Caerphilly town’s annual flower show is to be held this weekend.
The popular event, being held on Saturday and Sunday, will this year take on a 1940s theme to commemorate the 65th anniversary of VE Day.
Now in its fifth year, the Caerphilly Flower Festival brings local churches together with brightly coloured floral displays and exhibitions which are available to view throughout the weekend.
Terry Walton, star of BBC Radio 2’s Jeremy Vine Show will take centre stage at the festival with a traditional 1940s allotment.
This year’s ‘Kid’s Go Wild’ event will feature a chance for youngsters to meet reptiles, tortoises and owls, pot a plant, face painting, bird and plant box making, plant swap, puppetry workshops and the addition of a ’Tea Party’, all of which are free.
There will be a free-to-enter digital photography competition, run with the help of Caerphilly Camera Club, where visitors can capture their favourite part of the Flower Festival, submit the photo and win a prize.
There will also be a free shuttle bus service running throughout the festival with various pick-up and drop-off points around the town centre enabling visitors to see the stunning floral displays at six churches around the town.
