It’s officially winter – now what can the Caerleon Festival do to help?

Well Christmas may come but once a year, but at least it is coming early to Caerleon thanks to the Caerleon Festival and its Community Partners.

On Saturday 12th December it begins – CHRISTMAS IN CAERLEON – so much to do in so little time:

  • At 10 am the Festival Farmers Market opens in the Town Hall with delicious delicacies from near and afar, closing at 4pm.
  • At 11 am the Saturnalia celebrations start in the National Roman Legion Museum, closing at 4pm.
  • At 12 noon the Christmas Fayre commences at the Charles Williams C in W Primary School, closing at 3pm.
  • At 4 pm Santa Claus arrives at the Common and confirms ‘Christmas Is Here!’
  • At 4.30 pm the joyful sound of Carols on The Common with the Caerleon Comprehensive School Brass Band, ending at 6pm.
  • At 7.30 pm Belshazzar’s Feast will delight an audience in the Town Hall with music and songs spiced with their own special humour.  If you haven’t seen the duo before you are in for a rare treat.  Those that have already know this. 

There follows a pause in the festivities until Friday 18th December when everyone is welcome to The Caerleon Arts Festival Christmas Ball at the Caerleon Rugby Club to be entertained by the mighty Rogora Khart band assisted by Romany Bob’s Big Fat Gypsy Disco.  Dancing and merriment will continue throughout the evening until exhaustion overtakes, or permitted hours end, whichever is the sooner.

From then until the New Year you will just have to amuse yourselves.   

So FESTIVE GREETINGS to One and All (and Bob Cratchit too!)

Tim Davidson, Festival Chairman and Secret Santa
