‘All the world’s a stage’ wrote Shakespeare. That certainly applies to us. Anglesey puts on a great performance throughout the year, staging all kinds of festivals and events. Here’s sample. For the full picture and information on specific dates go to: visitanglesey.co.uk Menai Strait Regattas, Beaumaris A fortnight of competition, laced with a great party atmosphere.
