North Wales Blues and Soul Festival runs from Friday 2nd August to Sunday 4th August 2019 at Theatr Clwyd's outdoor event arena on the outskirts of Mold, Flintshire, North Wales!
Once you have exchanged your ticket for a wristband at the Festival entrance, you can re-enter for as long as your ticket is valid. Damaged, tampered or un-attached wristbands will not be accepted.
Please observe the rules of the festival...
It is not recommended that young children get too close to the sound systems for the main stage and would recommend using ear protection on children for their own comfort if it is felt necessary.
Please respect the enjoyment of other festival goers in controlling accompanying children. If children are deemed to be an unacceptable nuisance to other festival goers they may be asked to leave.
The music on each evening will go on until 9:30pm. You should use your judgement and knowledge of your children to determine whether they will find this enjoyable or too late for them.
For hygiene and safety reasons only registered assistance dogs will be allowed in any part of the Festival Site, including the campsite. Dogs cannot be left in vehicles or caravans at any time. Visitors attempting to bring a dog (other than a guide dog) on to the campsite or Festival site will be turned away.
Please note we do not offer any refunds or exchanges on tickets unless the event is cancelled.
Tickets are only available from Theatr Clwyd Box Office, in advance or on the day if capacity allows.
If you need medical assistance whilst on the festival site, St John Ambulance are operating the First Aid Point which is located in the corner of the field to the right of the stage. In an emergency you should contact a security officer or steward who can contact first aid by radio.
There are no cash points on the Festival Site.
Smoking is not allowed in any of the marquees or structures. Visitors who wish to smoke are asked to respect others by restraining from smoking in busy areas, around children or around food. Please respect the site and dispose of cigarette butts in the receptacles provided.
Any enquiries about lost property should be made at the Festival office
Yes, you will be allowed to bring both picnics and chairs with you, but please respect others when setting up your chairs and picnic area! Please also see the Festival policy above regarding alcohol and BBQs. Gazebos, parasols or any other item that may obstruct views for other festival goers are not allowed.
There will be a quantity of chairs available to hire at the Festival to save you carrying a chair across town!
Yes, please contact us for details of the disabled blue-badge parking and access information.
If you are disabled you are entitled to one free carer ticket, which requires proof that you are in receipt of the middle or higher rate care component of the DLA. Once you have purchased your own ticket, please contact us for your carer’s ticket. After which, a free carer’s ticket will have been added to your order reference. Your free carer’s ticket will be exactly the same type you have ordered for yourself, be it weekend or a day ticket.
There is a large undercover car park operated by Flintshire County Council at the front of the building with tunnel access direct to the theatre foyer. The tunnel entrance has steps so is not suitable for those with access needs.
Recently the council has introduced charges to use the car park Monday to Saturday from 8am to 5pm. However it is only £1.50 for a full day or 50p for 2 hours. During the festival this will only really be applicable for the Saturday.
We ask for people to avoid parking outside the front of the building to ensure disabled access and for emergency service access.
There are cycle racks outside the theatre. We are unable however to take responsibility for cycles secured in this way. Cycles will not be allowed in the main performance / audience areas of the Festival.
YES! Our Festival Camping this year will be on site at Theatr Clwyd. There is dedicated hard-standing for motor-homes and caravans and a large grassy area for tents. Toilets and showers inside the theater are available to campers in the mornings and portable toilets will be provided for overnight use. The drinking water tap and drainage facility are adjacent. Book your camping now with your festival tickets, to secure a pitch, and enjoy a weekend of fantastic performances by acclaimed blues and soul musicians, real ale, good food and good company.
Campervans, caravans, trailer tents and any other 'sleep in' vehicle will be on an allocated hard standing area of the site. Numbers will be limited. Depending on available space, one vehicle parked per pitch may allowed other vehicles must be parked on the car park.
There are no specific plot sizes in the camp site but we would ask guests to please be considerate when pitching tents. Although there are no specific pitch sizes, you should arrange your tents in such a way to minimise the space you use. If you are using an unreasonable amount of space you may be asked to re-pitch or take some tents down.
As is the way at all festivals you should expect to camp close to your neighbours, with a safe distance between you. Please don't try to reserve space for others, if you wish to camp with others please meet prior and enter the camp site together.
Mold is a small market town with a very low crime and anti-social behaviour rate. Whilst Festival volunteers will provide passing attention to the camp site during the day, they obviously cannot guarantee the security of valuables left in tents or elsewhere. It is recommended that valuable items are therefore left secured in the boots of vehicles, kept on your person or left at home.
The use of the site is therefore at your own risk and you should ensure you have adequate insurance if you are concerned.
Electric hook ups are not available
