You need to be in Swansea! The school holidays are nearly upon us and to save you any stress whatever the age of your children, we’ve put together a list of all the best things to do in Swansea. And if you don’t have kids, there’s still lots to do in and around the city over the coming months :)
Skate, street and sport fever hits us tomorrow with a fantastic new event in the city centre, Skate, Street and Sport Festival. It’s for all ages and all abilities – skate, scooter, skateboard or BMX. This is a chance to watch the experts, show off your skills or try out something new. The ramps will be placed along Princess Way with stage entertainment from local street dance schools and music from Fast Fuse. A big thanks to all the partners led by Exist Skatepark. And best of all, it’s all free :)
Show your support on Sunday 20 July for the inaugural Swansea Half Marathon. The race is full but you can cheer the supporters at three viewing areas and while we’re on the subject of sport, Active Swansea Leisure Centres start their Holiday Clubs and free swimming. And it’s only 1 month to go until Swansea 2014, IPC Athletics European Championships. Watch young athletes make history – you don’t want to miss this, buy your tickets today. The 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games start on 23 July right through until 3 August and we're showing all the games live on Swansea's Big Screen.
Get in there early and book your tickets to this year’s Outdoor Theatre – there’s Alice Through the Looking Glass 6 & 7 August; the Tempest also on 6 & 7 August and Jazz at the Castle on 8 August. We’re running a fab competition with Cover to Cover in Mumbles when you buy your ticket in advance for Alice plus special ticket offers. Katherine Jenkins is also live in Singleton Park on 27 July. Tickets are still available.
All our venues are open as usual during the summer holidays with extra activities taking place.
Don’t forget you may be eligible for a PTL card which will provide discount to many events and attractions in Swansea
