Organised by Ymlaen Llanelli and supported by Llanelli Town Council, the highly-anticipated event will begin with the Armed Forces Day parade led by Llanelli Veterans Association. The parade will fall in at Spring Gardens at 11am and march to the Vaughan Street stage, where a drumhead service will take place until 12pm.
Then, kicking off the 80s antics, replicas of the A-Team Van and the General Lee from the Dukes of Hazard will cruise into Stepney Square with style at 12pm. The live music line-up from 2pm until 7:30pm will see iconic 80s hits played by the Thrillionaires, tributes to Annie Lennox, Michael Jackson and Madonna, with Sunshine Cab set to headline the show.
Street food vendors and market stalls will line the streets, making sure everyone gets their fill of festival food, sweet treats and alcohol. The event will also see free parking in all council-owned town centre car parks.
Chair of Ymlaen Llanelli BID, Lesley Richards, is raring to go for the event: “It’s amazing to have Llanelli 80s Festival back after nearly three years – this is a lot of people’s favourite event and there’s always loads of people dressed up for the occasion. Our pubs and clubs are also joining in on the fun with some follow-up events once our main show is done, so it’s bound to be a busy night in Llanelli town centre!”
Evening entertainment from businesses includes live music, karaoke, deals on drinks and more all across the town centre, with venues including Hwyl, the York Palace, EJ’s Bar, Llanelly House, Marzano’s, the Kilkenny Cat, Ruby’s Bar, the New Drovers and the Met Bar.
