The first weekend of September 2016, 50 years to the month after location filming for 'The Prisoner' began in Portmeirion, saw a weekend of special location tour events relating to the series, and 'Danger Man', each free to attend.
As well as four days of tours to locations of both shows, the weekend also included an astonishingly detailed tour of the former site of MGM Studios, where of course the interiors for the series were filmed in 1966/67.

Also that weekend, the fifth annual 'Festival Number Six' music and arts festival took place in Portmeirion. According to reports, the best of the musical performances were co-headliners Bastille, and a jaw-dropping David Bowie tribute, which featured the talents of Charlotte Church and others.
This year's festival, however, may be forever remembered for issues regarding the park and ride area, which predictably flooded, and reports of poor organisation and overcrowding. Please note that, following messages sent to The Unmutual Website, it needs to be made clear that neither Portmeirion nor TUW are in any way involved in the organising of the festival - Portmeirion is merely the venue and TUW merely advertises the event, as it does all events, and as such any comments or complaints/claims regarding the organisation or parking at the event should be directed to Festival Number Six Limited.
