About this event

Lleswyl is a Festival-at-Home experience established to support the wellbeing of those who normally cannot attend live gigs because of chronic illness, disability, or loneliness.

Our aim is to provide an experience that everyone can share: an uplifting, fun and joyous Festival evening with the company of family, friends, and neighbours! That's why Lleswyl is free to all.

Illness (acute and chronic) and disability can be incredibly isolating, and very emotionally demanding too. Therefore, our mission at Daring to Dream is to support the emotional health and wellbeing of patients in Wales; we support those with acute or chronic illness, a disability, or who live with loneliness. We create safe, non-clinical havens for patients and families in hospitals, and provide the community with connections to the Arts for those at home.

Lleswyl is our very first Daring to Dream Festival. It is our way of acknowledging isolation and making it visible by actively encouraging those with chronic illness or disability to connect with others, with music, with laughter and with joy. Our vision is of a joyous, fun, and emotionally uplifting evening. Music is the catalyst of this wellbeing experience.

To create the full Festival-at-Home experience, we're going to link up with street food vendors to offer proper festival food and drink available to pre-order right to your door. We also want you to get dressed up as if you're in a field on a summers day - that means glitter! Our festival look make-up tutorials will show you how it's done. We're also creating our very own Lleswyl festival poster for you, your children or your friends to colour in and post online, or pop it on your fridge or display it in the windows of your homes.

Friends + outfit + makeup + food + drinks + music = the full festival experience. And, we want to see it all! Post your selfies on social media throughout the night for us all to see, share, and comment on.

The night itself will be one of diverse music and bands, short scheduled sets interspersed with inspiring cameo films of those with illness, but who don’t let it define them. Our line-up includes: Calan, The Gentle Good, Ify Iwobi, Ify Iwobi Live Band, Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, ROOT DOCTORS and Dr & the Medics. More bands are to be announced soon!

Lleswyl is a professional end-to-end digital production, live-streamed to our website (https://daringtodream.wales/) for you at home, by Ratio Studios.

Although Lleswyl is a free event, donations to Daring to Dream www.daringtodream.wales to help us provide other events to support patients with chronic illness in Wales would be really welcome.
