Knucklas Castle is holding an iron age themed event on 19th August.
The main attraction will be John Kenny and his carnyx. The carnyx is an iron age horn that he has reconstructed and plays – see his web site carnyx.org.uk He will be playing on the Friday evening in the Presteigne Assembly rooms and tickets will be available via the Festival box office.
There will also be Simon King on jazz guitar and other musicians and singers.
On the day there will be many other activities on the field – food stalls, folk music, kids games etc.
Of course we will need many volunteers to assist on the day, and also to help in the preparation and organisation. If you would like to help please contact us via the “Contact us” page or phone 01547 520263
