Good to Go

Many businesses accross the Vale have been working hard to welcome you back safely. Look out for the 'Good to Go' accreditation that businesses have achieved to demonstrate that they have reached the standard required to make sure their premises are safe.

EVENTS IN THE VALE

We are seeing the gradual return of Events to the Vale. See our Event pages for news of events as and when they have been given approval to be held.


The Welsh Government has issued guidance for outdoor organised gatherings and events. From Monday 7 June, outdoor organised events such as concerts, festivals and sporting events were able to resume - with a capacities of 4,000 standing and 10,000 seated.

The health and safety of the audience, staff and performers is always our top priority, so if you are thinking of organising an event in the Vale of Glamorgan this year, please contact our Events Officer before putting any plans in place.

Events Officer email: sejones@valeofglamorgan.gov.uk

Llantwit Major & the Glamorgan Heritage Coast
St Illtud established a Church and place of learning in #LlantwitMajor in 500AD. The imposing 11th century Church now standing on this site has been called the Westminster of Wales. At the western end stands the Galilee Chapel which houses an exhibition of Celtic crosses and carved stones - the finest collection outside of the National Museum of Wales. A most peaceful and serene place to visit as you discover the #GlamorganHeritageCoast

Cosmeston Country Park has had a makeover, we hope you enjoy it. Including, new Curiosity Trail, exciting natural play equipment, new benches and much more 🦆🦋 Look out for the Curiosity Trail for kids, the totem listening point and match-finder game hidden in the woods.... (Did you know, Pipistrelle Bats 🦇 are so small they could fit inside a matchbox. One bat can eat 3,000 tiny insects in just one night. That’s the equivalent of a small child eating 60 roast dinners a day!!) 😳 To learn about this and much more, grab the tribe and head on down to Cosmeston Country Park this summer! 🌞 #visitthevale #visitwales #cosmestonlakes #cosmestoncountrypark #visitsouthwales #southwales #summerholidays
