We invite the public to come to the beach to make a defensive line of Sea Castles against the advance of the Seventh Wave. There will be flags on the beach to mark a space for making a castle, and biodegradable lanterns will be supplied to light the castles as dusk falls. We will spend the day building the castles and they will all be photographed and filmed. They will be built below the tideline. As the tide advances and the sun sets our filmmaker will document the illuminated castles battle with the seventh wave.

Everyone is invited to bring a picnic and/or barbecue and stay on the beach for an evening campfire lit and attended by the Knights of Ardudwy. Join in the campfire session with professional Welsh musicians, singers and fire dancers. Our narrator Siân Miriam will tell the tale of Meirion, the Morfeirch and the Harlech Torc with the help of renowned puppeteer, Owen Davies.

From this day onwards there will be an opportunity to see the Harlech Golden Torc at the castle.

The Autumn Festival will be on the weekend of 27 October 2018

October brings the final confrontation of Meirion and the Morfeirch in the castle, where the plight of our sea becomes clear to the people of Harlech. Under Meirion’s leadership they resolve to heal the damage done and take to care of this precious resource. A celebration is held to confirm this promise.
