Aberystwyth’s Summer Entertainment Season
Menter Aberystwyth, with the support of Aberystwyth Town Council, organise the Summer Entertainment Season each year. This seasonal entertainment is provided free of charge to residents, students and all Aberystwyth’s visitors at the new Bandstand on the Promenade.
This year’s programme contained many more diverse types of entertainment such as Poetry on the Prom; an art exhibition; an afternoon workshop run by the Awaken Theatre and the summer play scheme run by St Michael’s Church as well as acts which have appeared in the town’s summer season for many years such as the Aberystwyth Silver Band, the Machynlleth Wind Band and various choirs with performances ranging from sea shanties to traditional Welsh hymns. Line dancing and traditional Welsh folk dancing can be enjoyed; folk songs, swing jazz and songs from the musicals all serenade those strolling the Promenade!
Picnic in the Park (at Castle Green), Hwyl ar y Prom and the Sea2shore Festival all form part of Aberystwyth’s summer entertainment where all kinds of entertainment, stalls and activities can be enjoyed.
