Today we explore the vibrancy of the Maindee Festival, our iconic Transporter Bridge with the grace of Apollo and the strength of Hercules, aurochs, birds of paradise and Roman mosaics. 

The Folk of the Footbridge project is a collaboration between the Friends of Newport Museum and Art Gallery and Newport Museums and Heritage Service. 

The project has been made possible through a 15min Heritage Grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Welsh Government and Cadw.
