The Northern Eye 2019

The Northern Eye Photography Festival is a collaboration between the Oriel Colwyn photography gallery and Aberystwyth's The Eye Festival.

Both festivals are biennial and hosted on alternate years to ensure an annual celebration of photography takes place in mid or north Wales.

Building on the huge success of the inaugural Northern Eye in 2017, the festival is returning in October to bring an all-new set of outstanding photographers, speakers and exhibitions to the North Wales coastal town of Colwyn Bay.

This honouring of photography is centred around a core speakers weekend, which takes place in Theatr Colwyn on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th October.

The two-week fringe festival will also be returning, running either side of the weekend’s heart. The fringe pops up again across the town to host a diverse range of free exhibitions, workshops and events for all.

More fringe exhibitions and events will be announced shortly.
