October Events in Anglesey

One of the biggest events in the Isle of Anglesey calendar comes around again for 2014 in the form of the Anglesey Oyster Festival. Back in the day, this occasion was a raucous knees-up with plenty of singing and dancing but since it became a Welsh produce festival too in 2000, it’s become a fantastic day out for the whole family.

Halloween – Plas Newydd – 29/10/2014

There are many fantastic Halloween events in Anglesey, but for sheers spooky factor, the archaic setting of Plas Newydd is hard to beat. Children are welcomed to take a terror trip around the mansion and its gardens without jumping out of your skin thanks to all the scary sights on offer! Crafts are also available in the evening.

Also on the day is a fantastic Punch & Judy display on the famous mansion grounds. It’s rumoured that the act originated in North Wales decades ago so it’s quite fitting and it will be a great alternative for the youngsters who may not quite be old enough for the spooks galore later on.
