Celebrate Spring's arrival at our first ever walking Festival in Talgarth.
We have castles and mountains, red kites and otters, an ancient hill fort, burial mounds, waterfalls, and a restored watermill.
You can take part in the 'Witches Pool Challenge', then enjoy a beer brewed right here in Talgarth's Rotters Mini-Brewery, with a wood fired pizza at the Mill or you can enjoy good food and drink elsewhere in the town.
This is a beautiful and unspoilt part of the Brecon Beacons National Park, and should you tire of walking, you can even hire an Eco-Car.
Free parking and a warm welcome awaits you in the 'Gateway to the Black Mountains'.
Talgarth Walking Festival
Close to Brecon, Crickhowell and Hay-on-Wye, Talgarth is an ideal base for visitors wishing to explore the Brecon Beacons National Park on foot, whether it's the high peaks or the lush green valleys of the Wye and the Usk which capture the imagination.
We hope to give visitors to the area a taste of our town and the wonderful walking opportunities we have on our doorstep and we hope that local residents will rediscover some old paths and memories, renew their passion for the countryside and make some new friends too.
Melin Talgarth Mill has offered to be the Festival Hub, providing a meeting and information point for the duration of the weekend.
Programmes and tickets will be available from the end of March; our programme looks like this (some details still to be confirmed).
