Open For Bookings
Welshpool Country Music Festival 2022
The Festival is on-track to go ahead this year!
Welshpool Country Music Festival will be running July 15-17, the gates will be open at noon on the 14th and closed for noon 18th.
The Welshpool Country Music Festival is a fund raising event, brought to you by the Heulwen Trust which is a Charity dedicated to providing free boat trips for those who are less abled than most. Due to the recent pandemic, we have regretfully had to close our doors to the many who looked forward to our festival in 2020 and 2021, removing our primary source of funding.
Our largest expense is keeping our canal boats water-worthy, which is what the music festival aims to pay for every year, so that we can continue to provide a little sunshine to vulnerable and less abled adults and children in the form of exciting, scenic canal boat trips through some of the most beautiful Welsh countryside.
Since the decision to postpone the festival, we have received overwhelming feedback from our amazing festival-goers requesting a simple way to help out with what we do - we have opened a JustGiving campaign as a gateway to provide just that.
Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
The object of our charity is to provide boat trips for people (adults or children) who are less abled

FORMED IN 1985
We are a charity organisation whose aim is to bring enjoyment and pleasure to less able or vulnerable children and adults.
We do this by offering exciting scenic canal boat trips through some of the most beautiful Welsh countryside. We believe we were the first charity in the World to provide this type of service for disabled children and adults using canal boats. Our two canal boats are in constant demand by special schools, hospitals etc. To date almost 70,000 persons with varying abilities have enjoyed free daily trips
