Coming up...in north west Wales

Community Events

Picnic
Get your picnic ready for a great bank holiday weekend outing.

It's May Day bank holiday weekend, so that means the Nefyn Show, Colwyn Bay Promenade Day (both Monday), Llandudno Transport Festival and the Victorian Extravaganza.

Staying on the Victorian theme in Llandudno, the traditional Punch and Judy show near the pier is 150 years old this year and has been in the same family all this time.

In Porthmadog the Welsh Highland Heritage Railway has a gala weekend with an international feel. There'll be a collection of railway equipment and engines from around the world and a range of different activities to get you steamed up.

Arts & Culture

Betty Mills has been recording the wildlife around Llandudno in paintings and embroidery for the past 20 years. An exhibition of her work opens on Saturday, 1 May, and runs throughout May at The Tabernacle.

Nature & Outdoors

Listen out for the spring arrivals on a walk in the woods at Penychnant Nature Reserve, high above Conwy, then pop into the house to see the taxidermy display or the latest exhibition.

The harsh winter has delayed many spring blooms, now they're all coming at once so there should be some magnificent displays in the great gardens open to the public. And if you go to Plas Newydd, Anglesey, look out for the shy red squirrels too.

TV & Radio

On The Great British Menu on BBC2 next week the Welsh chefs will be cooking up produce from National Trust properties, including Penrhyn Castle.
