Just confirmed that we will be attending the Cardiff Country Fair in Cardiff Castle at the end of September. The event is open from 10.00am to 6.00pm on Saturday and Sunday 28th and 29th September. Our FelinFach products will be there - Welsh wool blankets, handmade throws and cushions and other soft furnishings.
This is a new event for Cardiff, bringing agriculture and countryside activities right to the heart of the city. The fair will take place every other year alternating with the Great British Cheese Festival which will be back in September 2014.
The organiser of the event, Cardiff City Council, is aiming to bring the countryside to the city centre with this brand new event that will showcase the essence of rural Wales and celebrate the best of farming, food and the countryside from across the UK. In the castle grounds, there is The Best of British produce tent which will showcase the best products and crafts made by small producers from Wales and Great Britain.
Show highlights include a tented Cheese Village, Best of British produce tent, livestock displays with some of the winners from the Royal Welsh Agricultural Show, The Cardiff Arms Pub and masterclasses in skills such as butchery, bread making, bee keeping and cheese making.
There will also be fun and games for all the family to take part in like cheese skittles, tug of war and the Daffodil Rebuild team who can teach you how to put an entire tractor together in record time!
There will be a comprehensive demonstration and entertainment programme featuring music, farriery, stick making, learning how to fly fish and shows from The Quack Pack ensuring a fantastic day out for visitors of all ages.
Let's hoping for some good weather for the weekend :)
