Christmas Fun at Swansea’s Waterfront Winterland
The Christmas spirit is truly alive at Swansea’s Waterfront Winterland this year and thousands of people have already been down to the attraction to enjoy the festivities.
Nigel Jones, Special Events Manager at The City and County of Swansea says “The ice rink has been well received this year and thousands of people have been on the ice rink in the first 2 weeks of opening. We recommend people book tickets in advance to guarantee their skating times, especially on weekends and after 5.00pm during the week which tend to be our really busy sessions.”
People who have never been on the ice before or haven’t been ice skating for a long time are encouraged to go in the morning sessions or early afternoon sessions which currently tend to be a bit quieter.
Rhys Morgan from Gorseinon took his family down last week and said “The kids couldn’t wait to go to Waterfront Winterland this year and we had a superb time. The atmosphere was great and the German sausages where lovely. We would recommend a visit to anyone with young kids.”
Santa’s Grotto, thanks to sponsorship by Royal Mail and Borders, is a must see attraction for younger children at the event. The Grotto has been decorated with a real traditional feel this year and gives children the chance to see Santa and give him their Christmas list as well as receive a present for Christmas. Don’t forget to bring your letters to Santa too as these can be posted in the Royal Mail post box on site. (Don’t forget to put your address on your letter and attach a stamp).
Fun fair rides, festive catering and occasional live entertainment fill the line up at the attraction this year. For further details and to book on -line go to www.waterfrontwinterland.com or ring Swansea Tourist Information Centre on 01792 637300.
The City and County of Swansea’s Waterfront Winterland is sponsored by Admiral and kindly supported by The Evening Post and The Wave and Swansea Sound.
