Indoor hospitality re-opens from Monday

Thanks to the continuing reduction in the infection rate indoor hospitality re-opens from Monday at pubs, cafes and restaurants. Six people from up to six households can visit together. Please remember it's likely to be busy, so book ahead and when you get there follow the advice from staff. Have a Plan B in mind, just in case it's too busy at the venue of your choice and wherever you go, if you're having an alcoholic drink, please act and drink responsibly.


Entertainment venues welcome you back

Places like cinemas, bingo halls, indoor play areas and bowling alleys can re-open from Monday. This is great news but indoor rules like wearing masks and keeping a two-metre distance still apply. Please contact the venue before you set out to check what they're offering and listen to staff advice when you get there.


Venues getting ready to return

Glynn Vivian Art Gallery, the Dylan Thomas Exhibition and Swansea Museum are all getting ready to welcome back visitors in the coming weeks. Current proposals mean that the Glynn Viv is opening from 26 May and the Dylan Thomas Exhibition is due to be back the following day. Swansea Museum is anticipated to re-open on 8 June. The National Waterfront Museum in Swansea, operated by the National Museums of Wales, is re-opening on 19 May.


Are you planning some get-togethers?

It's great news that from Monday organised indoor activities like wedding receptions indoors can include up to 30 guests and outdoor organised activities can include 50 guests. But please remember to follow the rules and keep your distance from others. Venue staff will be able to help you with your plans.
