It has been a hugely popular fixture of Swansea's summer social calendar, with hundreds flocking to Singleton Park to enjoy food, drink and live music whilst sat under a big top tent. The Swansea Bay Pop Up event sold a wide range of cuisines from Asian bao buns to plant-based burgers.

It was a huge success when it was open from 2020 to 2022. The event didn't take place in 2023, with organisers stating at the time it was to take a "short hiatus", before returning "bigger and better" for 2024. But Bruno Nunes, chief executive of Creative Hospitality Group, which is behind the event, has said the event now won't return until 2025.

Mr Nunes explained the event won't go ahead this year due to "human resources", and the need to concentrate on the re-opening and extension of its chicken restaurant Frango, and the opening of micro brewery Bella on Wind Street.

Mr Nunes told WalesOnline: "Due to human resources, we're behind on the re-opening and extension of our Frango venue, our micro brewery and new concept Bella, and we just don't have the capacity to deliver the standard and quality Swansea deserves, so it's with great sorrow we won't be able to bring the pop up back, but it is our intention to come back in 2025.

"Creative Hospitality Group is a Welsh independent hospitality business which does not have corporate resources to do everything we'd like, as the main reason for a steady considerate but tough decision not to return this year. But we are committed to the Swansea Bay Pop Up and look forward to 2025." Get the best user experience with WalesOnline’s Premium app on Apple or Android.
