You might be forgiven for thinking that now Christmas is over, the most interesting part of winter has gone with it. That may be (mostly) true for everywhere else in the world, but Llandudno has always been a town which has proudly been very different from everywhere else. The best is yet to come, and with highly anticipated events such as the Victorian Extravaganza as well as Armed Forces Day, we’re already seeing a lot of demand for our rooms for this time ahead.
But what about right now? There’s a lot of things to do in Llandudno on a year around basis, and January in particular is looking like it’s going to be a month which is jam packed with fun things to do and see, and all manner of new experiences to be had on your holiday.
Venue Cymru in January looks to have a series of events scheduled to suit everyone. Of major note is the take pART festival which is a very well-loved yearly extravaganza, with drop ins and workshops from a series of notable creators such as Aardman Animations (of Wallace and Gromit and Shaun the Sheep fame) as well as Minecraft exhibits in recent years. 2018’s take pART festival is hot off the heels of the spectacularly successful 2017 event, which even incorporated a live show of the popular TV Science Show, Brainiac.
Other than the take PART festival, there’s a host of other reasons to book a few nights in this beautiful seafront town, too. The Llandudno Photomarathon is set to begin on the 7th of January 2018, which is a photographic festival and competition which is very proudly for everyone. Whether your thing is highly specialised cameras or even just your handy smartphone you’re welcome to attend and compete.
The Photomarathon is a non-snooty, no-holds barred challenge to get the very best pictures of the local area as possible in a strict time limit. Let the snaps begin!
The Wales Spring Fair takes place between the 21st to the 24th of January as well, and gives a rare chance to see the very latest and the very greatest from a series of reputable suppliers from the Wales area. An absolute must for those with their finger on the pulse of the lastest trends and fashions!
Our beautiful hotel in Llandudno is just a ten minute walk away from the myriad events and experiences happening within Venue Cymru, and we can’t think of a better place to stay. Our beautiful restaurant is in full swing as well, offering the very best locally sourced produce, allowing you to get a taste of the region as well. We can’t think of a better place to be this January!
