Whats on in Pembrokeshire: October
Pembrokeshire has been popular with families for years, but this October half-term the Welsh county pulls out all the stops. From beer festivals for the adults to spooktacular Halloween proceedings in a traditional castle for all, it is a great month to visit Pembrokeshire.
Tenby Beer festival
For those staying in self-catering Tenby cottages this month, this first event is even in walking distance! The Tenby Beer Festival returns for its second year at De Valence Pavilion over the 10th and 11th October, boasting ales from all over Wales for visitors to try. There will be a hog roast and live music to add to the jolly atmosphere and plenty of ciders available too!
West Wales Wool Show
Now in its third year, the West Wales Wool Show has become so popular that it has had to be held across two venues in Narberth. Covering spinning, dyeing, weaving, knitting, crochet and felt, they have every wool-based activity covered. Perfect for picking up early Christmas presents and souvenirs of time spent in countryside Pembrokeshire cottages as there will be over 50 stall holders coming from right across Wales to exhibit their work and products. Taking place on the 11th October from 10am until 4pm, admission is free and it is sure to make for a great day out for all.
Spooky Halloween Week!
Finally, what better location to celebrate Halloween is there than a medieval castle? As Cilgerran Castle opens its doors to all ghosts and ghouls, every soul will be wanting a piece of the Spooky Halloween spirit, and there will be a free scary trail to enjoy around the castle on top of a great pumpkin carving competition. Open from 10am until 5pm, this event will be taking place from the 25th until the 31st October to have all of your half-term plans sorted. See the National Trust website for admission details and further information.
