Hundreds Visit The Big Picnic

Organised by Llantrisant Town Trust, the Big Picnic is now in its second year and welcomed a host of stallholders, entertainers and plenty of visitors on one of the hottest days of the year.

The Castle Green was filled to capacity as families and friends took their picnic baskets, blankets and bottles of prosecco to celebrate this successful community event.

The Big Picnic welcomed 25 stallholders including Gill Fairground Amusements who provided plenty of entertainment for the children.

The free event also saw entertainers giving their time to perform to the enthusiastic crowd. They included Cor y Bryn, Cor Tadau Trisant, RCT Community Band, The Semantics, The Accidentals, Rechoir, Rua, Mike Morgan & Richard Jones and The Unforgiven.

The family fun day also raised £1,100 for the Guildhall Restoration Scheme which has now reached its final phase.

Organiser Dean Powell said: "Llantrisant's Big Picnic was a very successful community event which clearly everyone enjoyed. We were blessed with good weather, plenty of great entertainment and activities which certainly drew the crowds.

"We are very grateful for the kind donations which helped us raise a good amount towards the Guildhall project and have decided to make The Big Picnic an annual event in Llantrisant old town."
