Abergavenny is a town of some 10,000 people, located on the River Usk, and close to the Brecon Beacons National Park. It is an ancient market town, complete with castle, theatres, leisure centre, museum and a number of highly regarded eating places. It is the home of the Abergavenny Food Festival in September each year, and it also hosts a number of other interesting events such as the Steam Rally in May and the Shire Horse Show in late July,. Christmas Festivities include a street parade and great Christmas lights.We also have free Band Concerts in local parks and behind the Market Hall on four Sundays in the summer. (see Events calendar) This year sees Abergavenny hosting the British Cycling National Road Race Championships in the week 23 to 29 June.
The Town is set in a really beautiful area and is well worth a visit with a whole range of things to do. This year we won a silver gilt award in the Wales in Bloom category for towns of our size.
The Town`s two main parks are being improved in contrasting ways - Linda Vista Gardens as a quiet haven with floral displays and unusual trees, Bailey Park as a sports park which also holds events during the year. Both Parks have Friends Groups in place and if you would like to join one of them please contact the Town Clerk for details. In addition there is now a Frinds of Castle Meadows group who would welcome interested members.
