Our Festivals

The next festival takes place 31 March-2 April 2023 in Machynlleth.

Translated to Let’s Go, Machynlleth! in English, our festivals were born to inspire, inform and entertain audiences across the topic of travel. It’s such a vast topic of conversation and we’re so excited to hear from each and every speaker about their experiences, travel stories and their inspirations for writing.

The first ever Amdani, Fachynlleth! festival took place in November 2021 in honour of the late travel writer and author Jan Morris. 

Amdani, Fachynlleth! itself is the brainchild of Wynnstay Hotel owners Charles Dark and Sheila Simpson. The market town of Machynlleth has hosted some of Wales’ most-loved events including classical music festival Gwyl Machynlleth in the Tabernacle, the Folk Festival and the Comedy Festival over the years. Following the success of such festivals, the team saw a gap in the market for one focusing on travel and got to work to pull the first one together

Thank you/diolch to our sponsors!


Thanks to sponsors The Wynnstay Hotel, Creating Media and Culture Colony we look forward to welcoming you to Machynlleth.
