Dreamlike Festival in Portmeirion
We travelled to Portmeirion in North Wales to attend Festival Number 6 with the Tree4Hope – what an extraordinary place! I wouldn’t be surprised if strange ritualistic ceremonies are held in this disney-esque village. Now that I think about it, I had a strange fear of being trapped. Must watch The Prisoner series from the 60s I think…
Welcome to Festival Number 6!
The Tree4Hope on tour through the eccentric Welsh village of Portmeirion.
Portmeirion was designed and built by a quirky millionaire in the 1920's who had fallen in love with Portofino in Italy.
Festival Number 6 took over the charming Welsh villiage which was also home to the cult 60's TV series, The Prisoner.
