festival-logo-2016R&M May Festival

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.
