Caerleon Festival

Christmas in Caerleon

Congratulations to everyone involved.  A great team effort resulted in a successful Farmers’ Market, the centrepiece of the “Christmas in Caerleon” celebrations.

Exhibitors braved frosty conditions on Saturday and the array of delights on display satisfied a procession of punters that gathered momentum as the day unfolded. Santa Claus dispensed good cheer whilst seemingly stalked by a reindeer.

It was great to meet the man himself who took time out of his busy schedule to visit other sites of celebration – The Roman Museum and Baths, and of course Christmas Carols on the Common under the sparkling Christmas tree.

A special thank you to Lorraine and Henry for organising the event including carols in the Town Hall.  Well done!

A big thank you goes to our volunteers including Barbara for organising a splendid raffle.

 

Appreciation goes to our partners in “Christmas in Caerleon” – the Caerleon Tourism Forum, the Museum and Baths, councillors, sponsors and supporters.
