MARCH 2013 PORTMEIRION NEWS
Quite a few news items have reached The Unmutual Website in recent weeks, so here is a little summary of them as they will all be of much interest to readers.
The first is that the BBC4 programme "Heritage! The Battle for Britain's past" featured Portmeirion and Sir Clough Williams-Ellis in a March 2013 episode.
In other news, part of the line-up for the 2013 Festival Number Six in Portmeiron, has been announced with none other than legendary Welsh rockers Manic Street Preachers (above left), along with James Blake, announced as headliners. The Manics of course are no stranger to Portmeirion having used the beach for the cover of their album "This is My Truth, Tell me Yours".
The Festival, a huge success in 2012 (see news items below) runs from 14th-16th September 2013 and includes live music, poetry, comedy, and more. For more acts click HERE and HERE or find Festival Number Six on Facebook!
In other local news, it has been announced that despite its listed status the bridge which runs accross the estuary from Portmeirion (by the Harlech toll road) is to be demolished and replaced (more news HERE).
Portmeirion can also now be seen as part of Google's Street View HERE.
