Castle to be 'fire garden'.

A CASTLE will be transformed into a spectacular "fire garden" with blazing sculptures.

Caernarfon Castle will have "flame-tipped trees", and live music when the night sky will be set ablaze at a fiery performance on Friday, September 30 and Saturday, October 1. An evening of stunts, demonstrations and dazzling visual performances around the historic castle has been arranged by Welsh Government body Cadw, partnered by Walk the Plank, Galeri Caernarfon and Gwynedd Council - one of a series of themed events at Cadw sites during Wales's Year of Adventure.

Caernarfon Alight will also see the waterfront brought to life with a torch procession and live music performance.

Paying visitors will also get the chance to explore the castle "fire garden" to see fiery sculptures, flame-tipped trees and "exploding colossal art sculptures".

Cabinet Secretary for Economy and Infrastructure, Ken Skates said: "Wales's Year of Adventure has seen a packed programme of exciting events held across our historic sites. Caernarfon Alight is another exciting first for us." Caernarfon Alight will start when Mr Wilson's Second Liners Street Band lead a torch lit procession from Galeri at sunset, down to the river in time to see the live music performance at the waterfront and a fiery show at the Slate Quay. Ticket holders can then explore Caernarfon Castle's fire garden.

Tickets from Galeri, from PS5.00 for a child entry and up to PS22.00 for a family ticket. A limited number of tickets will be available on the door of Caernarfon Castle.

Caernarfon Alight will see 'fire trees' and much more over two days of spectacle
