Events in Swansea: children & families

Clyne in Bloom

Location: Clyne gardens - show a couple of minutes by car along the sea front from our bed and breakfast.

May 2017

Clyne in Bloom is celebrated every year during May when the award winning rhododendrons and azaleas of Clyne Gardens are in full bloom and at their most magnificent. As a plant lover this is one place I always reccommend. But it is also good for all the family as there is space to play, trees to climb, a brook to play pooh sticks and ducklings on the pond.

Celebrate Armed Forces Day 2018 at the Wales Airshow!

 

Every year Armed Forces Day celebrates the contributions made to our country by those who serve and have served in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces. This year Armed Forces day falls during the Wales Airshow, so a special celebration is planned on Saturday 30 June from 10.30am on Mumbles Road.

 

With the joint celebrations of Wales’ largest free event, Armed Forces Day and the centenary of the RAF, it’s sure to be a special occasion. There will be a large display of military stands and ground assets and ‘come and try it’ activities. There will also be a stage with military themed entertainment followed by the flag raising ceremony, accompanied by a piper and bugler. From currently serving troops to Service families and from veterans to cadets, come and show your support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community.
