CENARTH River Festival will take place on Sunday, July 30 with fun promised for all the family.

The popular annual event will feature everything from a dog show to coracle races.

The festival will start at 11am when it is opened by Mathew Crossman, with a performance by Ensemble Llantrisant at 11.30am.

There will also be a coracle demonstration and races, craft and cake stalls, tombola, canoes and fishing demonstrations. The dog show is scheduled to start at noon.

Secretary Eifion Collins said: “A tv company is looking to come down and do some filming and get involved in the coracle races.

“Also, 1,000 yellow ducks going off Cenarth bridge into the river is quite a sight.”

All the money raised at the festival will go to Cenarth Village Association, which is looking to raise money for two defibrillators.

“We are two-thirds of the way there and hopefully a good festival will help us to be able to install them,” added Mr Collins.
