Caerphilly’s Big Cheese Festival and a host of other events across the county borough have been cancelled because of Covid-19.
As well as the Big Cheese, which was due to be held between July 24 and 26, organisers Caerphilly County Borough Council have also cancelled Risca’s Beach Party due to be held during the last week of May. These will not be rearranged.
Caerphilly Food Festival has also been postponed, for now, with hopes that it may still go ahead.
The council said it had taken the decision following advice from Public Health Wales.
In a statement the local authority said: “We have also made the decision to postpone the Caerphilly Food Festival which was due to take place on Saturday May 2.
“We will try our best to rearrange the event for a future date and we will keep you informed of this as and when we can.”
