Autumn Festival 2020 for Radyr & Morganstown

The Radyr & Morganstown Association (RMA) have been thinking about how we might still organise some form of Festival in 2020 whilst working within the current restrictions. We are pleased to bring you a ‘Mini Autumn Festival’.

It will start on Friday 18 September 2020 and run for just over a week. All events will either be outside (with appropriate ‘social distancing’) or held online.

Read more about the events planned so far in our News Article on the Autumn Festival. The full schedule of competitions and events has now been published on the Festival website – http://rmfestival.org.uk
