The annual May Day Bank Holiday Craft Fair showcasing a wide range of lovely stalls featuring locally hand-crafted products in a glorious setting is happening at the National Botanic Garden of Wales on Saturday, Sunday and Monday – May 4, 5 and 6, from 10am-6pm each day.

Lord Foster’s amazing Great Glasshouse is the venue for this fabulous event which will include locally-made crafts and gifts; from scented candles and bath bombs, jewellery to homewares, to woodwork and glasswork items.

It will be quite the weekend! The Garden will be looking fabulous and there’s a feast of family fun and games throughout the three days with the world-famous Quack Pack and Folly Farm’s favourite magician Jugglestruck in attendance plus Cinema under the Stars on the Saturday night, too!

On Monday May 6, come and celebrate the start of summer in the traditional Welsh way – Calan Mai!

Join us from 11am-4pm for creative fun including mini maypoles, tree decoration, May baskets, nature trails, dressing up and face-painting. Suitable for all ages.

See stunning daily flying displays from the new British Bird of Prey Centre and warm up with the butterflies in the tropical Butterfly House, Plas Pilipala.
