We’re working with the team there to bring to life a music event with a country fayre feel - with mainstream, big name acts on stage, and plenty to keep youngsters occupied in the buildings and features around the parkland.
St Fagan’s National History Museum contains over forty original buildings from different historical periods, including farmhouses, a school, a chapel, Workmen's Institute, row of terraced cottages and a working blacksmiths – all lovingly relocated from across Wales, and recently revamped with the addition of new features.

St Fagans is one of Europe’s leading open-air museums, a heritage attraction visited by millions that is a rite of passage for Welsh youngsters eager to discover their cultural history down the ages amongst 100 acres of beautiful parkland.
A 16th century manor house, St Fagans Castle and gardens was donated to the people of Wales by the Earl of Plymouth in 1946, and over the years it has become a centre for education, enlightenment and entertainment. Though there have been numerous events staged there over the years, this is the first large scale music event to be held at the attraction.
Gates will open at 4.00pm and tickets are £45, and £22.50 for 5-16 year olds, with under 5s free. Parking is limited so fayre-goers are being encouraged to use public transport and car share with other fayre goers. See faq for full details on transport.
