Join us this weekend at Caerphilly’s Christmas Market

Caerphilly Christmas Market will descend on Caerphilly town centre this weekend.

This magical 2-day market is a firm favourite both within Wales and beyond.

Experience the sights, sounds and smells of a town and castle preparing for Christmas with traditional funfair rides, the smell of mulled wine, street entertainment and food, craft and gift stalls on Saturday 7th December (9am to 5pm) and Sunday 8th December (9am to 4pm).

Christmas shoppers will be overjoyed with over 100 festive stalls, selling a huge variety of delicious treats to delight the foodies, and an array of crafts, jewellery, decorations and the perfect stocking fillers.

There will also be a farmers market in the Twyn Community Centre and craft fairs at the Cenotaph and Castle Court Shopping Centre, complimenting the town’s mixture of independent & high street stores.

Additionally, a Christmas ice rink at Caerphilly Castle will be available for people to enjoy on both Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 9pm. Pre-booking online is strongly advised at Tickets are priced at £6.50 for children under 14, £9.00 for adults and £27.00 for families (two adults and two children).

While enjoying the festive fun, if you are interested in coming along to our River of Light Lantern Parade in Caerphilly town centre on Thursday 19th December, we have a free lantern workshop taking place in Wesley Methodist Church, suitable for the whole family on Saturday 7th December from 10am to 5pm. Take a break from shopping and release your creative abilities!

If you are interested in making a lantern but cannot make this workshop, Caerphilly Leisure Centre are holding two sessions the following weekend, on Saturday 14th December and Sunday 15th December, both from 10am to 5pm.
