The Flower Festival is now in its 10th year. Since the inaugural 2006 event it has developed into one of Caerphilly Town Council’s annual events, forming an important date in the calendar for the town centre, its churches and societies.
The event comprises of a core group of churches, located around the town centre, which have joined forces to provide a fantastic flower festival with impressive floral displays highlighting the spectacular buildings in which they are held. The festival has expanded each year with nine churches and ten societies now participating, helping them to open their doors and promote their venues and services. The Malcolm Uphill, Wetherspoons is also a keen participant involved in the Flower Festival.
The event takes place on the 24th-26th June in local churches, Caerphilly Library and Twyn Community Centre.
The churches are accessible via a courtesy bus on Satruday and Sunday, which offers visitors a birds eye view of the area including the popular historic monument, Caerphilly Castle. The hop on hop off service has proved a real hit with people over the years and now forms an attraction in itself, taking visitors up to all the participating venues. This year Caerphilly Players will offer commentary on local points of interest and information on the area.
The benefit of this event is not only the great level of involvement from the churches and societies, but also Caerphilly town centre itself, which provides a shopping experience for visitors. And with Caerphilly Castle at the heart of the festival, there are plenty of additional activities to add to a great day out!
