Event description

Description

An event not to be missed! Celebrating Thomas Telford's 11-mile Pontcysyllte Aqueduct & Canal UNESCO World Heritage Site, Underneath the Arches is a music & light spectacular with a family-friendly atmosphere!

Nestled under the towering 126ft pillars is the Bont playing field which will be transformed into a picnic in the park style evening on Friday 14th July!

With live music from bands THE RHYTHM TRAIN, 32. RED, THE MOMENTS and BOBCAT BILLY'S MOONSHINE MISSION - we will wrap up the evening with a spectacular laser & firework show high above the Dee Valley!

Food & soft drinks will be available on-site, however we also encourage you to bring your own picnics too! Alcohol is permitted on-site, but limited. Please check out our website for more information!

Parking is FREE on the evening, but please note that there is a 0.5mile walk (downhill) from the car park and a 0.5mile (uphill) walk at the end of the evening. Shuttle buses will NOT be running this year.

Finally, we also advise caution if you have a disability due to the uneven nature of the field and access may be difficult for some people.
