Northop campus to host top music festival

July 6 2011

Glynd┼Ár University and Deeside College’s Northop campus will play host to an internationally-renowned music festival.

Gwyl Gobaith Music Festival will feature headliners Rhydian Roberts, of X Factor fame, Three Welsh Tenors and Only Men Aloud and will be held on 26, 27 and 28 August. 

The festival is a three-day event whose inspiration is led by international opera singer Rhys Meirion, and is supported by a dedicated committee and volunteers. 

The three-day festival’s main sponsor this year will be Wales’s largest employer, Airbus in the UK, based in Broughton, Flintshire. Airbus has nominated CLIC Sargent, the UK’s leading cancer charity for children and young people, as their charity and money raised on the Sunday evening finale concert will be donated to the cause. 

The closing night will be headlined by Only Men Aloud. The festival will close with a firework display. 

Tickets are available through the Clwyd Theatr Cymru box office on 0845 3303565 and online at, or through the Gwyl Gobaith Music festival website
