This weekend sees the official opening, starting tonight with a whole host of bands, food and beer. Music includes: Cidfloss Corporation, Something Personal followed by Red Stripe, Noel, Merlin + Liam - mixing tunes, Bandacabana, and world class jazz from Huw, Maria & Zoot Warren.
The Y Fricsan is also the focal point for a North Wales bouldering meet, this weekend, organised by Chris Davis, see a report by Simon Panton at northwalesbouldering.com
The Y Fricsan is set on 8 acres of land and includes a large campground and bunkhouse accomodation. They serve excellent homemade food (I've sampled it - the tuna was great) and good beer. Sue said that they will be moving to almost exclusively organic and locally produced in the future. Both omnivores and vegetarians are catered for.
