Swansea Big Weekend

Friday, September 29, 2017 to Saturday, September 30, 2017

There’s a range of things to do on a night out in Swansea City Centre for all the family, and the annual Swansea Big Weekend is designed to introduce you to them all!

There’ll be theatre performances, street markets, film screenings, music and events, restaurant offers, dance, games, comedy, sporting activities and much more! And with Swansea being the only place in Wales that can fly the Purple Flag, you’re guaranteed to a enjoy a safe and entertaining night out wherever you visit.

As part of the Swansea Big Weekend, we’ll see the return of the Swansea Fringe Festival! Kicking off the first weekend of the Swansea International Festival, the Fringe sees some of Wales’ best alternative talent – in comedy and music, poetry and play – live at venues across High Street, Castle Street and beyond.
