Simon Gale, Director of Prosperity and Development at Rhondda Cynon Taf Council, said: “We are so pleased to see the return of our What’s On RCT events programme.

“It has been a difficult few years and we are looking forward to bringing people together in beautiful destinations such as Ynysangharad War Memorial Park and Aberdare Park and our town centres, for events.

“We really do have something for everyone, from the dinosaurs and land train at Aberdare Festival to the food-lovers’ paradise that is the Big Welsh Bite.

“As well as being a great way for us to bring our communities together and celebrate life in Rhondda Cynon Taf, it’s also a chance for us to showcase our county borough to a wider audience, attracting visitors from further afield to spend time here and explore.”
