Conwy Feast

The 9th Conwy Feast was another great success for Conwy town, with the streets thronged with visitors until late on Saturday evening, and still busy on the wet Sunday. Conwy BKA shared the Farming for Food tent with various livestock: cattle, sheep, geese, small pigs, chickens and a very large horse. We made contact with over 20 would-be beekeepers. Many thanks to everybody who supported the event.
