about

Burning Lantern is a brand new music event for Wales, a family country fayre in St Fagans, the national focal point for the celebration of Welsh culture, with international performers Tom Odell and Jack Savoretti with more to be announced.

Burning Lantern will light up St Fagans with a main stage featuring live music through the day, with street food and craft ales, amusements and entertainment creating a family fayre in one of Wales’ leading tourist attractions.

St Fagans is a Welsh national treasure and such a beautiful setting for an event of this kind. 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.



around the site

The main stage will be set up in a field in the heart of the village, and various buildings such as the Cockpit and areas of the parkland will host entertainment and workshops for youngsters such as circus skills, pony rides, arts and crafts, an acoustic stage on the village green, plus plenty of street food and craft ales to keep the party going.



st fagans national history museum

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.



logistics

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.
