What is Lleswyl?

Lleswyl is the Festival-at-Home experience established to support the wellbeing of those who normally cannot attend live gigs because of chronic illness, disability, or loneliness. Our aim is to provide an experience that everyone can share: an uplifting, fun and joyous Festival evening with the company of family, friends, and neighbours! Music is the catalyst that creates this  wellbeing experience. Lleswyl is free to all.

Lleswyl (Wellbeing Festival) is the only free, livestreamed festival bringing the joy of music and connection to those for whom there will be no ‘new normal’, because of illness.

In 2021, during lockdown, Daring to Dream launched Lleswyl (our flagship Wellbeing Festival) as a free, inclusive at-home experience, bringing a dynamic and engaging evening of cross-generational live music into the homes of those who would benefit the most in Wales.

Hosted by Sian Lloyd, Jason Harrold and Tumi Williams, Lleswyl 2023 will feature Afro Cluster, the Welsh Ballroom Community, Ify Iwobi Live Band, Emilie Parry-Williams & Thomas Mottershead, SoulLotta Funk, the ‘Hear our Voices’ band of Maddie Jones, Cat Razzell and Tobias Robertson and Alli Gemini & Gabrielle Ebbens.

Featured choirs will include the ICU Liberty Singers and Tenovus Cancer Care & Forget-Me-Not-Chorus choirs.

Through inspirational patients and the charities who support them, Lleswyl 2023 will shine a light on the following chronic illnesses and conditions: Neurological, Cardiovascular, Renal, Cancer, Invisible illnesses such as lupus, arthritis, long covid. We’ll also reach out to the deaf community with BSL interpretation.

To create the full Festival-at-Home experience, we are building links to Festival sharing food recipes. Order a Lleswyl 2023 T-shirt, put on your festival make up. We are creating our very own Lleswyl festival poster for you, your children, your friends to colour digitally or on paper and post online or put on your fridge or windows of your homes.

People, clothes, makeup, food, music together set the mood. We encourage you to post your selfies on social media on the night for the Festival comperes to see, share, and comment on.
