Llandrindod Wells
20th - 26th August 2018

Llandrindod Wells


Determined, brilliant and romantic, Charlotte tells her story of passion and duty, triumph and tragedy, and above all - love.
Devoted to her strange and unworldly family, Charlotte Brontë was also wildly ambitious. Whilst remaining a self-effacing and dutiful daughter, abiding by all the restrictions of early Victorian life, she managed the incredible feat of becoming a hugely famous novelist. The instant success of Jane Eyre, Shirley and Villette found her mixing with the literary giants of the age.
The joy of literary success was tempered by the scandalous fall of her brother Branwell, and a succession of family disasters. Charlotte's own life, however, had an extraordinary, happy twist at the end.
The Brontë family's story has captivated the imagination for a century and a half. Alison Neil's portrayal of the life of Charlotte Brontë - using many of Charlotte's own words - provides an exceptional theatrical treat.
ACT ONE Running time: 48 minutes
ACT TWO Running time: 58 minutes

Torch Procession, torches and marching band organised by the victorian Festival.
(Torches available from the  front of the Stewards/Marshals Tent  from 6.00pm on Sunday)

The Torchlight Procession is an outdoor event using wax-based torches, please dress appropriately

Torchlight Procession is an incredibly safe event but we need participants to help maintain this. Please follow all safety instructions when carrying torches in this event.

Torches are wax based (like a big candle), safety guards are supplied to protect carrier hands from dripping wax.

Please note, wax or sparks from the torches can be blown onto clothing. Whilst easily removable (top tip – an iron and brown paper) please dress appropriately and do not carry torches if wearing delicate fabrics.

Spectators to the event are welcome but please DO NOT join the procession en-route or stand in front of the procession to take photographs.

Children 12 years of age and under are not allowed to purchase torches unless purchased and supervised by an adult over 18 years of age.
