Many people are under the impression that the festival is run and presented by the Conwy Council. The truth is that the council only provides an office for the organizing committee. This great festival is managed and organised by a community interest company. Many people are curious about Conway and why they should pay an entrance fee to gain access to the festival.
Reality is that it cost more than 160,000 pounds to stage the Gwledd Conwy Fest. The committee receives a very small amount from the Welsh government and some other sponsors. The balance is from their own account. Entrance fees are used to cover the remaining costs.
These costs include publicity of the festival, marketing, management, stewards, refuse collection, environmental health, safety, and insurance to name a few. It can not be disputed that with approximately 25,000 people visiting the festival, that local businesses along with the community benefit greatly from this opportunity.
Accessibility is no problem for the disabled. Although there are many stretches of cobbled streets, it is easy to go around in a wheelchair. There are designated parking for disabled patrons and all marquees are accessible with a wheelchair. For purely hygienic reasons no dogs are allowed at the festival. Only service or assistance dogs are allowed.
Only two cash points are available in Conwy. One is on High Street inside the Spar and the other is a converted telephone box at the top of High Street. It is possible for these two outlets to run out of cash quickly especially during the festival. Surrounding places such as Tesco that is only about a mile away have plenty of cash machines available.
