Enjoy Botanics in Bloom throughout August

A Swansea beauty spot will be coming alive to the sound of music this month.

Botanics in Bloom

Live music has been arranged every Sunday from 3pm to 5pm throughout August at Singleton's Botanical Gardens to mark the annual Botanics in Bloom festival.

Swansea Council is behind the festival.

The live entertainment includes the U3A Ukulele Band on August 6, Trim Bling Star on August 13, covers by local musicians on August 20, and the Swansea Accordion Orchestra on August 27.

Cllr Robert Francis-Davies, Swansea Council's Cabinet Member for Culture, Tourism and Major Projects, said: "The Botanical Gardens in Singleton Park are breathtakingly beautiful throughout the year, but they're at their most stunning in August when the Botanics in Bloom festival takes place.

"As well as the opportunity to enjoy features including the Japanese bridge and the stunning herbaceous borders, the live music being held at the gardens on Sunday afternoons throughout August will generate a hugely enjoyable visitor experience.

"We're lucky to have facilities like the Botanical Gardens in the heart of Swansea. It's a great spot to relax, gain inspiration for your own garden or sit and admire the views. Our fabulous parks are an important part of Swansea's culture, which could be shared and celebrated with the rest of the UK and beyond if we're successful in our bid that's now been shortlisted for the UK City of Culture 2021 title."

Singleton's Botanical Gardens was one of 14 Swansea beauty spots to be awarded prestigious Green Flag status last month in recognition of their beauty, quality and maintenance. Others included Clyne Gardens, Victoria Park, Brynmill Park, Parc Llewelyn, Cwmdonkin Park and Penllergaer Valley Woods, which is managed by the Penllergare Trust.

Large glasshouses, victory beds and a rock garden are among the other features of Singleton's Botanical Gardens. The gardens are open from 10am to 6pm throughout August.
