ORGANISERS behind the Other Voices music festival in Cardigan have been praised by the town council.

A letter is to be sent to Theatr Mwldan thanking it for its efforts and the work it put in to running a fantastic weekend of live music gigs at multiple venues in Cardigan.

Cllr Clive Davies said: “They had little notice and turned it around very quickly. It was an exceptional event and very good for the town. It attracted so many people into Cardigan, both in the day and at night and was a big boost to the local economy.”

Cllr Davies is also keen to examine the possibility of twinning Cardigan with the town of Dingle, in Ireland, where the Other Voices festival has its roots.

“We have so much in common with them, with a similar population and challenges, and it would be something to explore,” added Cllr Davies.
