Next HRH Prog Festival Takes Place in Wales

Following the success of the inaugural HRH Prog festival at the Magna Centre in Rotherham last weekend, the second edition has been announced – at a new location.

HRH Prog 2 will take place at Havan y Mor, Pwhelli, North Wales, on March 20-23 next year.

And Chic Festivals boss Jonni Davis promises the change of site offers a better experience for prog fans.

He explains: “I’m keeping it all on one big stage with huge production – but there will be a second, unplugged, stage.

“The next thing to say is that the event will be warmer. It’s a private site with better accommodation options and better catering – there’s an a la carte restaurant, Papa John’s Pizza who deliver, Burger King, Starbucks and fish and chips. Everything is within walking distance too.”

Accommodation options include self-catering lodges and apartments, with shops, cash machines and bars offering real ales. Everything is packed into a seafront location not far from Portmeirion, where cult TV show The Prisoner was filmed.

“We’re extending the length of the experience too,” says Davis. “We’ll start with a Thursday night pre-party from 5pm until 1pm, including a bit of a laugh with prog quiz and bingo.

“There’s loads of extra-curricular things to do as well, including go-karts, archery, crazy golf, laser quest. All good stuff – and that’s before any of the bands have been announced.”

“HRH Prog had a great start in Rotherham. I’m determined to make HRH Prog 2 even better; a real full-on experience.”
