No Comments World Party Events

City and County of Swansea has, once again this year, partnered with Swansea Bay REC and all the communities of Swansea to present the World Party Event. The event is being held on Sunday 1st July in Singleton Park, Swansea (Mumbles Road entrance), commencing at 12 noon and lasting until 6pm.

The World Party Event has become an annual event since it commenced in 2009. In past years it has been held outside the National Waterfront Museum. This year it has moved to one of the nicest parks in the area. The event will feature the best that each community can showcase in terms of culture and traditions. Dedicated marquees will be showcasing each of the communities from around the globe with a common theme of a united and integrated Swansea.

The event headlines with an internationally popular act “The Stranger Family”. There will be many other acts, dance and music from a local Celtic perspective all the way through to Bollywood dancing from India and Capoeira from Brazil. One of our local talent to perform are A3, the street-dance group consisting of three brothers of Zimbabwean heritage lead by Arnold Matsena. A3 became a national phenomenon in 2010 when the group became finalists in Britain’s Got Talent. This will be a great opportunity for everyone to witness cultural harmony that some said will never flourish and succeed.
