Llangollen Pavilion’s Musical History

Set in beautiful countryside, Llangollen Pavilion in north-east Wales hosts Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod, an annual music festival which has seen performances from Status Quo and Pavarotti. This iconic music festival is set in the stunning Clwydian Range & Dee Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is alongside the Llangollen Canal part of the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct World Heritage Site.

The Eisteddfod Committee, who run the event as a charity, were keen to highlight some of the amazing stories from the festival’s 67 year history. We assisted by creating bespoke timber signage which included lecterns, entrance signs and interpretation panels.

We created custom signage to meet the AONB’s design guidelines, producing oak entrance signs and lecterns, complete with profiled headers which beautifully highlighted the festivals’ emblem. To further enhance the crest, we printed the design onto etched zinc plaques; this reprographic process replicates fine designs and intricate fonts, making the emblem more eye-catching (request a sample).

Engaging and inspiring interpretation provides an exciting and memorable learning experience, which is why we printed the client’s artwork on our high quality n-Viro™ graphic panels (Request a sample). They clearly display text and crisply present images, making the interpretation comfortable and easy to read for visitors. In addition, the interpretation will look neat for many years thanks to n-Viro™’s graffiti-resistant, flameproof and UV resilient qualities.

To ensure the signage was safely and securely in place, the Eisteddfod Committee took advantage of our specialist installation service. The lecterns were set into concrete plinths to reduce the risk of theft and the wall-mounted interpretation panels were attached with tough security fixings.
