Wicked Welsh Weekend – General Information
About the event
The Wicked Welsh Weekend (WWW) has been an annual fixture (normally held on the 3rd weekend in September) on the Imp Club Calendar since 1999. It started as a small gathering organised by Neil & Tina at the Rising Sun pub & campsite in Pandy (just outside Abergavenny) and has grown over the years into a 3 day ‘long weekend’ featuring scenic runs, evening get-togethers (including the infamous ‘Naffle’ – a wicked welsh interpretation of a raffle) and meals, and an informal ‘Show & Shine’.
In 2017 Neil & Tina asked other members of the South & West Wales Area Centre to take over the organisation and the year after that WWW moved from the Rising Sun to the Lakeside Caravan & Camping site at Llangorse (near Brecon) although the format of WWW remains essentially unchanged. The Llangorse site provides excellent camping facilities as well as a number of static caravans for hire. There is also a good selection of B&B accommodation nearby.
NB Due to the coronavirus epidemic it has not yet been confirmed that the 2020 event will go ahead. Confirmation or cancellation of this event will be posted as soon as possible.
Message from the organisers:
The 2020 event is due to be held at the Llangorse Lakeside campsite (www.llangorselake.co.uk) in the Brecon Beacons from Friday 18th to Sunday 20th September 2020. The 10 static caravans (4 berth & 6 berth) reserved for our exclusive use have already been booked. Because of the lower number of people camping in 2019 (although overall attendance was much the same as previously), the organisers have reserved the Orchard (18 pitches with EHU plus 1 without) for camping rather than the larger Ernie’s Field.
Coronavirus Information. If this event does take place then in order to comply with ‘social distancing’ or other regulations imposed by the Welsh Government the format may well be quite a bit different from usual. This is likely to apply particularly to the meal arrangements and the social side of the event.
Bookings can be made by contacting the site directly – details below. Please book by telephone as, having reserved the Orchard & the static caravans for our exclusive use, the website will say that there is limited availability. There is a deposit payable upon booking, which is deducted from the total cost of your stay. Bed & breakfast accommodation is available in Llangorse village (within walking distance) with further accommodation in nearby Bwlch and Brecon – see http://aroundllangorselake.co.uk/accommodation.
