Rainy Day Activities & Events

Here comes Autumn!

There are loads of awesome activities to keep you busy come rain or shine here in Carmarthenshire.

However, now that the Autumn months are setting in, you might well find that your next trip to this lovely part of the world is dampened somewhat by the ever encroaching rain!

If you’re weekend or holiday plans do happen to be thwarted by a persistent bout of rain, then don’t panic! There are loads of great activities, shows and events on this month that are bound to keep your kids (and you!) happy:

The Creepy Carmarthen Tour at Carmarthen

At a very reasonable £23 for families, this evening activity is the just the ticket for kids aged 8+, who don’t mind a walk on the wild side. Carmarthen is home to many historical landmarks that might not be of great interest to young ones, but they’re bound to find this ‘horrible history’ tour of the Victorian police station of interest.

Michael Morpurgo’s King Arthur at Y Ffwrnes

You’ll most likely have to book in advance to see this exciting new show, performed by one of the most acclaimed children’s theatre groups in the country, Story Pocket Theatre. An adaptation of Michael Morpurgo’s revised tale of the classic Arthurian legend, this touring production will be playing on the 11th and 12th October at The Ffwrnes. Head to: www.storypockettheatre.co.uk to find out more about the award-winning production company.

Skidz Karting at Swansea

It might be hammering it down outside, but that make will make very little difference to your family, when you’re speeding round the two custom-built tracks that Skidz run in Swansea. For young ones there are electric karts that reach the top speed of 6mph (suitable for ages 4-7). Older thrill seekers can jump into petrol powered vehicles and zip round a 350m track that has plenty of opportunities for overtaking. Check them out here: https://www.skidzkarting.co.uk/

The LEC at Llanelli

You might think that Laser Tag is a bit of a retro activity, but your kids certainly won’t! There’s a good couple of hours of fun to be had at The LEC where your kids will be able to make new friends (and enemies!) in a purpose built arena that includes an awesome glow in the dark arena and state-of-the-art equipment. The game is strictly non-contact and there are always trained marshals on hand to keep an eye out on any over-zealous soliders! Book in right here: http://laserzone.org/
