Big Cheese 2011

July 30-31st
Caerphilly Castle

With the countdown to the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games underway, the heart of the castle will present two days of arts activities and performances as part of the Cauldrons and Furnaces project for the Cultural Olympiad in Wales.

This year’s Big Cheese will also see a celebration of poetry and sculpture, film, dance, music, drama, and more- created by the people of Caerphilly County Borough in a festival of the wealth of vibrancy and culture of this region of South East Wales.
Organised through Caerphilly Arts Development and incorporating work from schools, colleges and community groups, this event is just one of many events organized to celebrate Caerphilly’s cultural life.

There will be performances from the prestigious Caerphilly Youth Theatre, the illustrious Community Chorus, local dance troupes and samba bands as well as the premiere of our Castle inspired film project amongst others. You can also get involved in textile arts and ceramics workshops as well as carnival workshops where you can make flags, banners and masks for the carnival procession, all inspired by the incredible monument that is Caerphilly Castle.
