Mai festivals

This summer we are out and about all over Wales bringing the Goodwash vibe to festivals everywhere. Keep an eye on our social channels for our precise location. But we start in our very favourite place, Barri.

Gwyl Fach y Fro – The little festival in the Vale – 18th May 

We are kicking off our festival season at Barry Island’s traditional May event – Gwyl Fach y Fro – on Saturday  May 18th. And we couldn’t think of a better place to start.

Our criw will be walking the 900 yard journey to the beach front to host a Goodwash Company stall at ‘the little festival in the vale’. Adn they will be laden with your favorite skin, hair and fur products along with a few surprises. 

Gŵyl Fach y Fro is the annual festival established by Menter Bro Morgannwg in 2015 to celebrate the use of the Welsh language in the Vale of Glamorgan. The festival is located on the main Barry Island Promenade and now plays an important part in our community. 

A spokesperson for Gŵyl Fach y Fro said: “All entertainment is presented in Cymraeg, allowing festival-goers to immerse themselves in the beauty of the Welsh language. “Whether you’re a fluent speaker or just curious, this is an opportunity to celebrate Wales’ linguistic heritage…Gŵyl Fach y Fro is more than a music festival—it’s a celebration of Welsh culture in all its forms.”

Enjoy Welsh Music, local street food, craft stalls and food and drink all along the prom from 11am til late. Come meet our criw on Saturday 18th and introduce your four legged family members.

And for early risers there is a Barry Island Park Run that morning, starting and finishing under the pavilion by the beach huts… see you there?
