Christmas is Coming

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:

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

Little Bridgend takes on mighty New York

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!
