Original. Quirky. Daring.
RawFfest is the new youth arts festival for Wales that is fun, innovative and surprising. It is planned and programmed by young people for young people. RawFfest showcases the best of youth arts today. We value the original over the copy, the quirky over the conventional, the daring over the dull.
RawFfest succesfully launched in Newport (Riverfront Theatre) last year, this summer it will take place in Llandudno (Venue Cymru) and Cardiff (Wales Millennium Centre) next year. The festival will run from 17th-20th August 2017. RawFfest is created by young people and for young people (ages 14-25), designed to include inclusive and bilingual groups. We include a wide range of art practices; including theatre, art, music, comedy, spoken word and more.
DANCE GROUPS: WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!
We are hoping to expand our dance works at the festival. We are in the process of beginning to finalise the schedule for the weekend. We have groups coming from all over Wales but we were hoping to touch base with groups closer to Llandudno to see if any youth groups may be interested in getting involved. However groups further afield are also very welcome to become involved.

The styles of dance is always a complete mix up, from physical theatre to ballet, street to clog dance and flash mobs. We are open to all new and exciting dance pieces to perform at this wonderful festival.

If you are not a dance group, we would still love to hear from you. Theatre, music, spoken word, live art, stand up comedy, circus and everything in between. Get in touch.
