Rainy weather won't stop indoor fun
PLENTY of indoor fun has been arranged across the city to make sure the rain doesn't dampen spirits for the rest of the annual school summer holidays.
Swansea Council is behind a range of activities over the next few weeks that will help keep boredom at bay while the weather forecasts make for depressing viewing.
Some of the fun includes the Rainforest Roadshows taking place at Plantasia from August 24 to August 26. The event will allow visitors to learn all about the world's rainforests and will feature scorpions, tarantulas, stick insects and tribal artefacts. Shows will be held on each of the three days at 10.30am, noon, 2pm and 3.15pm.
A whole host of activities is also available in the Active Swansea community leisure centres at Penlan, Penyrheol, Morriston, Cefn Hengoed, Pentrehafod and Bishopston. The fun includes climbing walls, football challenges, kayaking and inflatable pirates.
Car fans may also fancy paying a visit to Swansea Museum in the city's Maritime Quarter. The Road Ahead exhibition at the attraction tells the story of the motor vehicle from ancient to modern times and includes references to fossil fuels, Sir Stirling Moss and the Ford Motor Company.
Story time sessions and other activities have also been arranged at Swansea's network of community libraries.
Sian Davies, of Swansea Council's Marketing Team, said: "The weather in this area can be very unpredictable and this is why it's so important that we have a significant number of indoor activities and events during the summer holidays.
"Plantasia and our libraries are ideal examples of places that, regardless of the weather, always have a selection of events arranged to entertain people.
"I'd urge anyone who's looking for something to do to have a look at our dedicated holiday activity website."
