Inspired by an Italian Piazza, this picturesque hub of Portmeirion is the real heart of Festival No.6. It’s possibly the most surreal of all our venues. Playing host to brilliant pop-up street theatre, ground-breaking poets and spoken word, wonderful speakers and some brilliant troubadours, including the house band Gypsies of Bohemia. In previous years we have welcomed John Cooper Clarke, the country’s best harpist Catrin Finch, Johnny Vegas, Steve Coogan and many more. The Central Piazza also hosts the finale of the Carnival No.6 on the Sunday afternoon of the festival.
