Blackwood Beach Party 2023

Caerphilly County Borough Council and Blackwood Town Council are pleased to announce that Blackwood Beach Party is coming to town! On Saturday 8th July, Blackwood High Street will be transformed into an urban beach party with plentiful sand, deckchairs and buckets and spades to keep the whole family entertained. A number of funfair rides will bring life to the one end of the high street with stalls, attractions and a giant beach taking over the other end! Blackwood Town Council will also be arranging their feature stage with a full entertainment programme all day incorporating local singers, bands and dance acts.

Blackwood Town Centre will be a hive of activity, boosting footfall to the local retailers and hospitality venues so please get the date in the diary!

Blackwood Town Council are funding the event with Caerphilly Events Team organising it.
