Bank Holiday weekend and School Holidays so what are you going to do this weekend and on into next week?
From Aberaeron to Lampeter and along the Teifi Valley back to the riverside town of Cardigan and down to Newport (Pembs) you will find lots to do for the family.

Highlights of the weekend
Into Music?
Starting tonight why not get tickets for Peter Knight of Steeleye Span at Rhosygilwen.  There are a few tickets left and tomorrow night Saturday is a real treat as the International tenor Gwyn Hughes Jones will be at Oak Hall at Rhosygilwen, thrilling the audience in recital with Michael Pollock on piano.  If the weather is kind why not bring a picnic to enjoy during the long interval.

The Eisteddfod yr Urdd 2010 commences on 31st May through to 5th June at Llanerchaeron near Aberaeron A family friendly festival, the Eisteddfod is a celebration of the Welsh language and culture as well as showcasing young, Welsh talent. (A friend of mine’s daughter is appearing with her school choir!)  There will competitions, live music, street theatre, stalls and exhibitions Brilliant day out for all ages.  The National Trust  house at Llanerchaeron is worth visiting at the same time.  Culture in abundance!

Into Craft Markets?
This is an extra special craft market at the Coach House in St Dogmaels  especially for the bank holiday weekend.  Not only will there be plenty of vibrant and interesting stalls for you to peruse but at the Coach House they have arranged various activities for children.  In addition the abbey is an interesting place to wander.  Stop and have a slice of homemade cake or light lunch in the café.  On the bank holiday Monday there will be live music and craft making demonstrations.
If the weather is good why not continue down to the gloriously sandy beach at Poppit Sands.

Into Activities?
You could not do better than to pop down to Llandysul Paddlers on the riverside in Llandysul.  This is a fabulous activity centre with well trained staff and instructors.  There is something for everyone and every age and every ability.  Why not try canoeing or Kayaking?  They also arrange for Coasteering activities off the coast.  Truly a great day out.

Want to Walk?

There is the Ceredigion Coast line which is stunning and relatively moderate walking or try the North Pembs coastling from Poppit to Ceibwr and onto Newport a little more challenging.  You may well spot a dolphin or two and the odd grey atlantic seal.

Into Golf?
Newport Links Golf Club is an 18 hole golf course which boasts the most fabulous views.  It has a lovely restaurant with a terrace which looks out onto a glorious vista from Carningli Mountain , to the estuary and onto the wild beach.
