or at the pubs and let us bus you around the wonderful coast and countryside of the borough of Conwy and its finest watering holes.
Don’t forget you can start and finish at any of the pubs on the route and start and finish at anytime between 11am and 11pm.

Coffee Morning Concert with Ensemble Cymru
Wales’s leading chamber music ensemble, Ensemble Cymru, will mark its 15 year anniversary with a very special and extended concert at Venue Cymru. Bringing together world-class musicians with a passion for sharing rare chamber music from Wales and the world.
Ensemble Cymru will perform works by two living Welsh composers: a brand new commission from Gareth Glyn, as well as Emerging (lightly) by Aberdyfi-based Rhian Samuel. From the 20th century is the rarely-performed gem, Nonet, by England’s great Arnold Bax, alongside Debussy’s Dances for Harp and String Quintet, conceived as a harp ‘showcase’. Going right back to 1738, Handel’s remarkable Harp Concerto Op. 4, No. 6 draws on nearly all our varied instrumental forces for this exciting season.
