Summer of Smiles – Build a bug hotel!

Now Sold Out.

Free bug hotel workshop for children as part of Summer of Smiles.


Delivered in partnership with Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales and Cardiff Council as part of the Summer of Smiles programme, Grange Pavilion proudly presents a free two-hour-long outdoor workshop for children and accompanying adults.


Create a bug hotel for your neighbourhood wildlife!


Children will be able to build and decorate their own mini bug hotel to take home. We’ll also hunt for the best sticks, leaves and other things that bugs like to hide in – to make your hotel the best place to stay!

This activity combines many skills and is fun to do – especially if you’re looking for something that you can achieve as a team (adults and children together).

Children under 7 years old must be accompanied by an adult. Please wear comfy clothes and appropriate footwear.

Parents are welcome to join in the fun or to wait on site and enjoy the Pavilion grounds and café.


Spaces are limited to 15 children. Booking is essential.  Click here to access the booking page:
