Excitement mounts as Swansea 50 street party nears

The people of an historic neighbourhood are gearing up for a free street party celebrating 50 years of Swansea - and residents from across the city are invited!


Residents of Sandfields will get together with friends from across Swansea on June 27 to help mark half a century of city status.

Starting at 3.30pm - convenient for those towards the end of their school and work day, it will feature live music, other performances, street food and free activities. There will be art, poetry, drumming, a pop-up skate park, rides and games.  

Also being planned are a 50 years pop-up museum, outdoor art, talks and conversation along with a local heritage exhibition, tai chi and henna tattoos.

Robert Francis-Davies, the council's cabinet member for investment, regeneration and tourism, said: "This community event aims to embody all that's good about Sandfields and Swansea - and people from all over the city are invited.

The Sandfields event, in St Helen's Road, is being backed by the Fusion Programme, a Welsh Government-backed initiative managed by the council's cultural services team.
