The annual May Festival runs from Saturday, 30th April to Sunday, 15th May. All residents in R&M should have received a copy of the Festival Brochure (and a few Prize Draw tickets) in Radyr Chain. If you haven’t got one, there are plenty in the shops in Station Road. Full details are also on the R&M Festival website from where there is a link to buy a number of tickets on line. This year the Festival is supporting Velindre Hospital so do buy as many Draw Tickets as you can.
Enjoy the Festival.
