Staff reporter (NW Chronicle)

MORE than 10,000 people from all over Britain and further afield will be travelling to Festival No 6 at Portmeirion this week-end.

Beck, the Pet Shop Boys, Kelis, Don Letts, actor/writer Charlie Higson and comedians such as Robin Ince and Henning Wehn will be at the event, which mixes culture, the arts and music.


This year visitors to the festival will be able to get a taste of Welsh while they’re there.

Every morning, Ann Bierd, who is a tutor at North Wales Welsh for Adults Centre at Bangor University, will be providing a Welsh Lesson, organised by Tim Burgess’ Tim Peaks Café.

Ifor Gruffydd, Centre Manager at Bangor University commented:

“It’s great to see that people attending such a successful festival will have the opportunity to sample a taste of the Welsh language while they’re in the area. It’s a great opportunity that I hope people will enjoy.”
