Look through the calendar to see what is going on in and around the Blaenavon area.
The events listed are no more than 1 hours drive from the World Heritage Site so why not use Oakfield B&B as your base?
Hopefully there is something for everyone!

Betty Blue Eyes – Concept Players @ Abergavenny Borough Theatre
Mar 12 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm

Betty Blue EyesConcept Players present “Betty Blue Eyes”

This musical will be performed by the Concept Players at Abergavenny’s Borough Theatre 12th – 14th March.

Based on the film ‘A Private Function’, written by Alan Bennett. A musical romp set around the impending wedding celebrations of young Princess Elizabeth to the dashing Philip Mountbatten in 1947. But these are desperate times where rationing is even worse than it had been in the war. And desperate times call for desperate measures! Enter the mild chiropodist Gilbert Chilvers and his social-climbing wife Joyce. When they are snubbed one too many times by the local establishment, Gilbert takes matters into his own hands and kidnaps a pig from the local bigwigs who were planning a very exclusive private function where the pig was to play a starring role – on several plates! Needless-to-say keeping a pig quiet in a suburban street proves rather difficult and hilarity ensues.
