Day 1 of the Bridgend ‘Elvis ADVENTure’ Christmas competition

Before Elvis sets off on his Christmas 'ADVENTure' he needs to warm up a little, so before all the action he's going to stretch his legs and soak up the beautiful Bridgend scenery. He's had the beach boy blues for a while now so it'd be good to be back by the seaside!
..
To get the most out of the beautiful scenery of Bridgend how about taking a look through the BridgendBites brochure?

Did you spot the hidden Elvis song title? Click here to enter our competition and win one night's stay & afternoon tea at Coed-y-Mwstwr Hotel AND £100 of shopping vouchers at Bridgend Designer Outlet!


Get your boots on, it's Love2Walk Festival!

Looks like it's time to lace up those walking boots and get exploring - the Love2Walk Festival is making a triumphant return to Bridgend this half term!

The Love2Walk Festival is back for its 4th year this autumn, (Thursday 31st October - Sunday 2nd November) and promises to be the perfect solution for keeping the whole family entertained this half term.
Back are the firm favourites: Food Foraging in the Merthyr Mawr dunes, Meet the Dairy Cows and a Nature Walk at Parc Slip; but we're also introducing new walks which are sure to have the little ones enthralled...
Learn to make your own lantern before using it to light your way in a Lantern Parade in the Ogmore Valley, or join us in Evanstown for Stargazing whereby Techniquest will be bringing their mobile planetarium bringing the night sky to life and learn about our Solar System.
And if that's not enough to have you tempted, join Love2Walk for history and heritage, Only Dogs Allowed and a Ghost Walk!
Visit the website for more information, or follow us on Facebook and Twitter for regular updates!

The Love2Walk Festival is back for its 3rd year...
Love2Walk is back for its 3rd year this autumn and is set to be bigger and better than ever! Last years festival was hugely popular and this year's festival will be no exception with 40 walks being planned. There will be a variety of walks to choose from which will give you the opportunity to explore the stunning scenery of the Bridgend Valleys to the blue flag coastline.
However, Love2Walk is no ordinary festival, boasting a succession of quirky walks to choose from such as ghostly encounters, bat detecting and fire walking. Or why not learn about Bridgend's heritage and history?
