The South Wales Uilleann Pipers are pleased to announce our 2018 tionol!

Piping at the Old Bridge
The 9th South Wales Tionol
September 7th/8th 2018
Pontypridd

With Special Guests
Mikie Smyth (uilleann pipes)
Fionnán Mac Gabhann (uilleann pipes)
Mikey Kenney (fiddle)

Highlights include:

- Piping instruction (beginner and improver levels)
- Fiddle instruction (beginner and improver levels)

The Tionol will be based in and around the Pontypridd Museum, a restored Baptist chapel dating from 1861. The chapel sits on the banks of River Taf at the foot of Pontypridd's 'Old Bridge' which, when first completed in 1756, was the longest single span bridge in Europe.

Wish I'd made it over to the 2017 one, but I was ill with a nasty, fluey cold at the time. I'll hope to keep healthy for this one. It's a fantastic gathering.

The tionol is getting closer, so we thought it a good time to suggest possible accomodations options for people attending.

1) Heritage Park Hotel, Pontypridd - The hotel is about a 5 minute drive/taxi ride from the museum where the tionol will be held. The hotel has agreed a discount for people attending the event. Just call the reservations desk at 01443 687057 (rather than go through the website) and mention that you are there for the Irish bagpipes festival and they will give you a reduced rate.

2) Blueberry Inn, Pontypridd - The inn is a small boutique hotel in the centre of Pontypridd, walking distance from the museum where the tionol will be held.

3) Premier Inn, Llantrisant - Discount hotel approximately 6 miles (20 minute drive) from Pontypridd.

There are also a small number of guest houses, B&Bs and AirBnB options within a couple of miles of Pontypridd which can be accessed via various online booking websites.

Please PM me if you have any questions.

A lovely weekend in South Wales.
