Half-term fun for Swansea young people

Swansae Council has a line-up of activities to keep kids entertained this October half-term whatever the weather.

Swansea Council's Splat and Skool's Out programmes- for five to 13-year-olds and 11 to 19-year-olds respectively- are holiday activity sessions that provide and promote free and subsidised activities throughout the City and County.

In the summer there were over 27,000 attendances at Splat and Skool's Out activities- an increase of 3,000 on last year. The customer satisfaction rate was 96 per cent.

Cllr Alan Robinson, Swansea Council's Cabinet Member for Community Regeneration, said: "Each year thousands of children and young people take part in Splat and Skool's Out activities. Not only do they have fun but they also learn new skills and increase their self esteem and confidence."

There's a wide choice of activities available for all ages this half-term across Swansea that includes:
  • Getting up close to animals at Plantasia
  • Spooky storytimes at libraries.
  • Big Draw events at museums and galleries and fun fitness activities at community leisure centres.
Cllr Graham Thomas, Swansea Council's Cabinet Member for Culture, Recreation and Tourism, said: "I am delighted that we are able to offer a wide range of activities this October half-term. I would urge families to plan now as some programmes and attractions will soon be fully booked."
