Monmouth's fabulous free music festival ' Monmouth Festival/Gyl Trefynwy ' is celebrating its 30th year this year.
Over the years the nine-day festival has become THE big event for Monmouth ' a celebration of the town and its community, and a chance to see the best of local and national musicians from rock, classical, pop, folk, jazz, ska, punk, world music and beyond.
