Every weekend this month you have had the opportunity to enter the intimate world of the artist during the Helfa Gelf (Art Trail). The Art Trail has been taking place every September weekend all over North Wales as local artists open their galleries, studios and workshops to the public so you can witness them create and discuss their creative process. There is only two weekends left to follow the Art Trail in Llandudno but there are many other reasons to holiday in the seaside town this season.
Now is the time to be dining out in Llandudno as the autumn equinox is coming to Llandudno hotels this Saturday. Day and night will soon be equal and this is a traditional time of year to celebrate the harvest in North Wales. You can discover the freshest local produce in top Llandudno restaurants as farmers harvest the very best of their crops. Why not learn about ancient Welsh harvest myths while you stay in Llandudno hotels? This gorgeous seaside town is filled with history from the Victorian Era stretching far back to the Bronze Age miners and further back to early man. Many ancient Welsh myths are linked to the land and time of the year. Harvest is a great time to reap the fruits of your labour so why not indulge in a holiday and celebrate all you have accomplished over the summer months? Farmers are very aware of the continued significance of harvest and autumn in our daily lives as this is an important time in their calendar. The weather we had in spring and summer has a great bearing on the success of our harvest. We can be cheerful that the warm summer this year has delivered a marvellous potato harvest for 2013 but the late cold snap in spring has not been favourable for onions. True food connoisseurs will choose what delicacies to sample based on the success of the harvest so they know they are getting the best produce.
As autumn deepens there are plenty of fabulous events coming to Llandudno hotels in addition to the great food. Llandudno Arts Weekend is taking over the town this weekend (20th-22nd) with a celebration of art and Llandudno’s Victorian heritage. Keep a look out for the unusual displays and Victorian Bathing Machines that are already appeared around the town.
October will bring the Cambrian Motor Rally to Llandudno on the 19th and the North Wales Fitness Showcase on the 20th. The Fitness Showcase will help you find out about keeping fit and exercise through a range of demonstrations and workshops. An assortment of Halloween themes are parties will take over Llandudno in late October and do not forget the annual fireworks display on Llandudno Pier at 7:30 pm on the 2nd of November.
Summer may be over but the excitement in Llandudno is here all year round.
