VISITORS to Caerphilly Castle will step back in time this summer thanks to Legends Live!

Legends Live! is a brand new programme of fully-immersive events created to bring the characters, stories and magic of Welsh history to life.

Brought to life by the Welsh Government’s historic environment service (Cadw), the project will see Cadw team up with Past Pleasures – the experts behind interpretation at world-class sites such as the Tower of London and Warwick Castle.

Legends Live! will pop up at several Cadw sites this summer including Caerphilly Castle, where visitors will be treated to a five-weekend-long programme of medieval events throughout August and September.

The interactive events will allow visitors to experience Welsh history first-hand, with the opportunity to meet real historic characters and experience everything from epic battle scenes to a dazzling Victorian ball.

This approach to interpretation is a first for Cadw and will be used as a pilot to inform future events at its collection of 128 historic monuments across Wales.

Ken Skates, cabinet secretary for Economy and Infrastructure, said: “Legends Live! is a travelling programme of interpretation events, designed to tell the fascinating, real stories behind Wales’ historic sites.

“Legends Live! will present historic interpretation with a difference –offering fully-immersive and exciting experiences.”
