Communities in Pembrokeshire will stage a series of entertainment and activities to welcome visitors to Milford Haven Waterway for its SeaFair Festival 3-10 July 2010.
Dale, Neyland, Lawrenny and Pembrokeshire Adventure Centre are the main host ports for over 200 vessels during SeaFair Week. Pembroke, Angle, Milford Haven, Pembroke Dock, Landshipping, Llangwm and Haverfordwest will also be hosting events. They will welcome crews and celebrate their own communities, staging entertainment ranging from live music to sampling traditional Pembrokeshire produce.
Coordinator, John Arcus commented; “SeaFair is growing into an international festival that embodies and celebrates traditional sailing and vessels. It also engages both crews and the public in a week long programme that has a blend of seamanship, camaraderie and exploration; mixed in with good food, entertainment and Welsh hospitality.
“We are so pleased that the communities and yacht clubs have got into the ethos of the event and are delighted to have each port on board as they are all beautiful locations.”
Lawrenny has a team of volunteers who worked hard to organise accommodation and arrange hospitality for the crews. Stephen Oates of Lawrenny said, “The whole village has been mobilised to welcome SeaFair and provide a full programme of shore-based evening events. The village is looking forward to a really special and enjoyable week for visitors and residents alike.”
