4th - 14th July

The Caerleon Festival is a non-commercial community enterprise celebrating the arts throughout the year and promoting the special place that is Caerleon. It is created by the Community for the Community, but its appeal extends far and wide.

The Festival promotes the special place that is Caerleon – ancient “city” steeped in history, mystery and legend; Roman Fortress with Amphitheatre, Baths and Barracks; site of medieval castle where Owain Glyndwr raised his standard; King Arthur’s Camelot perhaps; set on the banks of the River Usk whose mighty tidal ebb and flow inspired Alfred Lord Tennyson.

The festival is home to talented musicians and entertainers within the heart of Caerleon and it's most loved pubs/ streets/ roman heritage, and takes place for several days, with THE BIG FREE taking place during the final weekend, ensuring the event finishes on a high!

Customers can travel on the 27, 29/29a and 60 services to get to Caerleon, with buses available every 15-20 minutes. One of our latest bus times is the 23:00 29a service, meaning during this fun filled weekend, you'll never miss out on fun.

Various venues around Caerleon are used from pubs to the football club and the Festival Meadow. Check the full programme on the event's website.
