Hobbies a hit at the Garden

Hobbies a hit at the Garden

There’ll be hobbies and handicrafts of all kinds at the National Botanic Garden of Wales on 25-27 May.

With displays of dolls’ houses by West Glamorgan Dolls House Society, jewellery demonstrations by Maggie C Jones, Dinefwr Photographic Society, British Woodcarvers Association, patchwork, quilting, lacemaking and more, there’ll be something for all the family.

Organiser Les Bryan said: “It’s set to be a tremendous event for the Bank Holiday weekend. The Hobbies Weekend has been a great success over the years and the Garden is a lovely setting for it.  We’re very excited and hope visitors will pick up some ideas for a new hobby.”


There’ll be plenty to interest visitors around the Garden, in Principality House and in the stunning Great Glasshouse.  For lovers of the great outdoors, there’s a chance to see the Garden at its most beautiful, along with canoes on the Garden’s splendid necklace of lakes. The Ladies’ Welsh fly-fishing team will be at the Garden for the first time too to offer some top tips.

Swansea Astronomical Society Talks will be held on Saturday, 25 May.  The magical Jugglestruck will entertain little ones on Sunday and Monday and the fabulous Quack Pack will entertain all ages on the Monday.  Fiddlebox will provide musical entertainment throughout the weekend and Wirral Choir will perform at 1pm on Monday.

Hobbies Weekend at the National Botanic Garden is on 25, 26 and 27 May from 10am-6pm each day.  For more information call 01558 667149 or e-mail info@gardenofwales.org.uk
