Christmas. It’s a great opportunity to unwind. To spend some quality time with the family. To bring the imaginations of our children to life. And hopefully, to celebrate another great year with some festive cheer.
We’ll certainly be doing that in Swansea Bay. 2014 has been a fantastic year for us. Here’s a guide to a handful of the events taking place here over the next few weeks. If you’re able to make it, we highly recommend you do.
