The Big Cheese Festival Caerphilly

Set in the shadows of Caerphilly Castle, the second largest Castle in Britain, The Big Cheese festival brings together local and regional Welsh food & drink producers in one of the largest travelling food halls in the country. With a dedicated cheese market featuring quality cheese producers from all over the country.

“The Big Cheese is a FREE event. Opening Friday evening 26th July from 3pm until our spectacular fireworks finale at 10pm. A full programme starts at 11am on Saturday 27th & Sunday 28th July. (Stalls and Food Halls are open Saturday and Sunday only)”

“Entertainment is the life and soul of the festival with live music acts, choirs and dancers. Caerphilly Castle is transformed into a medieval encampment with re-enactment displays and battles.”

“Visit our huge traditional funfair and craft stalls lining the Castle’s moat. Children’s activities are plentiful with animal encounters, crafts, displays and much more.”

This great event is run by Caerphilly Council with the Fun Fair being run by Sayers Amusements.

The Danter family have the pleasure of attending this great event with a number of attractions. The Extreme Ride debuted here when new in 2010, being delivered straight from the factory. It is one of South Wales Permier Fairs now and as such, attracts the top attractions.

EASTNOR RISING

“Lakefest returns to the beauty of Eastnor Deer Park, from August 8th-11th. Since 2011 we’ve been building a music festival for families to enjoy and for 2019 we’re stepping things up a gear. Our promise is to deliver everything our visitors have come to know and love, but with lots of exciting new additions”

“Our vibe will always encompass that feeling of togetherness, and celebrate a return to the roots of what we believe a festival should be”
