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.

How to Hide a Lion by Helen Stephens

Taliesin Arts Centre, Swansea University - 25mins walk or a short drive from our guesthouse


Pigtails Productions, Polka Theatre and Oxford Playhouse present 'How to Hide a Lion' by Helen Stephens, directed and adapted by Peter Glanville and with music and songs by Barb Jungr.


When a lion is chased out of town, a little girl, Iris, helps him to find somewhere to hide. Iris embarks on a mission to squash her new friend into a variety of sneaky tight spots, as the misinformed town folk try and track him down. Helen Stephens’ magical book, How to Hide a Lion, comes to life with playful humour, dazzling puppets and jazz.


"Comes to life with a roar." - The Guardian

"Little gem of a production... enchanting mini musical." - Children's Theatre Review

"Staying true to the terrific tale and delightful drawings, with an extra pawful of stagey sprinkles... this makes for a very classy production." - Curious Mum


Babes-in-arms go free. Age recommendation: 3-6
