CALENIG: A Welsh New Year

Following the match, me and Sparky headed into town to check out the ‘Calenig’ celebrations.

Every year Cardiff city Council put on a ‘Winter Wonderland’ on the park near the museum. Basically it is an open air skating rink, plus a bar and a small funfair. For new year the whole are metamorphosis’s with the addition of a huge funfair, more bars and a stage for live bands; the whole thing taking up several streets around the museum/university/City Hall.

We nipped into town first and i bought the 25th anniversary edition of the Damned's 'Black Album' (last CD of the year) , then we had a few pints and wandered around the Calenig site for a few hours. The Calenig goes on until the early hours of New years day, including a massive fireworks display at midnight, but we did not stay there for midnight, we headed back up the valleys to see the New Year in with some mates.
