Burning Lantern Fayre launches in Wales

The first Burning Lantern Fayre will take place at the St Fagans National History Museum next year.

The event at one of Europe’s leading open-air museums will see the newly confirmed Tom Odell and Jack Savoretti, as well as many more, appear at the family friendly country fayre.

Burning Lantern will host a main stage featuring live music through the day, with added street food and craft ales, amusements and entertainment.

“St Fagans is such a Welsh national treasure that has played a significant role over the years in bringing Welsh history to life in a lovely setting for generations of families,” organiser Pablo Janczur says. “We are bringing our musical expertise to produce a real family treat with some major international talent in this unique venue, with mainstream, big name acts on stage, and plenty to keep youngsters occupied in the buildings and features around the parkland. If it’s the success we hope for, we’ll look to make the fayre an annual event in this amazing location.”
