Now that Halloween is behind us and Christmas is just around the corner, we are all looking for things to do to get us into the Christmas spirit. With this in mind, we have compiled some unmissable winter events for you to enjoy over the festive period.
Swansea Christmas Parade
This year's event will take place on Sunday, November 20. Get ready to line the streets of the city centre to catch a glimpse of Father Christmas and to cheer on the entertainers, dancers and community organisations also walking in the parade.
This year's procession will begin at Victoria Road at around 5pm, before heading up Princess Way, Caer Street, Castle Street and High Street. From there, the procession will go towards Alexandra Road, before heading down Orchard Street and along The Kingsway.
The ideal event to get you into the Christmas spirit!
