Bryn to bring Faenol home?
Speaking before the start of Brynfest at the London South Bank, bass baritone opera star Bryn Terfel has talked of his desire to stage his Faenol Festival in Gwynedd once again.
Two years after cancelling the 2010 festival because of poor ticket sales, Terfel said to the North Wales Daily Post: "[I hope we can bring it back to] a special location between the Menai Strait and the mountains of Snowdonia.
"Over the nine years at the Faenol we've had wonderful performers and I want to see that again.
"I want to see the festival in Bangor again. All I can say is, watch this space."
Over the life of the Faenol Festival it attracted some top names to north west Wales: Jose Carreras, Andrea Bocelli, Shirley Bassey, Westlife and Hayley Westenra among them.
Brynfest runs from 4-7 July and features performances from Gruff Rhys, male voice choirs, Huw Warren and young Welsh vocal talent, plus workshops.
