Local firm sponsors local festival’s main event

KMT Group Ltd who provide electrical, digital and renewables services in the North Wales area are this year’s main sponsors of Ruthin Festival’s Top of Town event on Saturday 1st of July on St Peters Square. 

‘We are deeply grateful to KMT Group for their support this year which will ensure the Top of Town takes place again for the benefit of the whole community’ said Festival Chair Gwion Tomos Jones

‘It is local companies like KMT, as well as other festival supporters such as LE Jones and Swayne Johnson that keep the festival going year on year’ he added.

The Top of Town event on the town square will take place on the 1st of July with bands such as Yws Gwynedd, Candelas, Wee Bag Band and the Welsh Whisperer along with local schools and choirs. The event starts at 1pm and finish at 8pm with entertainment after then in the town’s public houses. The festival’s organising committee, all of whom are volunteers, would like to remind people that no glass is allowed at the event, and that this year we will not be providing chairs (in previous years 150 chairs have been provided by the festival themselves) so are advising people to bring their own. 

Entry to the Top of Town event is £5 per adult with children free, and the festival bar will once again be at the top of Market Street and an activities area in the grounds of St Peters Church.

The festival committee are looking forward to the whole festival week which runs this year from the 24th of June until the 2nd of July 

‘There is an extensive programme planned with includes everything from art workshops and folk music, to a Shakespeare play and classical music, to a poetry session and of course the town’s annual carnival on Sunday the 25th of June on the fields of Ruthin School’ said Jim Bryan, the festival committee Vice-Chair.

‘We are particularly looking forward this year to the events being held by the Resource organisation mainly at the former Barclays bank in the town centre, which have a particular focus on reusing and recycling items and equipment such as household goods which would otherwise be thrown away’ he added

Also, a literary element to this year’s festival with local author Pat Sumner reading her recently launched book at Ruthin Library on the evening of Thursday 29th of June at 7pm.
