Penarth’s annual street-food festival “Picnic Penarth” is to take over the whole of Station Approach when it’s staged next month – on April 16th and 18th 2016.
Street-food vendors from all over South Wales are lining up to take part in this year’s Picnic Penarth which is being staged much earlier in the year than last year’s inaugural Picnic event
Planned for next month’s event is plenty of live music and a full bar running throughout the weekend complete with under-cover seating just in case there are any April showers around.
The organisers of last September’s Picnic Penarth event were “overwhelmed by the response” – and after taking on board feedback from attendees, local businesses and the
wider community, it’s been decided to grow the size of this year’s event.
With the co-operation of Arriva Trains Wales and businesses around Station Approach, a road closure will be in place from the junction of Station Approach and Victoria Road from 18:00 on Friday 15th April and 8pm on Sunday 17th April. Stewards will be in attendance from 08:00 on Friday 15th April to direct drivers to alternative parking and to assist train passengers accessing the station.
The event was first established last year on a pilot basis with total funding of approximately £10,000 from Vale of Glamorgan Council, the Welsh Government and from Penarth Town Council which also contributes organisational staffing.
Details of the vendors taking part, as well as timings and music, will be announced in the coming weeks via social media and the Penarth Town Council website which is at http://www.picnicpenarth.wales.
