Action from an IRONMAN 70.3 Swansea.

A big summer of fun awaits Swansea residents and visitors as attractions and businesses look to build on a busy Easter.

Major events and a range of popular venues are among the things already catching the attention of local families, visiting groups and individuals.

They range from big-name concerts in Singleton Park to art gallery exhibitions and from spectacular beaches and parks to venues such as the LC and Plantasia.

Major returning events planned for the summer include the Wales Airshow and IRONMAN 70.3 Swansea.
