It's the end of October and the shops are starting to fill with
festive offerings. So, over the next couple of weeks, we'll
look ahead to some of the events that are happening in Southern
Wales over the festive period. Today it's Caerphilly's
Medieval Christmas Fayre:
Caerphilly Medieval Christmas
7 - 8 December 2013
Caerphilly's Medieval Christmas Fayre returns once again this year
on Saturday 7th & 8th December. Once a traditional market town,
Caerphilly returns to its days of old with an eclectic mix of
medieval entertainment, food and drink, and an abundance of stalls
selling unusual Christmas gifts such as medieval replica,
traditional crafts, jewellery and Christmas decorations.
Listen to seasonal period music and laugh at the hilarious frolics
of the Jester, tricks of the medieval magicians and re-enactments
from the knights, but watch out for the medieval beggars who will
be roaming the market and chatting to visitors!
Caerphilly Castle is at the heart of the fayre, which is open to
visitors all weekend; entry fee with even more market stalls,
medieval entertainment and re-enactments within its walls

This is New York City last December as they break the world record
for the largest gathering of Elves. Never one to shirk a
challenge, the market town of Bridgend is now taking on the Big
Apple in a bid to snatch the record from their grasp.
607 is the number to beat and on Saturday 11 December organisers
hope to attract enough Elves to the town to enter the record
books. Organisers will provide the hat, you provide the red
or green jumper.
As well as the world record attempt there will be loads of other
activities going on including arts and crafts, Christmas baking and
Elf opening of the Bridgend Christmas Market. See you there!
