Swansea Learning Festival Key

Swansea Learning Festival 2020

Swansea Lifelong Learning Service will be collaborating with Learning and Work Institute to deliver the Swansea Learning Festival 2020 in tandem with Adult Learners Week from Monday 22 June to Sunday 28 June 2020.

We are hosting a promotional event on Saturday 6 June 2020 in Castle Square, Swansea City Centre, to highlight the range of activities that will be taking place during the week of the 22nd June, and to encourage residents to sign up to activities. There will be live performances on stage, and marquees for learning providers in Swansea and the surrounding areas to use to promote your activities and learning opportunities.

If you were involved in the Swansea Learning Festival 2019, we welcome your involvement again this year! Likewise, if you weren't involved last year we would love to see you involved this year to help spread awareness of learning opportunities across Swansea!

Please email if you would like more information, or would like to take part if offering an activity at the promotional event this year.


Swansea Learning Festival 2019 highlights

More than 200 free events were organised as part of a major city-wide festival showcasing and celebrating learning for all ages across Swansea from 1-6 April.

The exciting events which catered for all interests, ages and abilities took place in traditional learning venues such as libraries, schools and museums but also in some more unusual locations including the Quadrant, Castle Square, Swansea beach and the No Sign Wine Bar amongst others.

The aim was to showcase the many different learning opportunities available to young people and adults throughout Swansea.

Activities included interactive taster sessions, exhibitions, demonstrations, performances, workshops and seminars which culminated in a free all-day family event in Castle Square on 6 April.

The Swansea Learning Festival 2019 brought together the community, education and training providers, council departments, cultural organisations, schools, businesses and voluntary organisations to celebrate learning through an assortment of free activities open to all. No matter how old you are, what your interests are or what skills you wish to develop there were opportunities throughout the city. The festival provided something for everyone.

Areas of learning included art and crafts, health and well being, sports and science, technology and media, poetry, entrepreneurial opportunities, business support and employability skills to name a few. The festival's themes of 'Innovation, Inclusive and Entrepreneurial' were also reflected throughout the celebrations.
