The Thai Temple celebrates the Thai New Year each April. The event is always crowded with people travelling from away as Wales. A programme of events usually includes Thai Dancing; Kick-boxing; Thai music; Miss Thailand contest.
There are also many stalls with Thai curiosities and authentic cuisine available and well patronised.
The event this year has added poignancy with many paying their own tribute to His Late Majesty, King Bhumibol Adulyadej, especially if they had not had the opportunity of doing so in the Grand Palace in Bangkok. This year enjoyed beautiful spring weather with masses of blossom, lending the celebrations a relaxed atmosphere.
Good weather gives an early opportunity to just sit in peaceful surroundings and enjoy a wonderful spring day.
