Don’t miss Ystrad Mynach Festive Fayre and the return of Bargoed Ice Rink
Get in the Christmas spirit as our festive fun in Caerphilly kicks off this weekend!

Wrap up warm and get ready for the Christmas season to begin as the Ystrad Mynach Festive Fayre comes to town on Saturday 16 November from 9am until 5pm.

Christmas shoppers will see the town centre bustling with over 30 festive stalls selling a huge variety of food and craft products. Beautiful gifts from Christmas decorations and jewellery to tasty bakes and traditional festive treats will give you the perfect opportunity to start your Christmas shopping early.

As well as shopping, Ystrad Mynach Festive Fayre will bring Christmas sparkle throughout the town centre with live music from local schools, choirs and bands, as well as a Santa’s Grotto in Siloh Church (£1.50pp, 10am-1pm and 2pm-4.40pm), and a few small children’s funfair rides will be operating along with festive characters roaming the event to keep the whole family entertained.

Don’t miss the Christmas Light Switch On, which will take place at the end of the event!

Bargoed’s Ice Rink will return for a fun five day stint this year, from Wednesday 20 November to Sunday 24 November.

Visitors are advised to wrap up warm and be sure to not miss out on this special once-a-year attraction!

The ice rink will be open from 10am until 7pm daily and will operate in half hourly slots throughout the day. Admission is £3 per person, and the minimum age is 3 years, with 3 to 7 year olds having to be accompanied by an adult. No pre-booking is available for this event so visitors are urged to arrive early.
