Refreshed. Rejuvenated. Rediscovered
Rediscover The Big Cheese! This year’s new look festival will have a new layout and new feel with Street Food Vendors, Live Lounge Bar Area, THREE Huge Food Halls and Live Cookery Demonstrations.
Caerphilly Castle, the second largest Castle in Britain still remains the star of the festival with free entry all weekend. With an entertainment program that’ll stretch from morning until evening, there’ll be medieval re-enactments within the Castle grounds, live music and a packed program in The Great Hall. The Big Cheese Festival brings together local and regional Welsh food & drink producers in three massive food halls, possibly the largest in the country. With a dedicated cheese market featuring quality cheese producers from all over the country, this really is a food lovers paradise.
Exciting new street food vendors will be dotted around the site with show cooking and some unusual and exotic tastes. From noodles to crepes, there’s a feast to be had! There’ll also be some alternative street food vendors.
A full list of food & drink producers and street food vendors who are attending this year's Big Cheese will be available to view in the lead up to the festival.
