Nick backs Abergavenny Art Festival funding request

MONMOUTH AM Nick Ramsay is backing an application by Trustees of the Abergavenny Arts Festival for funding from the Arts Council for Wales to assist with a new Arts Festival to be held for the first time this summer over a weekend at the end of June.

Speaking today, Mr Ramsay said: “A large number of volunteers have been meeting for many months to prepare for this exciting new festival, which will not only be a great attraction for Abergavenny but also for people from across Monmouthshire and further afield.

“Abergavenny is already well known for its Food Festival and cycling events, which attract huge numbers to the town and I am sure that the new Arts Festival will prove equally successful and hopefully become a regular fixture in the calendar.

“I wholeheartedly support the application for funding, especially as the aim of the festival is to be as inclusive as possible and to encompass the arts in the broadest sense."
