      The Clwydian Range Tourism Group spring meeting is on Friday the 16th March. The theme is the MythFest project. Dafydd Elis-Thomas AM Minister for Culture, Tourism and Sport will be launching MythFest. We will then run a workshop where members can start putting itinerary suggestions together that will tempt families to choose North East Wales for their holiday. We are inviting tourism businesses to this meeting.

      We invite you to:

      • be an attendee; 
      • bring your pop up and exhibit or, 
      • if you can’t come, drop some leaflets off for us to circulate. 
      • Members of the Clwydian Range Tourism Group can attend for free (£50 annual membership), non-members are charged £15 to attend (£20 if you’re exhibiting) this includes lunch and refreshments (you can get this back if you join!).  

        Please click here if you wish to attend or exhibit at the CRTG MythFest meeting and email us too if you wish to exhibit.

      The membership fees enable us to match fund and run projects suggested by members that benefit us all. 

      Members of the CRTG are also working with North Wales Tourism (GoNorthWales) and VisitWales to try to increase the exposure of our area in marketing media - working to strengthen our destination profile.

      We have so much to offer as a tourism destination and this is an opportunity to shout about it.

      The Clwydian Range Tourism Group CRTG has been awarded funding from VisitWales - Welsh Government, Tourism Product Innovation Fund - to develop a family event next year called MythFest which celebrates Wales Year of Legends and Year of the Sea. 

      This funding is allowing us to develop a product to attract more visitors. It will also help us to package ideas and holiday itineraries. We can then use these on our websites and social media, share to our databases and encourage people to visit and stay. We are focusing on families who wish to have a quality, fun-filled, yet mindful and inspiring holiday experience.
