Coming together for the love of music

Throughout its 35 years the Festival has got bigger and better and now includes the Carnival, Busking Festival and a growing Fringe.  The Festival prides itself on being extremely friendly, relaxed and an opportunity for families and all generations of people to come together and enjoy themselves. The Festival is organised by a committee of hard working unpaid volunteers for the people of Monmouth town and the surrounding areas.  Monmouth Festival is a Not For Profit Organisation and all proceeds are invested in improving and securing future festivals.

Visit the festival as a group

If you decide to come to the Monmouth Festival for a week or the weekend you and a group of friends can stay in one of our nearby holiday homes from less than £150 per head during July*!

You can hire a mini bus to drop you off in the town centre where you can go shopping on one of the most independent high streets in the UK and then have it take you back safely in the evening after a great night of music.

With room capacity suitable for groups of 12 to 26, we can accommodate most parties that would like to attend the festival.  Have a look at our large cottages and see which one works for you.

Don’t hesitate to book your large holiday cottage!

Book quickly though as these dates are tremendously popular and are not available for long!

If you do decide to book with us, feel free to ask us what our favourite venue in Monmouth is and we’ll be happy to recommend one.
