Fun in the sun: Here are some cracking ideas for your half-term holiday

Swansea Council's A Summer to Enjoy brochure

WITH summer and the school half-term on their way, Swansea Council has launched its Summer to Enjoy drive to highlight ideas for things to see and do.

Half-term runs from May 29-June 2.

Council cabinet member Robert Francis-Davies said: “With holidays on the horizon, there’s no better time to discover what’s on offer in Swansea Bay.”

Council-managed outdoor attractions such as Blackpill Lido – with paddling pool and water features, the Singleton Park crazy golf and boating lake and a fellow crazy golf course at Southend Gardens are already proving popular this season.

Meanwhile, the Swansea Bay Rider land train offers a scenic and memorable trip along the prom.

The historic Oystermouth Castle boasts stunning views, hosts fun events and offers volunteer opportunities.

The council also manages a number of free-entry cultural venues that run family-friendly events at weekends and throughout the school holidays.

They include the city centre Glynn Vivian Art Gallery, where the popular His Dark Materials exhibition has been extended until July.

The Dylan Thomas Centre plans to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Under Milk Wood’s first full stage performance this half-term.

Nearby is the free-entry Swansea Museum. Half-term and the summer are also good time to visit the council’s libraries.

There are many other free and low-cost ways to enjoy Swansea’s great outdoors. The area is home to top-quality parks and beaches, including three with blue flag status.

Summer events – alongside the council’s attractions – are highlighted in the Summer to Enjoy printed brochure, available to pick up free at many city locations.

The city’s summer of entertainment includes a number of high-profile events. They include Swansea International Jazz Festival, The Wales Air Show, The Hollywood Vampires at Swansea Arena, The World Triathlon Para Series and IRONMAN 70.3 Swansea, outdoor theatre at Oystermouth Castle and Madness, the Ministry of Sound Classical, Tom Grennan, Sam Ryder and dance festival Escape at Singleton Park.
