Machynlleth

It was in Machynlleth that the Welsh rebel leader Owain Glyndwr established his Welsh Parliament in 1404. It therefore has some entitlement to the claim  'Ancient Capital of Wales'. One of the earliest written references of Machynlleth is the Royal Charter of 1291, granted by Edward I to Owen de la Pole, the Lord of Powys. This Charter allowed Machynlleth to hold a market every Wednesday and two fairs a year, a tradition that continues to this day.

This historic town boasts a number of interesting buldings in addition to Owain Glyndwr's Parliament building. Royal House which stands on the main through road is a great example of a mediaeval house.  However, the name " Royal House" is  belived to be associated with Charles I staying there in 1643.

Held every year in early May is the Machynlleth Comedy Festival. This Comedy Festival has quickly gained a reputation as a hidden gem. The town is known for its quirky venues, which helps to make it popular with both the acts and audience alike.

“A welcome break from the norm... it boasts the kind of top-quality lineup that's beyond many of its rivals.” The Guardian|

“A small but perfectly formed antidote to some of the more sprawling comedy festivals” The Independent
