Llanfyllin Workhouse has successfully met the threshold needed to hold its long awaited Workhouse Party event after a six year hiatus.

A bid to host a new instalment of the ‘Workhouse Party’ at Llanfyllin Workhouse will go ahead as the venue has managed to sell over 150 tickets for the weekend event.

After initial fears that that the party would have to be scaled down or cancelled entirely if not enough tickets were purchased during the planning stages, the organisers made a plea via social media for anyone who was planning on attending to order their tickets before June 3.




While there are still tickets on offer, Llanfyllin Workhouse announced they had successfully passed the required threshold of sales for the event to go ahead as planed.

Speaking on social media, a spokesperson for the workhouse said: “In great news, we’ve made our threshold for going ahead.

“We’ve still got some more tickets to sell so please come and join us. We’ve got some amazing bands and amazing DJ’s. Come and be part of our tribe. Let’s make this happen.”

Described as “a fabulously small and cosy, family friendly event”, the weekend will be marking 20 years since Workhouse Party began when it returns on June 21, featuring music, workshops, dancing, camping, lagers, ciders, great food, and scenery to enjoy over three Welsh summer days.

The Workhouse Party is scheduled to be held from June 21 to June 23.
