Multi award winning Crown Hotels and Restaurants have secured a long term catering concession with the castle owners, Monmouthshire County Council, to hold the popular historical events filled with fun, feasting, revelry and music. The Monmouthshire-based group will also run the castle’s popular tea rooms and manage wedding functions at the idyllic Norman-built castle set in 55 acres of wooded parklands.
A full events programme is in place for 2012, including some new events such as the relocation of “Fortress Wales” a multi-period re-enactment event on the early May bank holiday. A full programme of events is listed on <http://www.caldicotcastle.co.uk/>.
To coincide with the start of the new catering contract there will be a “free admission day” on Sunday 1 April.
