Join the 50th celebrations on video

RESIDENTS, school children and famous names are joining in Swansea's 50th anniversary celebrations by wishing the city a happy birthday via video.

Wales rugby star Alun Wyn Jones, world-famous composer Sir Karl Jenkins as well as local school children and residents are all becoming part of the celebrations.

Shortly after his investiture as Prince of Wales in the summer of 1969, Prince Charles travelled to Swansea to announce that Swansea had gained city status.

Now local people are joining in the fun by putting together their own videos to wish the city well in its anniversary year. And local people can join in too, simply by posting their own videos to the Swansea 50 web page.

In his video Sir Karl Jenkins said: "Growing up on Gower, Swansea was very much my home town, so it gives me enormous pleasure to wish Swansea happy anniversary on the occasion of its 50th anniversary as a city. Best wishes to all."

Anyone who sends us a video that we publish will be entered into a free draw with the chance to win a pair of tickets to see either the Swans or the Ospreys in action next season.

Contributing a video to the celebrations could not be easier - just direct message @50swansea on twitter, facebook or Instagram or tag your video #Swansea50
