Caerphilly Medieval Fayre 2010

Looking for somewhere to stock up on ciders, beers and wines this festival season? Then head to Caerphilly where the castle and the town will be transformed into a Medieval Christmas Fayre over the Saturday & Sunday 11th-12th December. Yes I realise there are over 150 other stall holders there but lets face it the booze ones are the more important!
Award-winning cidermaker Denis Gwatkin is pictured with a couple of locals who have been using homeopathic remedies to cure the plague.
Denis will once again be at the show with his ciders and perries, including his Christmas special, Sant-a-Cider, fermented in rum casks and sold in presentation boxes with engraved Gwatkin Cider glasses and spices to mull it yourself.
These plague carriers get everywhere!
Ralph's cider will also be there.
 "You just can't get the staff nowadays!"

Also at the Medieval Fayre will be the Jacobi Brewery of Caio, a rare chance to see their beers this far east.
Other producers closer to home include Wernddu Organics, with their ciders, perries and fantastic award-winning wines.
Last year saw the Untapped Brewery at the Fayre with their bottled beers and the local brewery Celt Experience are also hopping to have a stand at the show.

Caerphilly is easy to reach by train from Cardiff or by bus from Newport.
