A “FAMILY friendly music festival” will return to Rhuddlan later this month for the first time in five years.

RhuddFest, based on the fields off Station Road, will be held on June 21, 22 and 23, and is set to be “bigger and better than ever”.

Tickets, from £15, are available now via the festival’s website – including three-night camping (campervan spaces now sold out), helicopter pleasure flights, day tickets, and admission to the solstice fire and light party on June 21.

It will also possible to purchase tickets on the gate at the festival, but at increased rates, while “fast track entry” is also available by buying a scannable ticket.

The summer solstice fire and light party and pyrotechnic parachute display will open the festival, along with a fire, laser and light show, fire dancers, street food, and the Batala Bangor drum band.

There will also be walkabout fire dancers, live music, street food and a licensed bar, while Blippi will be in attendance to entertain children.
