***Caerphilly Christmas Market Update***

We have received weather reports from several sources predicting strong gusts of wind for this weekend’s Caerphilly Christmas Market. The wind speeds reported are well beyond the safety limit of the traditional stall layout we originally had planned throughout the high street.

We have been working tirelessly over the past 24 hours to significantly reconfigure the layout in order for the event to still go ahead. The event will now be condensed and the focus will move from the main high street to the Twyn Car Park in the centre of town. Ensuring the safety of our traders, stewards and visitors is paramount to us, whilst still having a wonderful Christmas Market.

All entertainment organised will remain as planned. There will still be a children’s funfair, street entertainment, choirs & bands, a fantastic Farmers’ Market, Castle Court Craft Fair, with over 100 traders selling festive bakes and traditional treats in the town.

Come along and join us for festive cheer, it may be a little windy, but at least it’s not snowing! If there is any change to the situation, we will keep our social media channels and website updated.

Experience the sights, sounds and smells of Caerphilly town and Castle preparing for Christmas with delicious food, the smell of mulled wine, exciting street theatre and over 75 food, craft & gift stalls. Find the perfect Christmas gifts at Caerphilly Christmas Market… whether it’s wine, liqueurs, chocolates, jewellery, or something a little more unusual. Feel festive as you browse the Christmas decorations and seasonal stalls (whilst successfully sampling some tasty food and drink of course!)
