Is your child interested in nature? Then join us for a couple of hours, while we go wild at Lake Vyrnwy. From bug hunting to pond dipping, den building and owl pellet dissecting, we'll get closer to nature together. Please note the activity chosen will be weather dependent. Booking not essential but if you can book ahead, we'd appreciate it. www.rspb.org.uk/discoverandenjoynature/seenature/reserves/guide/l/lakevyrnwy/about.aspx

We suppose eventually you might run out of things to do in Mid Wales. But we seriously doubt it.
For a start our landscape is designed for adventure. We’ve got cliffs for climbers, caves for cavers and gorges for gorge walkers. Forests to ride through, moorland to hike and hills to hang glide from. And more than enough water to keep our anglers, kayakers and white water rafters busy for the foreseeable future.
Plus we’re always thinking of new stuff to try. The sort of thing you didn’t know you’d always wanted to do until somebody mentions it. Soaring 2,000 feet up with the Black Mountains Gliding Club, for instance.
How about creating fire by friction or foraging for wild food with Red Dragon Bushcraft, tracing the World War Two aircraft crash sites of the Brecon Beacons National Park or learning to handle, feed and fly birds of prey at Pen-y-Bryn.
Or maybe your thing might be geocaching – the global treasure hunting game. A surefire way to get your kids out for a walk in the countryside when bribery and appeals to their better nature have failed.
Hidden away in various nooks and crannies of the Brecon Beacons National Park are more than 180 geocaches, from small film canisters to old ammo boxes. And you never know quite what you’re going to find inside. A map, compass and the clues on www.geocaching.com are all you need for the easier ones. You’ll require a handheld GPS unit and a bit of ingenuity for the rest.
Semele argoeli i fod yn wledd prin i'r rhai sy'n mwynhau y ddau opera a cherddoriaeth y cyfnod baróc. Perfformiwyd gan gymysgedd o fyfyrwyr a chantorion proffesiynol ifanc, a gyda cherddorfa mewn cydweithrediad â'r Academi Cerddoriaeth Hynafol
Semele promises to be a rare treat for lovers of both opera and the music of the baroque period. Performed by a mix of students and young professional singers, and with an orchestra in association with the Academy of Ancient Music and also featuring student musicians this is an opportunity to experience Martin Constantine’s thoroughly contemporary rendering of the work and enjoy the exquisite melodies and lifting choruses that Handel is famed for.
